Cape May Whale Watcher - Cape May: $20 for One Big Trip Whale-and-Dolphin-Watching Excursion from Cape May Whale Watcher in Cape May (Up to $40 Value)

A recent survey ranks whales' bellies ahead of safety-deposit boxes and mattresses as the preferred place to store valuables. Experience one of nature's most priceless resources with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one admission to the three-hour Big Trip whale-and-dolphin-watching excursion from Cape May Whale Watcher (up to a $40 value). Big Trip tours depart daily at 1 p.m. and admission for children 6 and younger is free with each paid adult.

Garnering a smorgasbord of press and awards including recognition from the New York Times, Cape May Whale Watcher guides seafarers on newsworthy expeditions of the Atlantic’s Delaware Bay, boldly guaranteeing every passenger aboard glimpses of a marine mammal. Wading into the bay’s fish-thronged island estuary, the three-hour Big Trip pledges possible sightings of bottle-nosed dolphins, sea turtles, or Poseidon’s weekly trident-throwing practice. Wayfarers then turn their sights to whale watching, veering offshore to tail the bay’s gams of humpback, fin, and minke whales. Set out to sea on the 110-foot Cape May Whale Watcher, a vessel specially designed for crowd-pleasing marine safaris. Cetacean excursions are captained by the ocean-savvy Jeff Stewart, who has narrated voyages in both English and Porpoise for more than 30 years.

While aboard, seafarers satisfy the call for landlubbing creature comforts with amenities including a fully stocked snack bar serving draft beer and wine. The boat has heat and air conditioning for maximally comfortable dolphin viewing and debates on whether or not whales are made of cheese.

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.

I loved this so much that I bought another as a gift. The whales weren't showing the day we went but the business isn't responsible for that. It was an enjoyable sail and experience. Go!

Perfect day on the bay and seeing Cape May from another angle. We love Cape May, so this was great to see the dolphins and being out on the water. It was nothing like North Carolina with the dolphins coming close to shore, but still a great experience and the boat and staff were amazing.

What a great trip! Unfortunately, no whales sighted in early September, but we saw HUNDREDS of dolphins!!! We liked the crew so much, we took a tour of the Delaware Bay lighthouses with them a few weeks later.
