This was our first experience here, we loved it! The captain and crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was very clean, food and beverages were available, and they have FREE PARKING! We will definitely be back!

This trip was in the Delaware Bay and not the Ocean. We hardly saw any dolphin, or much of anything else for that matter. Total waste of time and money. Very disappointed.

This trip went out through the bay at the bottom of the bridge in Cape May and followed the canal out to the ocean. You could see the shoreline of Cape May around to Wildwood Crest and back again. The views are amazing!
