No whales nor dolphins but we liked the trip regardless!

They gave us a free ticket to come back anytime - Does not expire. We brought our own lunch and then had some drinks onboard. Our 4 year old loved this trip.

Our three hour boat ride lasted much longer than that. The captain went out of his way to make sure that we had a terrific adventure and we saw a Finback whale as well as Humpbacks and dolphins. He was very knowledgeable and told us many facts about the area and the sea creatures. The crew and staff were great... More

We had a lovely afternoon on the water in spite of the fact that we saw no wildlife. The captain + his associates were knowledgeable & friendly, plus we were given free passes @ the end of the trip. What a sweet gesture!

We took the tour to see some dolphins and possibly whales, there were dolphins but we didn't see any whales. It was a very nice tour and the tour guides were very good.

I went on the 5 hour Lighthouse Tour scheduled for October 15th. What an absolute wonderful cruise!!! It was so informative and Captain Jeff was the best tour guide ever! The food was great and the other tourists on the boat were so friendly. The crew was great too! I went on this same tour many years ago and was... More

I've only been on the Whale Watcher twice, but since moving to Cape May County earlier this year, I could go every day. Just wish I had the time to :) Unlike so many things that people waste their money on during their vacations, a trip on the Whale Watcher is worth every dime. You get a pleasant ride on... More

This past weekend, we once again had the pleasure of taking the 2 hour Dolphin Watching trip. This boat experience in the sunshine(!) was the highlight of an otherwise rainy, windy weekend. If we didn’t have this to look forward to on Sunday, we would have gone home on Saturday. We were thrilled to see lots of dolphins! This was... More

My husband and I went on the 1pm Whale Watch tour on 9/20/2016. It was an amazing 3 hours!!! We saw numerous dolphins and further out had the blessed timing to see a humpback whale close up -- breaching the surface 11 times, slamming his tail down, and clearing his blow hole before coming to the surface. The staff gave... More

We went on the 10am whale and dolphin watching cruise last Sunday, two adults and two children. They do a great job, heading out the inlet and out to sea and then coming in past the lighthouse into Delaware Bay and then back to where we started in the Cape May canal. On the day we went we happened to... More
