Great fishing trip. Better than other boats I have gone on. We caught fish, crew was very helpful with baiting and removing fish. Definitely the cost. I will go back again.

Took the 2 hour dolphin tour in Aug 2021 with 2 adults and 4 teens. First impressions: They actually have a guy directing you where to park since they have limited spots, super helpful. Staff was friendly and helpful directing you to get tickets and get on board. Ship was well maintained and clean, plenty of seats, and freedom to move around. Once underway: Smooth ride, captain takes care to minimize wake and ensure the ship doesn't get bounced around too much. Again, super friendly staff to help, get your drink and food order at the concessions. (Our ticket included a free hot dog for each passenger) Nice beer and drink selection, for example local IPA on tap. Narrator had tons of energy despite having done this tour a million times, I'm sure. Saw many dolphins, very up close to the ship. Kids loved it. Great being able to move around between inside, outside, bottom deck, and upper deck. (Only about 15 other passengers on our tour) 2 hours was just about right for duration; any longer would have grown a bit dull. Overall: The upbeat, pleasant staff, the duration, and the proximity of the dolphins made this trip 100% worth it.

We booked a morning Dolphin watch tour and loved it! The captain and naturalist on board were so kind and knowledgable and we saw lots of dolphins, pelicans and other birds. I grew up a few towns over from Wildwood and even I learned so much about the ecosystem and shoreline. The boat was spacious and not overcrowded so you could move about freely. Also, they have a touch tank for the ride back where they were able to let kids actually hold a crab, coral, sea sponge and touch a horseshoe crab, which was my 4-year-olds favorite part! They also explained that they release the animals in the touch tank each night so they do not get stressed out so it was nice to know they truly care about the animals and the environment. It was great seeing Cape May from a new vantage point and learning more about the history. Would definitely recommend!

We took our (almost 4 yr. old) Grandson on the Pirate Cruise. He loved it! The employees/cast we’re very friendly & interactive with the kids as well as the adults.

Went on a morning fishing trip at the end of June. The boat had way too many people on it (think the mate said there was 89 on board). They definitely need to limit the amount of people on a trip. You could only drop your line straight down and then most of the time it would get tangled with the people next to you. $60 to catch the line of the person to the right or left of you is no fun. We didn’t catch anything. Kept moving from spot to spot, and then went back in. The mates were very friendly and helpful (especially with untangling people’s lines). Most in our party agreed that this was a waste of time and money due to the amount of people on board and the cramped fishing conditions.
