The right tour if you're seeking dolphins!

I purchased a Groupon for 2 for a dolphin and whale-watching tour for myself and my 12-year-old son. They "almost" guarantee that you will see dolphins and suggest that you may see whales on the 3-hour tour. I read the reviews, which are quite mixed, so kept my expectations reasonable and figured it was a good price and we would... More

When we got on board and underway, the captain announced that the fishing in the bay was horrible so we had to head out 1.5 hours into the ocean. So, that cut down significantly on fishing time to about 1.5 hours for a 4.5 hour trip. When we talked to the person manning the ticket counter a few days before,... More

My wife and I went on the 2005 4th of July cruise, which anchored off of Rehoboth Beach. Some of the folks on the cruise somewhat dressed up, but they needn't have bothered. I expected a clean boat at the least, but we were picked up immediately after the boat came in from a daily fishing excursion and dropped off... More

Paid for half day fishing trip over the July 4th weekend, The boat stayed in same spot for the entire trip ( about 3 hours ). There was no fish at the spot. There were about 20 people on board, maybe caught 15-20 croakers in total. The captain is not even trying! Stay away from this company !

We purchased this tour for our group of 10 on a Groupon, and it was a fantastic deal. We had absolutely no problems redeeming our vouchers on the day of our reservation, and were just happy that a group our size could be accommodated. I will preface the rest of my review with this--our group was comprised of 7 adults,... More

We went on a family trip aboard the Thelma Dale V to see whales and dolphins. It was surprisingly great! We saw dozens of dolphins - mostly in groups of two or three, but once in a group of about ten. Then, we followed a humpback whale off OC, MD for an hour or more. It was great -t he... More

Bought a groupon for this place for a 4 hr fishing charter (GROUPON BEWARE) for my dad for a Fathers Day present. Reserved this beginning of August (YES I TALKED TO A LIVE PERSON) as I was coming in to PA the weekend after labor day to visit from FL. Now LEWES DE is about a 3 hour drive south... More

We chose to go on a Dolphin tour instead of taking my 8 and 5 year old daughters fishing, and it seemed like the right choice! It was set to be a 2 hour tour, but it ended up being almost 3 hours which was just fine with us! We had a nice trip out, saw about 12-15 dolphins, and... More

I purchased the dolphin and whale watching tour at Fisherman's Wharf via Groupon. Our tour was at 1:30pm on a Sunday and we were told to arrive 30 minutes prior to sail time. On arrival we checked in at a little shack that resembled a bait house, and proceeded to the end of the pier where our vessel ,the Adventurer... More
