When even the crew and captain are dumbstruck, you know it was a good day of whale watching. On Sep 27, 2021, we definitely got our money's worth, and then some, when a single humpback whale was breaching for over 30 minutes, as our boat stayed parallel to its path. The weather that day was perfect, and the entire experience was simply magical.

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding Anniversary with different day trips all week. We ended with a great whale and dolphin cruise. This was our first time looking for dolphins but had been out to sea half dozen times before so we knew what to expect. Our experience on the Whale watcher was great. The boat was not at capacity so we were able to move around more freely. The personnel was great. The tutorials were informative. **one suggestion would be to update the loud speakers system, it is hard to hear when out in the open***. The weather was great and the seas were relativity calm (for the ocean). We spent most of the time right at the head of the ship. The COVID face masks came in very handy today and kept our face warm. I am sorry to say we did not see any whales, but we did see quite a few dolphin pods. I would recommend this trip to anyone. But please remember too, you will be on a big boat that goes out into the ocean and can hit some pretty good size waves.

While we didn't find whales this trip, as its faily late in migration season. there were a great number of dolphins, both in the Cape May Canal as well as in the ocean and Bay. The migration season also brought in the sea birds, rarely seen on land. The Captain was friendly, giving a lot of knowledge and guidance during the trip. The staff was very friendly. It had been cloudy all morning, but we got on the boat and the sun came through and it was a wonderful afternoon on the water.

Everything about the tour was first rate, from booking online, to check in-parking was well organized, staff was helpful and courteous. The adventure itself was a wonderful experience both for myself and my 12 year old granddaughter. We saw whales & dolphins, we enjoyed the refreshments, and really couldn’t have been happier!

Very reasonably priced! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable! Our boat was lucky enough to find a whale and stay alongside for a while. It was beautiful. Length of time is also perfect! 3 hours for a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Captain took extra time to see the hundreds of dolphins. We saw a few whales spouting and sleeping. Was great!
