Great ride, pleasant staff. Did not see anything due to dense fog and so they distributed free return trip tickets!

Check in was smooth, safe and friendly. Crew was informative and friendly. The dolphins put on a full show for us. We were blessed to be in the company of a humpback whale for near 2 hrs of the trip. A bald eagle also graced us with his presence along with many notable birds and sea creatures.

The crew and guides were very knowledgeable. The boat was comfortable. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, we had very bad fog, and only saw one dolphin. We were given free tickets to return in the future.

About Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center

In 2012, after more than two decades studying marine mammals off the New Jersey coast, the founders of the Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center welcomed the American Star into port. The whale-watching vessel journeyed more than 8,700 nautical miles from Seward, Alaska to Cape May, allowing the opportunistic research team to expand its private-exploration and public-sightseeing operations.

Today, the Research Center’s captains and guides effectively welcome up to 150 passengers on the opportunistic research team, relaying the basics of wildlife scouting before boogying into Poseidon's ballroom to scope out dolphins, whales, and birds around the island of Cape May. An enclosed, climate-controlled cabin keeps passengers comfortable during misty weather, and multiple, spacious sundecks allow for up-close views of migrating whale pods. On-board sonar, radar, cameras, and GPS capabilities facilitate up-close, unobtrusive sightings of nature in action.
