Multiple whales, warm cabin when needed, friendly crew and a beautiful sunset return.
13:24 25 Nov 22
We've been here twice and each experience was amazing! I'd highly recommend this to anyone, with or without kids. It's an experience of a lifetime!
01:14 24 Nov 22
It was a picture perfect day ! The Whale was performing for us it seemed as the sun began o set , The colors were spectacular . Can’t say enough about the top notch friendly staff . Will definitely be back
11:59 22 Nov 22
What a wonderful family activity to do together especially since my daughter loves whales. It was absolutely magical to see them this close up.
00:59 21 Nov 22
I only signed up the day before as the remaining trips I could not make. I'm glad I did. I only managed to get a picture of one fin but I'm a birder, so I was happy to get two new lifers.

We had an awesome time whale watching with Jersey Shore Whale Watching Tours in Belmar. They were great with being informative, crew was friendly and they knew where the whales liked to travel to. The heated cabin was spacious. Once we were close to the whale, the boat slowed down and they told us where exactly to look. We got to see a fin whale and a gorgeous sunset as we headed back to Belmar Marina. Overall, a great experience and we highly recommend it for couples and families!

Great trip! Captain preserved to find the whales! Pods of three together- just beautiful. Simply majestic
17:54 18 Nov 22
Never buy a vip tickets, they change the boats as they please and it’s no vip seats. When I tried to get my money back they refused and propose me a tickets for a next season, like I am going to repeat this nonsense. Very unprofessional customer service. Waist of A LOT of money
13:53 16 Nov 22
Our November 10, 2022 whale watching experience was just awesome. It exceeded our expectations and everyone had a fantastic time seeing many glorious whales. Thank you for such a wonderful day!
16:03 12 Nov 22
Been out twice in a week and will definitely go back. Bill is a great host. They whales are there. Had a fabulous time. Just go.
01:39 12 Nov 22
Great time!! Was a day worth spending! Perfect weather and the whales did not disappoint. You can never get tired of whale watching and the captain and crew made sure you had an awesome experience. Thank you!! We will be back again and tell our friends!!
00:52 12 Nov 22
Beautiful day, we got to see two different humpbacks. There was a problem opening the bridge to get out to open water (not their fault) which delayed the start but they more than made up for it by staying out later and giving us a great chance to see more of the whales.
17:54 11 Nov 22
Wonder day whale watching with my 2 grandkids! Saw 3 different whales multiple times and the gave a great show! The crew was great very knowledgeable. Boat was clean and had a great indoor space. I’m going to make this a yearly trip 🐳
03:54 11 Nov 22
We had a great trip. Our captain made sure to position the boat for the best views of the whales. Linda made sure everyone onboard knew where to look and shared fun facts about the whales. She was such a great guide and super friendly! The kids loved spotting the whales and shouting it out to her. Bill made sure we got the best photos and posted his great shots online. We had a spectacular view of several whales and a beautiful sunset as a bonus. The boat was clean and not crowded so everyone was very comfortable and able to walk around to see the whales on either side of the boat. We would recommend this trip and hope to visit again next season!
00:46 11 Nov 22
This was our second trip this year. The sightings were plentiful and close. Staff is very friendly and informative. We don’t hesitate to bring friends and family from out of town who are never disappointed.
13:55 09 Nov 22
Beautiful sunset cruise, friendly crew, marvelous time! Myself and my teenagers loved our unusually balmy November afternoon and evening ❤️
18:00 08 Nov 22
Great day with a professionally run company. Despite that we did not see a whale the company immediately sentOut an email saying you have earned a free trip!
16:25 08 Nov 22
We had an awesome trip five whales three hung around for a long time we would definitely do it again
15:48 08 Nov 22
This was my 2nd time on JS Whale Watching tour and it was great! After a bit of a trek from Belmar to Seaside we were rewarded with 3 whales together circling around the boat. They spouted, floated and dove showing off their tails to us. It was a beautiful date and my family and I really enjoyed it. 🐳
00:49 07 Nov 22
Had a great time on the Golden Eagle with Captain Bill and his crew! Highly recommend.
20:48 06 Nov 22
We saw 5 humpback whales! The Captain was very patient and thoughtful and kept the boat as close as possible to the whales and followed them very quickly as they traveled.
