Wanted to do the dinner cruise but it was all booked up, so we settled for pizza on deck & watching the sites. Ended up to be a super great time. Don't expect to "eat" on board as you get a slice of pizza each (flyer said unlimited) but the experience is worth the price. The captain in great too.... More

We went on the three hour whale watcher, but we didn't see any whales but tons of dolphins. They were amazing and the captain got us real close to them. The crew knew the area well and shared a lot of local interest in addition to information of the sea life. Of course my granddaughters had to have pizza and... More

Went on the one pm trip, the trip is 3 hours for dolphins and whales. My wife and I loved the trip. The captain and crew was great. The captain told and explained facts about the local area and about dolphins and whales. They also served light food and drinks. You could also rent binoculars if you did not bring... More

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
