Take a cruise up the Delaware Bay aboard the newly refurbished Cape May Whale Watcher for a superb lighthouse viewing experience. See and photograph historic lighthouses which were built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries as aids to ships sailing the treacherous mid-channel of the Delaware Bay. Most of these lighthouses stand on pedestals out of sight of land and are still operational. Each cruise also includes narration on Delaware Bay lore and legend, including information on fishing, spawning grounds, and more.
See all of the Delaware Bay lighthouses viewable by boat: Cape May Lighthouse, Harbour of Refuge (Lewes); Delaware Breakwater East End (Lewes); Brandywine Shoal; Fourteen Foot Light; Miah Maull Shoal; Cross Ledge; Elbow of Cross Ledge; and Ship John Light… all in one excitement-packed seven-hour trip!
Cruises depart at 10 a.m. from the Miss Chris Marina, 2nd Avenue and Wilson Drive, and include complimentary continental breakfast in the morning and a lavish buffet lunch. A cash bar is available.
Seating on each trip is limited to 175 passengers. Free parking is available at the marina.
