5 Things To Love About Ferry Travel in May

There are plenty of fun reasons to ride the Ferry every time of the year, but with Mother’s Day, Memorial Day weekend, and the sun finally bringing some warmer weather, there are so many things to love about a May ferry cruise. Here’s five reasons why you should hop on the Ferry this May:

1. Warm Weather

The cold of winter is finally gone, and the April showers are over. It’s finally time to go out and enjoy the sunshine and the bay breezes without a big bulky winter coat. There are so many great places on the Ferry to get some sun and enjoy the weather.

2. Wildlife

Spring is a time when many birds, and a lot of the local marine life, are either migrating or nesting. What this means for us is that we get to see a colorful menagerie of birds, dolphins, whales, and much more from the Ferry!

3. Biking

Now that the sun is finally shining, it’s time to take your bicycle out of the garage and onto the Ferry! There are fabulous bike trails located within just minutes of both Ferry Terminals, and the May weather is an excellent time to explore them. Also, bikes ride free on the Ferry with a foot passenger ticket!


4. Fun & Food at the Ferry Terminals

May is a great time to enjoy many of the happenings and community events going on at our Ferry Terminals. Plus, with the opening of our On The Rocks Dockside Grill, you can sit down and have a delicious meal while you’re there.


5. Day Tripping

As the weather begins to improve, and the calendar starts to make its way toward summer, the cities surrounding the Ferry begin to open their doors for shopping, sunbathing, food, and many other great local events. The Ferry is a fun way to explore the other side of the Delaware Bay, while also getting to take a fun, relaxing cruise.
