Cape May Whale Watcher
Cape May is reporting a great deal of whale and dolphin activity off the shores of the Montreal Beach Resort. An while you can often see dolphins swimming by in the distance while standing on of our upper floor room balconies, there’s nothing like venturing out for a chance to see them – and perhaps a whale or two – up close and personal. Many of our sightings occur within the Delaware Bay or within ten miles of land. This allows for an awesome offshore experience for the family and something to do with the kids as well as seasoned adventurers and seafarers. The three hour excursion is fully narrated by your Captain who will point out local history along with many types of marine life. Tickets are available for purchase and excursions occur daily at 1 p.m. Bring home some “whale tales” from your vacation at our Cape May Beachfront Hotel.
