Dolphin Watch

You’ve got to choose this dolphin watch cruise!!! You will not be disappointed! The tour guides were really funny and extremely knowledgeable. We saw over 150 dolphins and learned a lot about the area…I would go on this cruise again in a heartbeat!

Pirate Cruise

They work hard and put on a great show for young and old. Fun and clean boat with a cute pirate story. It was our first time and my kids were 7 and 9. Thought this was the best trip ever!

Highly recommend it as a daily adventure.

Whale Watch

As a South Jersey native, this is one of my favorite whale watch companies! I recently went on a pelagic trip in the fall and we were able to see so many different species, including humpback whales! It was an amazing day, and everyone on the trip was so friendly.

Fishing Charter

These are great people running the fishing boat. I have two boys 8 and 5. The crew took care of them, and helped us out throughout the whole day.

We had a lot of fun.. if you are looking for a boat to go fishing on.. stop looking these are the guys you want.
