Staff was friendly and made efforts to keep guests interested in what was to be seen (No whales, but you can’t rely on wild whales to show up) on shore and in the water. Complimentary snacks to start the trip were welcome and tasty. We didn’t use onboard restrooms, but both the upper and lower decks of the boat were clean and in good shape. The lower deck’s indoor section provided shade if needed.

It was a great time. We saw many dolphins. We saw baby stingrays. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any whales. The boat was clean and the people very nice and knowledgeable.

It was one of the best experiences. The staff was good, boat was clean and has sanitizers installed. There were not a lot many people on the boat as well due to covid. As far as the trip goes, we were lucky to encounter humbpack whale breach. No one was in a hurry to go back. It was a wounderful experience

While the cruise was relaxing and we did see some dolphins, as far as social distancing was concerned they failed to ensure this. There we too many people on the upper deck for sure therefore, which kids being kids and running around, the ability to maintain any distance from anyone was hard. The complimentary pizza and hot dogs was a nice touch and the guide provided interesting information alo

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.