20:34 06 Nov 22
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! It took a while to get there, but when we finally did . . . WOW! Did we see whales! The trio put on a fantastic show for an hour, circling the boat over and over so that everyone got a really good look. They were really showing off. It is truly a matter of luck, and we had the luck of the Irish. Good weather, great boat and crew.
17:53 06 Nov 22
The trip was the best! Bill and the crew went out of their way for us. I highly recommend this whale watch!
16:56 06 Nov 22
While the ocean was a little rough, the beautiful sunshine made our trip nice. The whales impressed us. 5 of them together!! Made for a memorable trip!!
00:49 06 Nov 22
Was so much fun!! Got to see two whales tails come out of the water. I hope next time I am entire whale.
00:30 06 Nov 22
In the beginning it seemed to be some confusion and not well coordinated. We paid for reserved seats. After the initial experience and we were underway - everything was a lot better. After the fog lifted - Got to see a whale - see attached pics. The bad - couldn’t hear when they were speaking about the whales etc. on the boat communication system. Not sure if speakers were working or not in the front of the boat. Overall we had a great experience.
23:40 05 Nov 22
I brought my 3 year old daughter and she had so much fun on the boat and seeing the whales. In fact we were able to see 3 humpback whales. It was nice we got to bring our own snacks and drinks. They provided us with plenty of opportunities to see the whales and had a fun filled experience. Highly recommend going!
21:30 05 Nov 22
Despite the choppy waters we were rewarded with the amazing experience of seeing 3 whales!! The crew let us spend so much time checking them out and the whales did the same! Looking forward to coming back again next year!
21:30 05 Nov 22
Had a great time! We were lucky enough to see a group of 3 whales. Staff were friendly.
21:30 05 Nov 22
Awesome experience ! Saw 3 huge whales all next to eachother . Wales were hanging out right by our boat . Highly recommend you do it . Bring your drinks and snacks .
21:22 05 Nov 22
Saw 3 whales!
21:16 05 Nov 22
Love that we have always saw whales each time.
21:16 05 Nov 22
It’s always a great trip with this group. We saw four whales swimming together.
23:41 04 Nov 22
My wife and I LOVED the whale watching trip. 3 hours of relaxation and were lucky enough to see a few whales. Highly recommend!
03:12 28 Oct 22
So much more than expected!! Danielle did an amazing job narrating our trip and teaching us about so many different sea animals. We saw a calf and it’s mother and hung out observing themfor about an hour. GREAT TRIP!
01:18 27 Oct 22
The whale watch was awesome! This was my and my fiancés first whale watch and we weren’t sure what to expect but we have heard amazing things. Glad we took the chance. Worth every penny. We saw so many pods of dolphins and we saw a mother feeding with her calf. The crew was friendly and Danielle, a whale researcher, was super informative. We learned a lot today and we’re mesmerized by the trip. We will definitely be back!!

Great crew! We had a beautiful day and we were able to see 2 whales several times!!! We were visiting from Ohio for a family wedding!
00:21 24 Oct 22
The experience was something I will never forget. We saw a humpback Whale and followed it at a distance so to be safe. The crew was great and made sure to let us know where it was at all time so we were able to view its moves ...also gave us great information about whales.I would recommend this trip.
00:09 24 Oct 22
23:52 23 Oct 22
Took my daughter and granddaughter who just turned 5. We all had an amazing time. Saw at least 2 whales 🐋 . I say at least two because we saw them so often not sure if it was the same two. Everyone on the boat was helpful and knowledgeable. Truly made it a special day for all of us. Definitely recommend.
23:39 23 Oct 22
Great experience. Boat is very clean. Crew very professional. Naturalist on board had a lot to teach us about these amazing creatures.
14:48 23 Oct 22
Fun 12hr pelagic trip out of Belmar. Unfortunately the birds and mammals weren't very cooperative but I'm happy that someone is getting pelagics going out of Monmouth county again
14:11 18 Oct 22
Really great experience we saw around 10 humpback whales breach and it was magical. Dress warm a little cold and misty on the waters!

Great experience. Saw pods of dolphins and a very playful humpback whale.
23:39 17 Oct 22
I saw two whales!
