Great experience! Purchased tickets via groupon and check in was a breeze. Took the wife and my two boys (8 and 7). Arrived 30 minutes early like the tickets explained and parking was great! Pleasant staff everywhere. We took the 2 hour dolphin tour which I would recommend with small children. Expected to see just dolphins but the Captain said there were some Whale sightings so he told us he was going to take a peak. Guess what, we spent 30 minutes tracking and watching a single Whale! Amazing! The captain also gave us a guided tour and spoke about some history of the area!! So in one two hour tour we saw Dolphins, a bold eagle, osprey and a humpback whale! That's a good day!!! So glad we did this and it's aways great to support a local business! Plus, I would have been thrilled with just the two hour boat ride! :)

Price: I feel it was reasonably priced for a three-hour excursion. We had buy one, get one half off, so $120 for 4 people. Service: Crew was professional, courteous, and appreciative of the business. Captains were knowledgeable and entertaining. Boat: Spacious, and clean. Obviously big enough to handle the Delaware Bay's choppy waters! Sightings: There are dolphins galore this time of year (porpoise in the colder months), so seeing so many of those was no surprise. We were fortunate enough to see a humpback whale--and followed him for about an hour. No breaches, but many "spouts" and one really nice look at the fluke. Overall experience: A note to parents of small children...please be attentive! Not all, but some, were a bit ill mannered, and could have easily spoiled an otherwise nice trip. Luckily it is a big boat, and my legs work. Give them a shot!

To captain Steward who manned the 10am tour on 4/30/2016. Thank you for make me feel just right at home like NYC. There's nothing more that I would enjoy then being cursed out while I'm on vacation. I went on a stair that was for crew members only. As soon as you told me, I apologized and when back down. I informed your crew member that there was no sign but you didn't want to hear it and threatened to turn the boat around. You said regardless, I have to follow the crew's instructions. Exactly what didn't I follow? Thanks for being so reasonable! Great class! My wife and 4 yr old son would have really enjoyed the ride if it wasn't for that.

Didn't see any whales, but we saw many dolphins. The crew are very friendly, and the captain has a great sense of humor. I recommend the sunset cruise, as the scenes are fantastic. Great for a date or for an outing with the family.

Awful experience!!! Be weary of pre-purchasing your tickets on Groupon for whale watching tours! I had purchased Groupon vouchers several weeks in advance for a family trip to Cape May. I made the reservations the same day I purchased the groupons for the 3hr whale and dolphin watch at 1pm on June 25th, Saturday. The same day of the tour (June 25th), I called beforehand to confirm my reservation for 7 people at 1pm; they confirmed and said they would hold the reservation until 12:30pm, and after that it was first come first serve. Fine. No problem. We got there at 12:20pm (after some minor GPS delay), and went to the ticket booth to give them our Groupon printouts, only to have them coldly refuse them and tell us that tickets had been SOLD OUT for the 1pm trip. I told them I called that very morning to confirm my reservations, and that we were still in time, but the ticket lady said they were sold out since 11:45am! There were also a couple other women inside the ticket booth just staring at us and making absolutely no attempt to explain why they sold our tickets before we even got there! Very very disappointed with this company, never going there again. Apparently reservations, groupons, and confirmations don't mean a thing to them. We eventually called another company, Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center, for their 1pm tour and got tickets immediately. They were extremely nice and friendly, and I would recommend them instead of this company.

Didn't get to see any whales but had a great time nonetheless! We saw tons of dolphins and the staff was super friendly. It was a beautiful day and the captain made the trip very informative and fun ! Would definitely come again.

Not one whale! Plenty of dolphins, but the tour is long and boring. I took my 5 yr old and 12 yr old and they didn't like it. 1 hour in the tour and there was a barf fest on the boat kids vomiting left and right, my 5 yr. old included. My recommendation is cut the tour time and maybe it will be more enjoyable, 3 hrs is ridiculous!

Good for dolphin watch only don't count on whale watching. Their guarantee is a scam which I was told says marine mammal and I won't get free pass upon not sighting whale during our watch expedition. Dolphin watching can be done on your own for free at USCG Entrance St (Google it) and park and go to beach. However not sure if it's public place but we saw lot of folks on the beach coming from that area.
