Can't wait to go again. Extremely entertaining and well worth the money. We followed a mother with her calf out of the bay. A must see and well worth it.

This was great. Giant boat-about 85 aboard (holds about 150). We did the sunset cruise with 14. They load at 6:00 and promptly leave at 6:30. You can sit inside at tables on the bottom or top floor or view from the outside on either floor. You leave through the bay and travel to the ocean. They guarantee that you'll... More

Whale & Dolphin watching is always interesting, especially if you take the dinner cruise ( 6:30pm each evening ) The only issue I would suggest if you have children under 6 years old ,I would suggest you skip this because many passenger's do get upset if the child is loud and make their displeasure known and no parent wants that...

This was our second time on the Spirit of Cape May. We saw dolphins both times. My daughter and her friend loved the boat ride. Food was ok. Waters can get a little rough, but we would still recommend the attraction.

We chose this boat ride toward the sunset hours because of the heat of the day. It was surprisingly a delightful time of day...actually romantic in a way. We saw lots of sea creatures and wonderful shore birds. The staff was helpful in pointing out different sea life along the way. Would reccomend the sunset cruise and plan to go... More

Unfortunately, it was not good weather but we did see a lot of dolphins. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the dolphins-it made it enjoyable learning about the area that you were in and passing by. We were on the top deck in the back where it was all open. I would love to take this tour... More

The host who narrated about the dolphins was very knowledgeable; and, thankfully we caught a good, sunny day to go on a Saturday. The crew was very friendly, and the boat was clean and safe. Got to see some baby dolphins swimming alongside of their mothers. Very nice trip.

Staff friendly. Good info - at times could not hear everything but the view and weather were fantastic. Did not eat or drink anything although coffee and danish were free Friend made reservations and was told when they would run because they need a minimum Check ahead - Also if you need Cape May souvenirs the shop had great buys

While on a break during a convention in Wildwood, several of us opted to take the Spirit of Cape May for a 3 hour whale watching cruise. Though there were no whales in the area that day, there were tons of dolphins greeting us at every turn. The Captain was very knowledgeable and informative as the cruise went on. Refreshments...
