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...

This dolphin watch boat was recommended to us by a couple ladies in Cape May and we are glad we took it. We did not make reservations though in the height of the summer season, it is recommended. The captain and crew were very personable and gave some interesting historical facts along the way. Best of all they emphasized that... More

We saw many Atlantic Bottle Nose dolphins on our trip. You could tell how passionate the Captain was about their health and well being by the info he shared.For example, pregnant dolphins, at least with the 1st pregnancy, return to their birth pod and are attended to by a dolphin "midwife". Very interesting trip. Gorgeous scenery.

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

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
