Did the Fireworks yesterday ( July 3rd 2015).Was a total bust! Very unhappy. My wife and I have been out a few times before with no complaints. The boat ride alone is nice and though we never see whales we do see dolphin. Last night however leads me to believe that I will not be back again. Parking was terrible, boat seemed overloaded and unless you sat on the front of the boat, you got to see maybe half of the firework display.We were on the back. The boat points at the display leaving the people in the back and sides jockeying for spots when the boat shifted. Then if you want pizza, you wait in a long line. My wife did, and was able to only get 2 slices.1 slice per ticket.And she had to produce the tickets.Selling less tickets, ( even at a higher price) would have made it better. Yeah, I just convinced myself,I won't be back.

I am rating this a one star, if it were up to me, I would rate it none. The reason for my low rating is because the "captain"/owner is a really rude person and his wife makes excuses for him as to why he is rude. Really? Berating your customers has an excuse? When we went to complain that the, ehem, "captain" was rude and called me names because I wasn't moving fast enough for him (I was trying to let a family in front of me pass) he got out of his chair and started yelling at me, never thinking that calling his customers names, like ridiculous, was wrong, in fact he never even tried to apologize, and the wife just made more excuses for him. It's too bad that this is the "experience" we walked away with. I will never give them my business again, there are other whale watching companies in Cape May, I would recommend instead. Simply stay away, they are undeserving of your business too.

I went there on a cold rainy Tuesday in June. The interior was heated and the captain made the trip entertaining. It was a fun night out. The portions on the prime rib were very generous, and the rolls were great. I was told they are home made. The captain has a lot to say, and many dolphins are seen, but no whales. I would have preferred to change my day, but there are no schedule changes once you book so be careful to check the weather first. I am sure the sunset would have been breathtaking on a good weather day. This is a family business, and they really care about what they do.

Wow! My wife and I purchased five vouchers for ourselves, a friend, and her two young children to take a whale and dolphin watching cruise. While our friend is a local, she had never been on a whale and dolphin watching cruise. We boarded the boat and had taken our seats for the 1:00pm, three hour whale and dolphin cruise. The two little ones, ages 2 and 6 loved the trip. And while the two year old was fascinated with the the handle on a security gate on-board and would keep running over to the handle to move it up and down, the staff was pleasant and hospitable, and made us feel like part of their family. There is something for everyone on board the Cape May Whale Watcher boat rides. While we enjoyed a spectacular view of what must have been hundreds of dolphins; unfortunately, there were no whales to be spotted, despite the best efforts of our captain. Historical footnotes and anecdotes from a knowledgeable captain led to an enjoyable cruise by this history buff. A full snack bars with soft drinks and adult beverages is on-board for passengers to enjoy. The hospitality from Cape May Whale Watcher is amazing. Clean, friendly staff with plenty of attentive, free parking. Quaint gift shop full of a variety of curiosities. It is obvious that the Cape May Whale Watcher is run by a very involved family that takes great pride in their operation through the great upkeep of their vessels, the attention to detail, and the friendliness of their professional staff. We shall return in hopes of spotting a whale. Perhaps next year we will reserve the evening dinner cruise. One thing is certain, we will only leave port on board the red boats of the Cape May Whale Watcher.

We love coming here every summer and have now gone out on the water 4 times with this great company! We've been on other dolphin watching boats and none can compare with the Cape May Whale Watcher! The knowledge of the sea life and history of the area that the captain explains during the tour keeps you engaged the entire trip and makes for a great tour!! Oh and the dolphins !!! We've see a ton of dolphins on our trips and we've even seen whales twice!!! The first time we saw the whales come up for air and spouts of water bursting into the air and just this weekend we saw one of two spotted whales raising his tail out of the water and slapping the surface !! What an experience! If you're visiting the Wildwood or Cape May area this is a must do!! Enjoy :-)

Me and my dog Shadow went to Cape May Whale Watch today(11/02/2013). Beautiful weather. Saw groups of dolphins but no whales. 3-hour-trip was fun. The crew was very friendly. Pet friendly ship <-- I love it.

Been on the boat a few times and we enjoy it. Great to go out in the ocean and see wildlife and not have to go on a fishing boat and empty our oceans. Staff is friendly and seems like they are looking to make our experience a memorable one.

Cow nosed Rays are an exciting treat when found on our 1:00 PM Whale and Dolphin Watch.
