  • Ferry to Pea Patch Island - Fort Delaware State Park
 

The State of Delaware acquired the fort in 1947 and opened Fort Delaware State Park. Access to the island is by ferry only, leaving from Delaware City in Delaware or Fort Mott in New Jersey. The only fee to visit this historic park is the cost of the ferry ride ($11 adults, $6 children). The ferry landing on the Delaware City side sits by the Eastern Lock of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal, at the end of Battery Park. The ticket booth has a civil war gift shop and information about the island and it's history. There are no vehicles on the island, expect for the tram that takes visitors from the dock to the fort.

Ferries from Delaware City begin at 10 am and the last ferry to the island is at 4 pm, leaving every 1/2 hour (except 10:30 am). The last ferry from Pea Patch Island back to Delaware City leaves at 5:30 pm. See the attched link for ferry schedule...and enjoy!
