Stunning shoreline with soft waves lapping a wide open beach and blue skies overheadCape May is the perfect destination for a classic American beach vacation.

During summertime, the beaches are full of colorful parasails, fishing boats, and carefree locals and visitors splashing in the waves. Are you ready to come and see what makes Cape May a top vacation destination? Keep reading for the top things to do on the water in Cape May this summer.

A Summer on the Water

One of the reasons Cape May became so popular is simple: the beaches. It is America’s oldest seaside resort and enchants every guest who comes to stay with us. For folks that are drawn to the water, you can enjoy almost every kind of water sport you can imagine. Today, we’ll highlight just a few!

Kayaking – Cape May is a paddlers paradise! Explore salt marshes and wetlands, go on full moon and sunset tours or just spend the day around the harbor. There are several local companies that can get you set up with all that you need for a day on the water. Get single and double kayaks, paddles, life jackets, instructions and maps of the waterways. Check out Aqua Trails, Miss Chris Marina, and Cape Kayaks.

Whale watching – A definite must while staying at the Carroll Villa Hotel. The area is rich in marine life due to the combination of fresh and saltwater currents. It’s even possible to see whales and dolphins from the shore! But getting out on a whale-watching cruise is the best way to see graceful whales swimming through the seas. The whales around Cape May are migratory, so if you want the highest chance of seeing them, book a tour between May and September. Also, it’s a popular activity so best to book in advance! Try The Spirit of Cape May and The Cape May Whale Watcher.

Fishing – If you are interested in a fishing excursion while in Cape May, book one of the area’s charter fishing boats for a deep sea and Delaware Bay fishing trip. Licensed captains and helpful crews take the worry out of navigating the waters yourself and get you right to the action. A few miles out to sea could bring tuna, bluefish, shark, sea bass or mahi-mahi. In addition, closer to the shore you are likely to catch strippers, kingfish, sea bass, bluefish, and tautog. Click here for some fishing excursions.

Beaches – The stunning, pristine beaches are a main reason this area has the reputation it does! Even though the beaches have different names, they make up one long stretch of sand and your Cape May City beach tag is good at any entrance. Find a list of local beaches here.

If you have yet to experience stay at our resort hotel, it is time! Don’t let this summer go by without taking the opportunity to create lasting memories. Book online today or contact us anytime with questions or assistance in planning your next getaway.
