I am rating this a one star, if it were up to me, I would rate it none. The reason for my low rating is because the "captain" is a really rude person and his wife makes excuses for him as to why he is rude. Really? Berating your customers has an excuse? When we went to complain that the,... More

Made a booking thru Groupon. Called to register for a tour and was greeted by a very rude person. When i tried asking him to not be rude and i can understand what i see in writing, he hung up the phone on me. Most ridiculous behavior.

My 3daughters and I recently spent a week at Wildwood. We saw an ad for Cape May Whale Watcher and decided to take the 3 hour dolphin and whale watch cruise. We had a fabulous time. The ship has comfortable seats, clean restrooms, and a nice snack bar. We saw MANY dolphins and 2 whales! All 4 of us agreed... More

Fantastic cruise! History of Cape, dolphin and whale facts and although we did see a whale, we saw scores of dolphins and enjoyed a beautiful sunny boat ride. Hats off to crew who helped my dad who uses a mobility scooter for outings such as these, could not have been any easier on this excursion.

We had a great experience with no complaints. I purchased our tickets thru Groupon a few weeks before our vacation. We arrived about 40 minutes before our 1:30 departure time. When it was time to board, we were one of the first to get on the boat. The sea was very calm & we saw hundreds of dolphins. Just when... More

We sailed out on the 1 pm cruise yesterday. The weather was gorgeous, due to traffic we were slightly delayed, and arrived a few minutes after the scheduled departure time, My wife called ahead and they said to try our best and they would wait, which they did. Captain Jeff Stewart and crew were excellent hosts, and we were able... More

Overall our experience was great. No complaints whatsoever. My group consisted of four adults, plus one child age 3. We all had an amazing time. Although we knew going into this that there was a good chance of NOT seeing a whale, we thought it would be worth the chance, if we saw one or not. We felt this was... More

The boat was clean and appeared to be nicely maintained compared to other type whale watches/dolphin watches I've been on. Overall though, we were disappointed because we didn't see any whales or dolphins. The captain said he would give anyone who wanted another trip in the future -- a free ticket. That is a kind gesture, but we won't be... More

A group of friends and myself had purchased tickets a couple weeks in advance for this as a part of our trip to Cape May, only to be turned away due to an overcrowded boat. Upon arriving, we joined decent sized line of people. The family in front of us walked up to the booth with their tickets, and were... More

We went on the 6:30p cruise yesterday 8/11/14 with friends. Parking was free and easy, the crew and captain where very knowledgable. The boat was clean, free food was good. We saw so many dolphins, you didn't know what side of the boat to stand on. The sunset was breathtaking. We used the groupon and this was an awesome deal.... More
