Fantastic Boat Trip
Jun 2021 • Couples
Had a blast on this trip. Staff was very friendly and informative. Excellent tour of waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Saw tons of dolphins including a calf jumping up with his mother. Unfortunately no whales but not for lack of trying. Felt safe even though waves were bit rough in one direction. Beautiful views. Snacks and drinks were available for purchase. Would definitely do again.

This is a fun way to spend a few hours, meet new people, and learn some of the history of Cape May while watching the many dolphins swimming around the boat.

Not worth it. Waste of money. NO WHALES.
Our family of 6 did this cruise and it was awful. The boat was so noisy and the PA system was so shoddy (speakers were broken) so we couldn’t hear the “tour”. We let a crew member know and he told us the rules we missed over the “loud” speaker but we got nothing out of the “tour” part. Biggest disappointment: NO WHALES. We saw maybe a dozen dolphins and they weren’t even close or chasing the boat. With Groupon this was almost $200 for our family and a total waste. I asked a crew member if they’d seen a single whale all day and he said no. Shouldn’t be advertised as a whale cruise.

Beautiful day, saw a lot of dolphins. I wish the tour was a bit shorter (we ended up on the 3hr one) but overall a really nice experience!

Best thing in Cape May.
May 2021
Captain Jeff expertly piloted his craft to provide an hour or more of continuous dolphin watching. Excellent! Along the way, we were provided with a detailed narrative of the surrounding area and attractions. This tour was one of the best things we did on this vacation. I cannot recommend it more highly. Go for it!

This was not a Gilligan's Island cruise!
May 2021
Cruise was scheduled for 3 hours, but captain sailed the high seas for another 1/2 hour looking for a/any whale. Bummer none were found but the dolphins were in abundance following, surrounding the boat and even breaching the water. Spectacular cruising weather; everything organized; boat in great shape. Crew was very attentive. We went all the way into Delaware Bay. If no whales are seen company offers a discount on a future cruise.

Captain went above and beyond for us to see a whale
May 2021
I have never written a review in my life but our captain really did everything in his power to try to get us to see a whale I felt it was the least I could do. We saw dolphins in the first 30-45 minutes and there was a lot of them. However, we spent the rest of the trip trying to find a whale. We enjoyed snacks and drinks while our trip searched, hearing information the entire trip but why I am writing this review is the determination of our Captain. He extended our time by over a hour just so that way he could continue to search for a whale. This is way above what is required of the crew to do and when we finally saw the whale it was surreal. I got amazing videos/photos for just using an Iphone. Our group was obviously lucky however, the captain was persistence was the only reason we got lucky. The crew can not control if you see a whale but they will do everything they can to try and get you to see one.

Good experience to watch dolphins.!!! Never saw a whale.
May 2021 • Friends
3 hours is long time for a boat ride. We did see a few dolphins and it was fun. Saw all the dolphins in first 30 - 45 mins. The remaining time on the boat is waste of time. Never saw a whale.

The boat was everything I expected, the crew was top notch, and I think each and every one of them checked to see if everything was good. The one down fall was the kids running around like banchie indians. Maybe offer a cruise time for 16 and older, and family with little ones a separate time

Dolphins galore
Mar 2021 • Family
Great time, and kid friendly. Saw tons of dolphins, but no luck with whales. The captain tried so very hard to track one down for us with no luck, but the fact he actually tried was good enough for me. Family owned. Highly recommend.

Ideal for whales, less ideal for dolphins
If you're here just for dolphin watching, I wouldn't recommend it. You're 50-75 feet away from seeing the dolphins
