Dolphin Watch Cruise

Cape May Whale & Research Center’s Around Cape May Whale, Dolphin & Bird Watch is an abbreviated version of our afternoon Whale, Dolphin & Bird trip. The trip includes venturing out the Cape May Inlet and down the beach along the Cape May beachfront. You will discover Cape May from a brand new vantage point, the Atlantic Ocean from Poverty Beach to Congress Hall to the Cape May Lighthouse and everything in between. Our naturalists will point out Cape May Harbor landmarks Cape May Points of interest Cape May Historical facts; just a side note , one of our naturalists is from one of Cape May’s original families! Most importantly, as we encounter our local wildlife whether it be inshore while we are skirting the coast or offshore as we search for whales, our experienced naturalists will identify both birds and marine animals and identify and impart comprehensive and informative facts with emphasis on conservations throughout the cruise. This cruise has a touch tank on board with creatures from our regional habitat and a marine debris station for hands-on learning.

As a member of Whale SENSE, a voluntary program which trains all of our captains and naturalists on responsible marine mammal viewing techniques, you can be sure the American Star sets the example for all other vessels on the water. As with all of our cruises, you can always rest assured with Cape May Whale Watch and Research Center’s Marine Mammal Guarantee. In the event of no Marine Mammal sightings, including whales or dolphins, you will receive a free return trip because we value your experience with us and want you to witness all that our Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay ecosystem has to offer.
