I bought a Groupon for a dolphin and whale watching cruise for my three grandsons (ages 8, 10, and 15). We took a three hour cruise and saw what seemed to be 100s of Atlantic bottle nose dolphins or the same 25 four or five different times! Doesn't matter which because it was very exciting to see them. We even... More

Two of my aunts, two of my cousins and I took the 3hr dolphin/whale watch cruise on 7/12 at 1:30pm. The boat was late to leave (2pm) because they were waiting for people stuck in traffic. If you get seasick easily then you will want to take Dramamine. The ocean wasn't rough by any means but you do feel the... More

We took the 9:30 Dolphin Watch on a Weds in early July. It was a fabulous trip. We found every aspect of dealing with the Fisherman's Wharf Cruises to be terrific and thoroughly professional. We called a few days in advance to reserve our spots-- the reservation was waiting when we got there. They charged a discounted price for our... More

Took the 3 hours whale/dolphin watching trip and had a lot of fun with the great swells which made our fishing boat bounce around while out in the ocean current...not for the queasy un-medicated folks...so if you are easily seasick you should take 2 dramamine or other meds of your choice....yes we saw lots of dolphin!! At least 2-2 1/2... More

I went on a dolphin tour back in 2008 and had an absolutely great time. I came across this page and saw all of the bad reviews and was somewhat worried; regardless, I wound up going on a fishing trip and a dolphin tour in June 2014. We had an absolutely great time. The fishing trip got off to a... More

I bought a Groupon for a half day of fishing and have not been able to make a reservation -- they won't call me back after three voice mail messages. I'd really like to go to this, but after reading other reviews, I don't think it's a good idea to just show up. I'm requesting my money back from Groupon.

It was a fun trip. I felt sick at the beginning but got better later. Easy to make catches, but hard to catch one that is long enough to take away. Service was nearly perfect. Staff will help to unhook the fish after you pull the fish up.

Our group spent two days fishing with Rick and crew. They had beautiful weather and caught a mess of sea bass. 23 keepers the first day and 12 the second. The crew was very helpful and nice.

This fishing trip was horrible. Caught one fish and stayed in one spot way too long. I don't recommend this charter. Not worth the money.

We had been looking forward to this fishing trip for months. I reserved a spot for us in the evening after checking their online calendar to make sure there was a trip going out that day. There was and the lady confirmed it on the telephone. We drove the 4 hours to Lewes and arrived at the wharf 30 minutes... More
