If you like to get outside, breathe the ocean air and even watch some majestic marine creatures during your stay, Cape May is the right place to be. We are located right on the Atlantic coast and there are several boats ready to take you to see the whales and dolphins close by, an experience you'll remember for a lifetime. Cape May whale watching is a highly recommended activity for all visitors to the south New Jersey shore.
The location of Cape May makes this journey convenient as well as memorable: the Cape May Whale Watcher fleet has reported that many of their sightings take place within just ten miles of the shore. Cape May's closeness with Delaware Bay directly off its coast means that whales and dolphins can be found faster and seen for longer amounts of time.
Two companies the Cape May Whale Watcher fleet and Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center service the area. The Research Center is the only research facility in the state to allow public participation at sea, while the Whale Watcher Fleet claims to have the largest boat in the area. Both Cape May whale watching adventures are guaranteed to give you a free trip if no wildlife is sighted.
