The boat itself is nice. The trip itself is wonderful to be on the open water. Our only downside was the captain was mad at a gentleman for breaking the handle on the sink in the men's room. It was an accident, I am sure but the captain was rude about it while on the loud speaker and just went... More

There was nothing to dislike. We saw many dolphins. We didn't order the dinner so I cannot comment on that. We did not get in line for their free pizza and hot dogs, but that option was very popular, and perfect for families with kids! The captain was very informative. The sunset was beautiful. They give senior rates. Something very... More

If you go to Cape May, you NEED to go here. Not kidding....this was a highlight. I've been on other boat tours/watches, but this was about the best experience in every way. The price was very reasonable (especially if you have children), they gave you a continental breakfast (free food & others do NOT do that), the seats which you... More

Took the Cape May Whale Watcher 3 hour cruise and it was worth every penny! We saw tons dolphins. Went off the coast of Wildwood, NJ. Then head south towards Cape May and saw 35 foot whale! We followed the whale for about an hour. Saw the whale about six time! It was a day I will ever forget! Captain... More

I would suggest the Sunset cruise as the Sunset over the ocean is truly incredible. We loved seeing the dolphins play in the wake of the boat. We did the regular ride that had free hot dogs and pizza. (nothing to write home about for sure) You can opt to do dinner on the lower deck, don't know how the... More

It is July 2. We bought two tix for July 3 fireworks cruise for $70 at 11:30 this morning and have the receipt to prove it. We learned from the tourism kiosk in town that the Lower Township fireworks scheduled for July 3 were cancelled at 10 am this morning. So they sold us tix for something they knew or... More

aeasmmikey, I am sorry that you had a poor experience with our staff. The majority of our patrons have a positive experience with our cruise. The Lower Township Fireworks were postponed by Lower Township at 11:26 AM on July 2, 2014. The fireworks were rescheduled for July 5, 2014. The fireworks were not cancelled, and the excursion which you purchased... More

My Fiance liked the customer service. They have a limited selection of wines. It's a small store so he didn't expect much but he found what he wanted.

Visited 9/28/13 for the sunset 2-hour cruise. Enjoyed the trip through the Cape May Canal, around the tip of the cape through "the rips" and back up to the Cape May inlet. Narrative was very well rehearsed and informative. Crew served pizza and hot dogs throughout the trip, and beer/wine was also available (cash bar). The boat was clean, seats... More

My wife and I took a ride on the the Cape May Whale Watcher, Spirit of Cape and had a very enjoyable time. The weather was awesome, the trip around Cape May by water was informative, the food was plentiful, the sights were beautiful. A few degrees warmer and it could have been Florida rather than New Jersey - It... More
