I was interested to see if we would really see a whale. We saw quite a few dolphins at first. Many of them had young ones with them - so cute! They actually came out of the water high enough that you could see they were checking us out as much as we were checking them out. We went out... More

We had a nice trip, did not see any dolphins but did see a young humpback whale feeding. He tried very hard to find some type of mammal for us to view. The trip is a great view of the whole area from the bay though the ocean. We had coffee and donuts for free on our morning trip. It... More

The cruise was very nice, the food was very good but it is advertised as a buffet but it really is not. They ran out of prime rib just as the last in line were getting their's and there was no more. Overall it was a nice cruise and the wait staff did a great job.

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.
