This was a highlight of our visit to Cape May! We arrived ~25 minutes before departure time so we got on first- we picked the top deck(up one flight of steps with a railing). I think there were food/snacks on the lower deck, but we didn’t get anything. The staff was very friendly. The tour was great- beautiful views, very informative tour guide. We’d definitely go again! A little windy at times so bring a hoodie just in case ;) we saw osprey nests and lots of dolphins.

We all had a wonderful time. We were together a family of 5 enjoying a perfect 3 hours looking for birds, dolphins, and whales. We didn’t see whales but we saw the dolphins with their family especially the babies! We ate and drank, relaxed out in the sun and in the interior seating with windows. The crew were so helpful both educational and informative on our coming again and we definitely will!!!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience . The crew and captain provided a fun and informative tour. We spent three relaxing hours at sea and learned about the local ocean life. Can’t wait to return. Thank you for this wonderful time at sea.

The captain was very informative. Boat was clean and everyone was friendly. We seen many dolphins but unfortunately no whales.

easy to book, true to advertisement, on schedule in leaving, well organized and lots of information given while on the cruise
