GRAND LIGHTHOUSE CRUISE

Cape May Lighthouse with Saint Marys by the Sea

Coastal and off-shore lighthouses have helped mariners navigate the Delaware Bay for years, but the off-shore lighthouses are best seen by boat. To aid ships sailing the treacherous mid-channel of Delaware Bay, a series of lighthouses was constructed in the 19th and early 20th century. Most of these are still operating and all are automated. They stand on pedestals surrounded by water out of sight of land. Visit seven of these off-shore lighthouses aboard the Cape May Whale Watcher and learn the unique history of each on this five-hour cruise that includes breakfast and lunch buffets.  The lives saved by these lighthouses are countless, even today.

$159.95 Adults
$135 Children (7-12)
