This was quite a pleasurable cruise. Easy to book, easy to find and run by really nice people. Unbelievable how many dolphins we saw. Highly recommended for couples or families. 👍

We have taken (and enjoyed) the dolphin watching cruises out of Cape May but this was different. The way the dolphins swim in the wake and follow the Thundercat is unique and an incredible experience. The Captains are good-humored, local guys.

I have been on this tour 3 times and was never disappointed with the crew and the amount of dolphins we saw. If it's too windy they will not go out into the ocean. They are very kid friendly and let them sit in the...More

The area is terrible for gps. That’s why when booking everyone must check a box saying they will not use a gps before they can leave the sight. Sorry it affected your experience as it did. It is our Achilles heal. 🐬

You do not need to wear a lifejacket on the boat. They do have plenty of lifejackets on board if needed. There is a good safety briefing by the captain before leaving the dock.

Every trip honesty is great for dolphins. We see them regardless of time of day. However, our morning trips are most popular with customers.
