During two- or three-hour tours, experienced captains ferry passengers into the thick of where whales breach and dolphins play for an intimate and exciting viewing experience. As the boat circles the island of Cape May, a knowledgeable naturalist guide helps passengers spot breaching dolphins or whales and alerts them to passing sea birds and other creatures.

Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center

In 2012, after more than two decades studying marine mammals off the New Jersey coast, the founders of the Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center welcomed the American Star into port. The whale-watching vessel journeyed more than 8,700 nautical miles from Seward, Alaska to Cape May, allowing the opportunistic research team to expand its private-exploration and public-sightseeing operations.

Today, the Research Center’s captains and guides effectively welcome up to 150 passengers on the opportunistic research team, relaying the basics of wildlife scouting before boogying into Poseidon's ballroom to scope out dolphins, whales, and birds around the island of Cape May. An enclosed, climate-controlled cabin keeps passengers comfortable during misty weather, and multiple, spacious sundecks allow for up-close views of migrating whale pods. On-board sonar, radar, cameras, and GPS capabilities facilitate up-close, unobtrusive sightings of nature in action.

Probably the easiest Groupon for an event I've ever redeemed! Very easy to book and they had plenty of openings. They take your information at that time, so all you have to do that day is show up and accept your tickets. Very dog friendly activity, so long as the dog is leashed. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. We saw maybe a dozen dolphins from afar and a beautiful sunset. Well worth $20!
