Cape May, New Jersey is the perfect backdrop for all your special occasions and excursions. Whether you’re looking to host a wedding with a unique twist or want to set sail for a half day fishing excursion, our fleet is available for private charters.



The Cape May Whale Watcher, formerly the Spirit of Cape May, is a 110-foot long boat in our fleet with a capacity of 400 passengers. With a partially enclosed sky lounge and open-air dance floor, it is a unique venue for any occasion. There are two bars available, a galley for hot/cold food service, cushioned seating upstairs and downstairs, seating for up to 100 in an air conditioned and heated, carpeted cabin. A sound system is ready for narrating tours or providing tunes for your party. Finally, a sky lounge with interior seating will let your guests wrap up the night underneath the stars.

The Miss Chris boat is available for evening cruises, fishing excursions, offshore adventures, and customized trips. Two and three-hour evening cruises are available for as few as 10 and up to 140 passengers and are great for all types of events, from bachelor parties to anniversaries. This is a BYOB alternative to the Tiki- with Air Conditioning and Heating, padded seats, a large Upper Deck, a bar area, ice included! Our tours can keep you calm in the back bay or Delaware Bay and we can get you away from the flies and other native life that call the back bays that so many tiki cruises “enjoy.” Instead we show you the sunset and Cape May Point and hopefully dolphins and maybe even a near shore whale.


Fishing excursions are also available in 4, 6, and 8-hour increments. Half-day fishing group rates are also available, as well as custom trips and offshore adventures. Pricing starts at 20 people.
