That was awesome I had no idea you could go on such a tour from capeay! I will be recommending that to others!

Interesting information was given throughout the trip.

It’s a big ocean out there so spotting a whale is understandably not so easy. It is more like a dolphin watch and a tour of the cape may coast line. Good sized boat so great for families with children.

What You'll Get


Whale-watching tours offer intimate glimpses of marine life, a luxury once reserved exclusively for those brave enough to dunk their heads into a lobster tank. Witness a less pinchy natural wonder with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

The Sunset Dolphin Watch cruise is currently out of season; the cruise will resume again in June 2013. 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 keeps guests informed on passing sea birds and other creatures.

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.
