Reservations were suggested, so we booked a sunset trip. It was BOGO for the adults and 25 for our 9yr boy. After all said and done it was about 69 dollars for the trip. We never have been on one and the girlfriend really wanted to go. We left on time and it was a really nice. Saw many dolphins... More

staff was great! Tour was pleasant (although would enjoy a "kidless option") We saw plenty of dolphins!!! I do think $6 to rent binoculars for 2 hours is a bit much in addition to having to pay for drinks but overall worth the money!!!

We went on the 3 hour whale and dolphin cruise recently. It was a really awesome time. The boat was nice and seating was comfortable. I also enjoyed the educational commentary from the staff. We were able to spot over 300 dolphins feeding off the coast of Wildwood! We picked a beautiful day to cruise out in the Atlantic ocean.... More

The sunset cruise around CM is all about the dolphins. And there are quite a few to see. The young ladies were excellent guides. Very enjoyable!

My family (myself, wife, 7yr old, and 2 yr old) went on the 2 hour dolphin watch. We do this every year and every year it raises the bar. Since the dolphins weren't as plentiful as usual, Melissa, the naturalist on board kept everyone's attention by pointing out other wildlife in cape may. This kept my children interested and behaved.... More

We had a great time on the sunset cruise! Free pizza and hot dogs too! Absolutely beautiful trip! My kids 12 and 6 loved it! They have a food/beverage concession booth also.

We purchased 6 Living Social Vouchers for a 2.5 hour whale and dolphin trip and scheduled a date. However, that morning, my husband, four children and I were watching the weather at 6:30. There was a flood warning for Cape May Country (and surround counties to the south and west) and it was pouring rain. We live in Cape May... More

This was our second trip to watch the dolphins and whales. Though we didn't see any whales on this trip, the dolphins were our in full force. We got some great pictures and were very entertained by their playfulness. They came right up to the boat and surfed in the wake as we traveled around the island.

Although we didn't see as many whales and dolphins as I'd hoped, it's still money well spent. The staff is EXTREMELY friendly and welcoming. They're warm and they seem to genuinely want to answer your questions and explains what's happening. Melissa was very helpful and she explained things about the area, as well as the dolphins. Kathy was on the... More
