I have been planning this trip for a year. Last November, I contacted Capt Jeff and asked if it was too late for the trip. He said, that late in the year they play it by ear, depending on the weather. Since I wanted to take a group I decided to wait for this fall. I investigate all of my... More

My husband and I were down on a short weekend for our anniversary and decided to give it a try. We went out on their smaller boat. There were about 40-50 people. It was a very choppy day. The ship was comfortable and had rest room facilities as well as a snack bar. The crew was very nice and the... More

Went out on the water today. We went because we had a groupon- which is a great deal-but it had expired by the time we went. They honored the monetary value and we paid the difference. Kids under 7 are free. You can take a cooler (no alcohol) which sort of explains why it's 40 bucks a head. I have... More

This was a very pleasant cruise on a comfortable ship with good facilities and services. They had free coffee and donuts and other items for purchase. We had a great trip and saw plenty of dolphins. The captain really made sure we could spot them and spent time in the area where they were. The commentary was informative and the... More

We go on this every year. We love the complimentary pizza & hot dogs for the sunset cruise---its our meal that night!!!! We love their guarantee about the sightings, we've had a couple free trips as a result of that! Although, most of the time the dolphins are quite showy, lol. The crew is extremely nice and very knowledgeable about... More

We went on the Lighthouse tour. We loved it, even if it rained a little. We did stop to see a school of dolphins. The captain of the ship had a lot of information to all the lighthouses and the dolphins. He pointed out the babies.

I called in for information about the tours & the lady that answered the phone was pretty nasty, I only asked a few reasonable questions about booking the trip & her attitude showed very ugly. Where do these people come from, trying to do business & expect for everyone to load their pockets with our hard earned money when they... More

The dolphins were easy to find as they stay in the same general area. A whale is much harder as they travel much more. Still, the extremely informative captain knew where to go. A passenger sighted the whale. The captain stayed with the whale long past time to return. Even though we were 1/2 hour late, no one minded. This... More

I highly recommend the Cape May Whale Watcher. Be sure to book the one in the Miss Chris Marina because there is another attraction with a similar name and not as good. The Cape May Whale Watcher cruise is on a very clean and comfortable ship, staffed with a knowledgable and friendly crew. We saw many dolphins during the entire... More

We have a good time to see the mother and baby dolphin swimming around the boat. It's a good family outing for your children. The captain is well-knowledgeable and informative. You will enjoy 3 hours dolphins tour but we don't see any whales. Please prepare the medicine or plastic bag if you have "seasick".
