We did the Sunset Dolphin Cruise and saw lots of dolphins! It was an enjoyable time. We had 5.00 off coupons before we purchased so for $50 for my husband and I it was a reasonable price. My husband is definitely prone to sea sickness so we were careful to check out that this was a larger boat before booking.... More

We recently took the morning Dolphin watch with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 granddaughters. From age 3 to age 62 in our party, we were all delighted with the amount of dolphin sightings. The boat was spacious and the narrator of the trip spoke clearly and was so informative, pointing out several newborn dolphins. Free coffee and juice was offered... More

We took the Sunset Dinner Cruise and had lots of fun. We would do it again Bring a sweatshirt, as it can be breezy.

Tonight my family went on the 6:30 PM Sunset Dolphin Watch, despite cloudy skies. Soon after leaving the dock, it began to rain, and the storm became bad...winds, lightening, VERY choppy water. People could barely keep their balance on the boat. Instead of staying in the canal or bay, the Captain chose to take us out into the ocean. Big... More

Dana D, We are sorry to hear that the excursion you had aboard the Cape May Whale Watcher did not live up to your expectations. The night in question is recorded and I have looked over the notes from the Captain's log and I would like to clarify the facts. The Cape May Whale Watcher was in the Cape May... More

We took a three hour trip to look for whales & dolphins. We didn't see any whales but saw numerous pods of dolphins during the trip. It was a great experience and you can rent binoculars if you don't have to see the Dolphins or whales. The Captain & Crew were very good and helpful in the cruise. You can... More

My husband and I had a great time on a three hour cruise (the 1 PM departure). We bought out tickets online the day before, buy one ticket get one half off ($60 total for the two of us). When we got to the dock, we found a free parking lot with attendants who work for the whale watch ships.... More

This was our first time taking a Dolphin cruise and we were in for a treat. We got to see over 50 dolphins during the cruise and ended up with some amazing photos. But what really impressed us was the captain and crew. The crew were all very professional and the captain was not only very skilled and knowledgeable when... More

We been on these before but all 9 in our group said this was the best one ever. Over 50 dolphins cool breezes, and great views of Cape May. The captain covered so much about dolphins, how the sleep, breed, live and why the best place to see them is in the ocean. Then he shared about some of the... More

I would sit on the beach for years and say I would not go on a dolphin watch boat well in the pass three years has that changed. Last night started with beautiful weather clean boat and excellent and very knowledgeable commentary throughout the trip and free pizza or hot dogs. And now the star of the show the Dolphins...
