It was a beautiful evening boat ride with a very educated (not to mention extremely kind) crew. The only thing that could’ve made it better was for it to be less crowded. My partner and I often found it difficult to fight to the head of the crowd to just catch a glimpse of dolphins and other ocean life. Despite this, we both still enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

This is the second time in three years that we enjoyed this excursion. The captain was extremely knowledgeable. We seen many dolphins and a few stingrays. It was somewhat cloudy this trip so we were unable to experience the beautiful colors of the sun set like our first trip. The crew were also knowledgeable and very friendly. We will definitely take the Cape May Whale Watcher excursion again.
