Fine job of giving us information about the sea mammals. I was particularly glad they said they communicated with other boats on the lookout for whales. They can’t be guaranteed. The dolphins were amazing in such close family groups. (Assumed of course) The shade, the snacks helped make the time pass. The ocean was lovely.

The staff on the boat were all so very friendly and informative. The guide who was doing the narrative, giving us the history of Cape May, NJ and info about the dolphins and whales and aviary was terrific at what he did and spot on. We are excited to do this again the next time we are in town again.

We boarded the boat and left on time. Stopped at several locations where fish were located that the whales eat. We also stayed out longer than we were supposed to as there was a whale in the area. We did get a brief sighting of the whale before going back. The crew keep tabs on what is going on on the boat. There was a large group on this trip with many children that were running around. On of the crew told them they needed to stop running or they would have to sit the entire trip. I was glad they are aware of what is happening on the boat.
