Whale Watching

What a beautiful bed and breakfast

This was our second time staying at The Bedford! What a beautiful bed and breakfast. The hand-painted artwork on the walls is stunning and I love the two huge staircases that greet you as you enter. Clean and comfy, warm and friendly. Archie, the owner, serves a delectable array of breakfast items for your enjoyment as well as tea time snacks. He helped us with our dinner reservation as well. Very accommodating in every way. Gorgeous interior! Highly recommend The Bedford Inn!!


Things to Do in Cape May, NJ

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.

This is our new “clubhouse” in Cape May.

Archie and his staff do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The breakfasts are absolutely fabulous (decadent French toast, pineapple crumble, Cape May Eggs … just leave your calorie counter at home!) and tea in the afternoon (a fresh baked good, a savory snack, and tea and wine) is always a welcome break in the day. Rooms are pretty without being fussy and the location is great.
