Unless there is is strong wind against tide and you're going into it, the Delaware is no special threat. Go for it. If the wind is nasty and on the nose, wait. It probably wouldn't be dangerous, but it wouldn't be fun either.

I've been to Cape May perhaps 40 times (my father is an artist and paints there - blog listed below) and perhaps 10 times by boat. We have also waited a day to leave a few times, when the weather the next day was better.

Cape Island Bikes (690-884-8011) will bring a rental bike to any marina!
Utsches is nice (609-884-2051) but they don't like my beam! You may see us over at South Jersey Marina at about that time.
