I bought a Groupon for this attraction, but I would definitely go again and pay full price for it. The captain was amusing and the staff were all very nice. We did the 6:30, 2 hour cruise. It was supposed to rain that night but ended up being beautiful with a spectacular sunset and a beautiful rainbow after a 2... More

The boat was fairly comfortable, as these types of boats go. Very crowded, LOTS of children, but we were able to see the dolphins, and there were a lot of dolphins to see. We didn't see a whale but I wasn't disappointed. The trip is just long enough and the captain has interesting narrative that lasts almost the entire time.... More

Good Little Trip,the crew were very nice. They were really good at spotting the dolphins. Also very informative about the coastline on your cruise.I'm sure you will enjoy it. However if you go on the sunset cruise,you'll enjoy the sunset but have a bite to eat before you go,they try, but the pizza they offer isn't that good.

The boat was great. Fun for all ages, lots of dolphins and a whale! Decent bar. Free pizza and hot dogs which we didn't try. Lots of information was given. Fun and interesting.

Yesterday was the second trip my fiancé and I took on the cape may whale watcher. This time we brought along two of her sisters and one of her brothers and his girlfriend. Last year when we went, we went in May, we were not fortunate enough to see a whale, but we did see plenty of Dolphins. Regardless though,... More

Went a few days ago on the three hour whale and dolphin tour. We went twelve miles out to sea, and saw pods of dolphins like i never saw before! The captain was very informative and truly loves the ocean and its creatures! Remember or rent binoculars! There were baby dolphins attached to their mothers but not visable to the... More

We have always seen the Cape May Whale Watcher boats out to sea. Went on a 2 hour dolphin watching tour. You get great views of Cape May from all sides. Interesting facts about the area and it's history. Of course spotting a pod of dolphins is the main reason. Amazing to see these beautiful sea creatures up close. Even... More

My family went on the 10AM dolphin tour and absolutely loved it! We got a deal on groupon not really sure what it was going to be but ended up pleasantly surprised. The tour was amazing and we saw tons of Dolphins and got great pictures. The tour was also fun because they give you cape may history as well... More
