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

What impressed me the most is that the captain stayed out extra time so we could enjoy the whale. We got back to the dock later because the big ole whale decided to entertain! We also saw many, many dolphins. The weather was perfect, too! All these luck of the draw items made for a fabulous 3 hour tour!

A whole lot of sunshine, the salt air and wind on my face, and the open ocean. Plus a kazillion dolphins and a showoff humpback. At least 5 breaches (tail shots) and a rare spy hop. This is our second time out with The Cape May Whale Watcher team The captain and crew were so knowledgeable and friendly....There is simply... More

This was our first time on the Cape May Whale Watcher. The staff were all very friendly and the views were beautiful. We have been on many other Dolphin cruises and we always saw dolphins. This year we did not see any dolphins! The great thing about the Cape May Whale Watcher is that they guarantee sightings, and if you... More

What an amazing 3 hour trip that went well over 3 hours. Great boat, amazing ride, dozens of dolphins and then the whale. So much information about cape may and the sea life. We were so pleasantly surprised when it was over. I cannot wait to go out again and again now. I will recommend it to anyone who asks... More

Sometimes, people deliberately employ rude behaviors to achieve a goal. I don't know what her (the woman on the phone) goals were when I called to make a reservation but when questioned for more information regarding the whale and dolphin tours, her brashness and violation of human dignity must have had the goal of discouraging my participation in their tours....

We took a day trip to Cape May to do this. The staff was every friendly and helpful. the boat was clean and comfortable. The tour was informative and interesting. The Captin was great. We got to see 2 different pods of dolphins. One had maybe 10-20 dolphins then as a bonus the Captin took out a little longer then... More
