Great trip on the ocean and saw lots of dolphins, stingrays and beautiful scenery of the NJ coast line. However, we did not see any whales. It was worth it though!

Spectacular trip, we were entertained by a humpback whale for almost an hour while he fed from schools of baitfish all around our boat! I’ve taken whale watching cruises from both coasts but this is the first time I ever got an experience like this!
