Full description
Hop aboard in Wildwood Crest and cruise around Cape May Island on a wildlife sightseeing cruise. Treat yourself and your family to an educational and fun trip aboard the Atlantic Star to view the sea’s most intelligent mammals. Watch as your dolphin friends swim and play just a short distance from the boat as you make your way into the ocean's horizon. Each trip is led by an experienced marine biologist and educator. Get access to a "touch tank", so everyone can experience the marine life up close and personal. Learn about the ocean and its inhabitants with this hands-on experience. Along the way, your naturalist will point out seabirds, sea turtles, and other wildlife, as well as other interesting and historical sites. Hear about the wildlife around you from your experienced captain and naturalist, who are trained on responsible marine mammal viewing techniques by WhaleSENSE, an educational voluntary program. You can be sure the Atlantic Star will set the example for all other vessels on the water. Explore the 110-foot Atlantic Star, which holds up to 150 passengers and features state of the art technology, a large sun deck with seating on the upper deck, and amenities such as an enclosed cabin and separate restrooms for ladies and gentlemen.
