What people are saying about Atlantic City

Everyone was extremely nice and welcoming. I came with my friend Meghan for a girls weekend and had a blast. The crew how took us out could see that I was nervous and did a great job trying to make me laugh and joke with me. When we finally got up in the air it was just very calm and beautiful. The only thing that I would change is for it to be longer. It feels like you are in the air for a few minutes then come back down.

Worth every penny! We have done this boat ride on the Pacific Ocean, but first time on the Atlantic Ocean. Captain was excellent as were his staff. We saw at least 100 dolphins and no matter what side of boat you were on, he turned the boat around so everyone saw everything equally. It was a beautiful day too make it even better!

Great experience! Saw a lot of dolphins and enjoyed drinks and the ride. The captain was very informative and knew a lot about the area and the dolphins and other marine life.

It was fun dolphins was promised to be seen and it was overall a great time

A great experience for adults and kids, my 13 year old loved it !!!
