That was a mistake. Sure we saw dolphins creating the water, but it took 30 minutes to get to the first spot and then, since there was nothing to see, we went tol another spot. There we saw some and got some nice pictures. However, we were out for 90 minutes on a 3 hour cruise, (a 3 hour cruise).... More

It was good and the food was great but the trip was a bit too long and I really dont enjoy rocking on a boat for 3-4 hours.

Love this cruise. Based at the Miss Chris Marina, there is a other boat called the Cape May Whale Watcher. We've been on both. If you don't see at least some dolphins, they stamp your ticket and it's good anytime. We used ours one year later with no problem. Don't expect to see whales off of Cape May, but usually... More

Wanted to do the dinner cruise but it was all booked up, so we settled for pizza on deck & watching the sites. Ended up to be a super great time. Don't expect to "eat" on board as you get a slice of pizza each (flyer said unlimited) but the experience is worth the price. The captain in great too.... More

We went on the three hour whale watcher, but we didn't see any whales but tons of dolphins. They were amazing and the captain got us real close to them. The crew knew the area well and shared a lot of local interest in addition to information of the sea life. Of course my granddaughters had to have pizza and... More

Went on the one pm trip, the trip is 3 hours for dolphins and whales. My wife and I loved the trip. The captain and crew was great. The captain told and explained facts about the local area and about dolphins and whales. They also served light food and drinks. You could also rent binoculars if you did not bring... More

Can't wait to go again. Extremely entertaining and well worth the money. We followed a mother with her calf out of the bay. A must see and well worth it.

This was great. Giant boat-about 85 aboard (holds about 150). We did the sunset cruise with 14. They load at 6:00 and promptly leave at 6:30. You can sit inside at tables on the bottom or top floor or view from the outside on either floor. You leave through the bay and travel to the ocean. They guarantee that you'll... More
