* Note for Guests Arriving at Cape Crossing Resort and Marina

Please plan to arrive at least 45 minutes before cruise departure, to allow for sufficient travel time from the parking lot to the marina. Cape Crossing does not have designated parking so please be considerate of our other guests and boat owners. On the weekends it can be a bit of a challenge to fit all the vehicles coming in and out. There is parking allowed on the side of the road once in the resort.
