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...

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
