On all regularly scheduled marine mammal trips, we guarantee marine mammal sightings. In the event that marine mammals are not sighted, a free pass will be issued for another trip. Marine Mammals include whales or dolphins or porpoise, all members of the order Cetacean. The guarantee only applies to marine mammal watching trips. Special events are not part of our regularly scheduled trips. No refunds will be offered.
Tickets purchased and reservations made for the Cape May Whale Watcher are held up until 30 minutes prior to departure. After the 30 minute threshold, pre-purchased tickets may be automatically rescheduled for a future trip if capacity is reached.
