We had a lovely 3 hour whale and dolphin trip. Unfortunately we did not see and whales (we did see dolphins), however our tickets were stamped for a free return trip which was nice. The staff are very knowledgeable and pointed out many creatures along the way that we would've totally missed. The busy we were in had a heated enclosed downstairs with snack and drink options. The upstairs of the boat was open. We will definitely return for our free return trip. Great job by the research center!

I truly enjoyed this trip except that it ran an entire hour longer than it was supposed to. A lot of passengers were sea sick and if you had scheduled plans you were just out of luck because you were stuck on a boat. They should let you know ahead of time that it could last 4 or more hours.

What You'll Get

Just like humans, whales bring their young along on thousand-mile journeys and never, ever let them stop to see the World’s Longest Piece of Kelp. Do some seaborne bonding with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

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.

Snacks and drinks including soda, water, and adult beverages will be available for purchase on each cruise. Children ages 6 and younger are admitted for free, one child per paying adult.

About 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.
