Cape May, NJ

We're going "down the shore" to Cape May, NJ, for a day of fun in the sun!

Cape May Promenade

The day will start with a bus ride down to the Cape May Promenade, your gateway to the beach and unparalleled ocean views. Stretching for nearly two miles, enjoy a scenic walk past Cape May's beaches and visit the shops, including candy stores, arcades, ice cream shops, and beachfront restaurants. Beach tags can be purchased for $8 for those wishing to dig their toes in the sand or cool off with a dip in the Atlantic.

Cape May Whale Watcher

After an early lunch on your own, we'll board the busses and head to the Cape May Marina for a 3-hour whale and dolphin cruise on the Cape May Whale Watcher.

We'll head into the Delaware Bay Estuary, a sanctuary for many species of marine life.
