I got tickets for this trip on groupon and didn't know what to expect. Fantastic time, fantastic deal!!! The ship is big and clean and there are plenty of seating. I sat in the upper deck back, however I may recommend the front to have the best view of the dolphins, I took the sunset dolphin cruise and had such... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, being in NJ. Sure enough though, it was an experience. You definitely wanna check this out in the summertime. You'll see the most during that time, and you won't freeze.

Overall a very nice time. The ship is big, very clean, and they give you plenty of info along the way. The coast line was very beautiful at sunset, which is when we went. I thought is was a tad crowded that night but still a very good family time. I would return and very easy to book your trip... More

Unfortunately, this was not the best dolphin watching experience because it was a really bad storm not far. As we got out on the water, you could see the storm ahead so the captain turned us around. However, the kids enjoyed the free hot dogs and pizza. We saw several dolphins on the cruise which was great. Overall we had... More

While spending a weekend in Atlantic City I found a flyer for Whale watching off NJ. I could not believe it, because I believed I had to got Alaska to have that experience. I went online and found Cape May Whale Watchers. I booked for 2 adults and my granddaughter age 7. The day came and travelling from Brooklyn a... More

We were reluctant to do this tour because of the many negative reviews. I purchased a groupon on Friday night and went on the tour Sunday. I had no problems with them accepting the groupon, made reservations via phone the day before (saturday). Because we took the tour mid-November there were about 25-30 people so we basically had the boat... More

My family and I went in early October and were blessed with fantastic weather! We grabbed the Groupon deal for two for three hours. While we didn't get to see any whales that day, we saw plenty of dolphins and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The boat was very clean and large. The captain was very informative during our ride. If...

We have taken three excursions on the Cape May Whale Watcher over the last 14 months, and each one was a true pleasure. The first two included wine tastings and cruisings past three lighthouses, along with dolphin watching. There are always plenty of dolphins to watch, it seems. Most recently, we went on a three-hour dolphin-and-whale cruise ... and indeed... More

Experienced crew, great scenery, sat amongst pods of dolphins for close to 30 minutes! Very informative narrative while watching. Look for Groupon coupons for a great deal!

It was a nice boat trip for us and we enjoyed 3 hours trip. In the trip, we haven't noticed any whale's but we saw few Dolphins. Overall it's a good trip. It's located at 0'th exit of Garden State Parkway.
