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

The sunset dolphin tour was fantastic! Tons of dolphins, interesting commentary, & an unbeatable view of the sunset. Pizza & hot dogs for our 7 & 9 year old we're a huge hit. There wasn't a bad seat on the boat since there were so many dolphins & the captain would maneuver the boat so everyone got to see them... More

We took a two-hour dolphin tour in the morning. We saw plenty of dolphins. I really liked that the captain would stop while out on the ocean so the passengers could see the marine life. The waves definitely rocked the boat a bit, so you have to hold on and take your seat when instructed. It was a lot of... More

Tour was nice, we saw many dolphins jumping around.The length of the tour which was 3 hours was longer than required. 2 hours is justified for that kind of action. It got boring afterwards. Staff was nice, helpful and concerned about passengers safety. Snacks on the cruise were priced reasonable.

Got tickets cheaper via Groupon. We arrived there about 20 minutes before boarding time. They have parking across the street and a gift shop in front of the ticket booth. Boarding went quickly and we sat indoor cuz we had strollers... (I was quite nauseous but that's my fault) there were plenty of dolphins to see but no whales. We... More

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

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.
