Sunset & Wine Lovers Cruises on the Ferry

by Dave on August 27, 2009

Today, Cape May – Lewes Ferry (CMLF) officials announced that a series of four (4) Sunset and Wine Lovers Cruises on the Delaware Bay will be offered in September. The first pair of September Sunset Cruises will depart from both the Cape May and Lewes terminals on Friday, September 4, and will continue on each Friday in September.

According to Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations for the Cape May – Lewes Ferry, the special cruises offer a memorable, romantic way to experience the Ferry and the wonders of the Delaware Bay as a foot passenger. “What a great way to enjoy some good conversation and sample the world’s finest wines while gazing at a beautiful sunset on the Delaware Bay,” Gehrke said. “Think of the response when you say to your partner, “Honey, I’m taking you on a cruise! This is just one example of fun events that are held onboard as well as on both sides of the Bay beyond the end of summer and during the shoulder season.”

Enjoy a summer sunset on your cruise across the Delaware Bay as you savor some of the finest wines the world has to offer along with heavy Hors d’oeuvres. These cruises depart on four different Friday evenings: September 4, September 11, September 18, and September 25. The first series of Sunset Wine Cruises were held in June 2006 and were extremely popular with both residents and vacationers.

Cape May Cruises: Admiral Wine Merchants will be presenting world renowned wines. For New Jersey customers, the three-hour cruise departs the Cape May Terminal at 6:00 p.m.

Lewes Cruises: For Delaware passengers, these cruises will depart the Lewes terminal each Friday at 5:15 p.m., returning at approximately 8:15 p.m. Outlet Liquors will host the events, which will feature world class wines of different varieties.

Check-in begins in the ferry terminal 30 minutes before cruise time. The cost of the Sunset Cruise is $39, which includes a round-trip foot passenger ticket, wine samples and heavy hors d’oeuvres, informal discussion about the wine, the opportunity to purchase featured wines by the glass, and live music. Space is limited! Reservations are required at 1-800-64-FERRY (33779). Reserve today!
