Considering there is zero practical reason to have the ferry from Cape May to Lewes other then to shuttle tourists and day trippers around who want to take a ferry ride...yes, it's kind of expensive. The per-person fares are higher then the Steamship Authority, only the car fares are slightly less expensive and the motorcycle fees are much higher on the Cape May ferry. The Vineyard needs the ferries to exist
, Cape May and Lewes would do just fine without the ferry.
Round-trip for a car: CML = $76.00 for 20' or less; SA = $105 for 20' and $85 for 17' or less.
Round-trip for a motorcycle: CML = $63.00; SA = $34.00
Round-trip for an adult: CML = $18.00; SA = $16.00
As for coupons for the Cape May ferry, I have used one in the past that my wife got online to take a one-way trip with my kids. It was good for roughly 40% off, but was off-season. Just look around online and you can stumble across the occasional offer.
