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 Three Options

  • $25 for a whale- and dolphin-watching tour for one (up to a $50 value)
  • $45 for a whale- and dolphin-watching tour for two (up to a $100 value)
  • $85 for a whale- and dolphin-watching tour for four (up to a $200 value)<p>

These three-hour tours depart at 1 p.m. on select Saturdays and Sundays in November, December, March, April, and May. 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.

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.
