Took a dolphin/whale watching boat trip on the Spirit of Cape May. It was an evening trip and included pizza and/or hot dogs. The boat had over 300 people on it, which made it difficult to see and to eat. The trip overall was enjoyable. The crew was polite and knowledgeable about the area. The scenery was beautiful. We even... More

We had a great time on our dolphin tour. We took the 2 hour morning tour and saw lots of dolphins. The captain is very knowledgable and shares good information about the dolphins and the surrounding area. There is free coffee and a couple boxes of donuts were put out for a snack, so I would recommend eating before you... More

We had a great time! The staff was excellent, and we loved seeing so many dolphins! We were able to take some amazing photographs of the shoreline, sunset and dolphins.

The boat trip on The Spirit of Cape May was so relaxing, the 6:00 pm. trip was perfect because the sun was setting and just breathtaking! We saw dolphins on the trip and the Captain gave a very informative tour by explaining in detail the different historical places, like a broken boat made for the War (Still in the Ocean),... More

We took the 10am cruise around the island and it was enjoyable. Have never seen so many dolphins. The Captain was entertaining. It was chilly but we did sit on the upper deck and learned a lot about the area.

They've refined their tour and technique to provide a very pleasant experience. It's great to sit up on the top deck and feel the breeze blowing through your hair while you soak up the sun. And marine mammal sightings are guaranteed! Our little family joke was that it meant the captain would jump into the water as a last resort.

It was actually May 2015 that my wife and I took the cruise. What a nice, peaceful and relaxing excursion around Cape May harbor, and I highly recommend it to anyone. Get to know some history, and get a good look at some of the beautiful homes on the water. Just one more of the countless amenities to partake in... More
