Twin Capes

New Jersey,USA

Twin Capes was a ferry built by Todd Houston Shipbuilding Company in Houston, and was launched in 1974 for the Delaware River and Bay Authority. She was one of the original three ferries to operate the ferry route between Cape May and Lewes. She was extensively refitted in the mid 1990's and classified as a cruise ship, but was advertised for sale a few
years later due to lack of customers. She was taken out of service and retired in October 2013 and added to the artificial reef program in New Jersey four years later. She was towed out of the Cape May Terminal to be stripped down and cleaned up before she was scuttled 15. June 2018 outside Cape May. The wreck rest today on a depth of 37 to 40 meter southeast of Cape May.
