This was fun. The Groupon special deal expired just days after I purchased it (read the fine print!) so I had to pay extra, but it was worth it. We saw loads of dolphins and we learned a lot from the knowledgable captain. Will be bringing others!

The owners of the boat and everyone who works for them are very friendly and helpful. The boat is very nice and clean and large enough inside for comfortable seating at tables. We enjoyed the ride and will definitely go out with them again.

What You'll Get


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.

Choose from Four Options

  • $15 for a two-hour dolphin-watching tour for one ($30 value)
  • $29 for a two-hour dolphin-watching tour for two ($60 value)
  • $25 for a three-hour whale- and dolphin-watching tour for one ($50 value)
  • $49 for a three-hour whale- and dolphin-watching tour for two ($100 value)

Tours start in mid-March and run through December. Check the Cape May Whale Watcher online calendar for exact dates. Tourists first plumb the depths of Delaware Bay, an estuary whose teeming piscine population makes it an ideal breaching ground for adolescent humpback, minke, right, and finback whales, as well as bottlenose dolphins. 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 Cape May's local history, marine biology, and whale-song translation. Up to 300 passengers can climb aboard the heated and air-conditioned boat, which features large upper decks in the sun and shade, padded seating, restrooms, and two bars rife with snacks, sodas, and alcoholic drinks.

About 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.
