When watching the streamlined body of a whale move with surprising grace under the waves, it’s easy to see how their species earned its nickname, “the monster trucks of the ocean.” Marvel at nature’s wonders with this Groupon.

Tourists first plumb the depths of Delaware Bay, an estuary whose teeming piscine population makes it an ideal breaching ground for adolescent humpback and finback whales. Next, the craft ventures into the open ocean to seek more sightings, many of which occur within 10 miles of land. The captain provides informative narration covering local history, marine biology, and whale-song translation.

Cape May Whale Watcher

The blue waves foam, disturbed by something massive in the depths. Then, in a flurry of spray, a humpback whale breaks the surface, slapping the water with its gray and white fins. This exhilarating sight is frequently afforded to guests of Cape May Whale Watcher. Helmed by Captains Jeff Stewart Sr. and Jr. alongside Captains Miles, Jack, and Jim, the company’s fleet of two provides comfortable, fast-paced passage to some of the favorite haunts of marine mammals on the eastern seaboard. Knobble-jawed humpbacks and smooth-skinned finbacks are often found frolicking and playing in the teeming ecosystem of Delaware Bay and the surrounding ocean, and the Stewart family offers a guarantee that if no whales, dolphins, or porpoises are spotted, tourists receive a complimentary, never-expiring voucher for another venture. Besides their cetacean-spotting voyages, the vessels run historical lighthouse cruises and catered sunset tours.

Reviews

The staff is VERY knowledgeable about the animals and we learned some interesting information about them and the Cape May area/ecology.
