It was a lot of fun but we never saw dolphins or anything (oh, a few birds). But I still thought it was fun, one child with us, slept thru the whole ride.

it was a nice ride, we saw multiple pods of dolphins. my family was vacationing in wildwood crest so we decided to do the thundercat watch. ideally i would have liked for the trip to be slightly more informative since they advertise as marine biologists but over all it was a fun experience and i would bring family back again...

The entire staff was very friendly and informative. We saw dozens of dolphins, no exaggeration. At various points the dolphins followed the boat and jumped through the waves behind the boat. I highly recommend the tour, and the photo package which has phenomenal pictures and a video from various tours throughout the season..Enjoy!!

Captain John and Captain Al were great. Funny and welcoming. We saw tons of dolphins on our trip. They were jumping and playing in the water beside and behind our boat as we sped along. We will definitely do this again next time we come to Cape May.

This was a blast!!! And yes the dolphins do swim right with the boat. Amazing. Not just one or two but a hole lot of them !! They actually hung in there for a good while. I would defiantly do again, even with small kidos. Their pretty good on telling you a lot of different history on the way. Loved... More

We went on an 11am tour and saw lots of groups of dolphins. First we just saw them swimming around, and then we sped up and they were jumping in the wake and alongside the boat. The guide was super informative and made the whole trip very interesting!

This was our second time riding the Thundercat, shortly after Hermine came through. When we didn't see many dolphins off the beach in Wildwood, Captain John and Captain Al promptly took us down to Cape May where the Dolphins were "hiding out." Soon saw a bunch of them, following the boat and jumping in the wake. Wound up staying out... More

We saw dolphins most of the cruise, and a fabulous boat ride. Dolphins chasing the boat, and the tricks they were doing was priceless, its almost like they new what they needed to do when they saw the boat coming...well spent money....Captain Al and company were great, informative, entertaining. Great cruise all around. Unbeleivable time !!!
