    Great day trip

    Took my pup and the crew was great. He was even given treats ! Some of the ferries allow for pups to go inside and other don’t. The ferry we took going allowed him inside and the one coming back didn’t. Which was okay because we enjoyed the breeze on the deck.

    Cape May NOT dog friendly but Ferry is Great!

    The Ferry is great!
    However, in Cape May, dogs are not allowed on the Washington Mall, which is the main drag of the place (where you most want to be).

    This is a great time. Dog friendly spaces inside and out.

    WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FERRY! They are so dog friendly and very organized. Hassle free entrance and exits. One of the staff members came over to our two pups and gave them a first time sailors certificate with their names on it! It was the best! Will definitely come and ride again. MUST do in Cape May with your fur babies!

    Nice way to travel

    When traveling to NJ I have used the ferry many times. In the summer I recommend making a reservation. The terminals and the ferry treat the pets well.