02:49 17 Oct 22
Very enjoyable trip overall, saw whale breaching several times....
23:54 16 Oct 22
My wife and I chose to celebrate our 30th anniversary with a whale watch trip since it was something we had done on our honeymoon. The experience was excellent! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the captain even gave us some extra time to spot more whales and dolphins. One of many reasons to love the Jersey Shore!
23:45 16 Oct 22
We were lucky enough to see two whales and several dolphins while out on a Saturday afternoon. Saw several full breaches, flipper slapping, and a tail as the whale dove. Lots of great information was shared throughout the trip. Was able to choose to be on deck or inside and move around the boat. Fun way to spend an afternoon. Easy to purchase tickets online. Had a great experience overall!
23:42 16 Oct 22
Had a great experience today with Jersey Shore Whale Watch. The guide was very knowledgeable & interesting and the captain turned the boat so everyone, from every seat, could see the whales. Highly recommend.
23:41 16 Oct 22
Amazing experience and very educational!We stay in the ocean extra time chasing the whales farther south of Belmar!
23:40 16 Oct 22
Wonderful, Amazing, breathtaking highly recommend! We saw so many whales! Some dolphins! But the whales were jumping and slapping it was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see! We weren’t even out there that far and we saw our 1st whale! I did put we waited but that’s on us we arrived early! There was so much whale activity I couldn’t even get good pics! They made sure to turn the boat so everyone could see. Just a great time.
23:35 16 Oct 22
Had a great time with Jersey Shore Whale watching. The crew made every effort to find whales and we saw 2
21:12 14 Oct 22
Loved every minute of the whale watch. I was able to capture a photo of everything I wanted to see. Lunge feeding, tail, rainbow and so much more. I will definitely book again.
20:43 14 Oct 22
Wonderful trip and saw 3 humpback whales! The captain did a great job positioning the boat, so all could see! The naturalist was very informative!
23:41 12 Oct 22
Beautiful sunny fall day! This whale watching trip hosted by friendly, welcoming, outgoing, and helpful staff! Accommodations were clean and neat. Best of all amazing hump back whales were seen as promised ! Great photo opportunities as well as excellent educational experience. Loved this trip !
12:59 12 Oct 22
An awesome day! Saw three whales and lots of whale tails from those three whales. The naturalist was very knowledgeable. All the staff on the boat were highly attentive and very nice. I really recommend going!!
16:36 11 Oct 22
Lots of whales out there!
12:26 11 Oct 22
My granddaughter, friend and I had a wonderful experience on the Royal Miss Belmar. The naturalist who was announcing the whale sightings to us was very knowledgeable. We saw at least 5 different whales feeding not far from the harbor. I was also able to capture some goid pictures with my phone. I would recommend this trip to my friends and hope to return again myself.
05:59 11 Oct 22
I went with my family, which included my adult son who uses a wheelchair. Crew was extremely helpful in getting him on/off the boat and helping us to our reserved seats which were in the front of the boat. We were very late (got stuck in traffic), we ran to the boat and we were the last to board, so because of this, other guests had to move so I could get through with the wheelchair (my sincerest thanks to those individuals for their patience and understanding). Next time (and there will definitely be a next time!!!), we will stay at the back of the boat and whale watch from there. From a wheelchair perspective I feel it would be more convenient. The captain makes sure everyone on all sides of the boat gets a chance to view the whale activity, so even the back of the boat will be a good viewing spot. We actually saw 3 whales and 2 pods of dolphins. The naturalist was very knowledgeable and I could hear every word she said, great sound system. The boat was clean and the crew was so very nice! Overall it was a great experience and we will be back!!!
23:34 10 Oct 22
The tour was excellent. Boat and crew were very friendly and professional, and we saw 4 different whales, plus a number of sightings.
16:27 10 Oct 22
We had a fabulous time on our whale watch. The boat was not crowded so you could easily move about to see the whales. It was a beautiful sunny day and we watched whales for most of the time we were out. We will definitely be back to do it again.
23:46 09 Oct 22
We had a wonderful experience with Jersey Shore Whale Watch! The staff was pleasant, efficient, & very interested in providing everyone a great time. We saw several humpback whales and loved the very impressive commentary by the onboard naturalist. I highly recommend this company!
23:33 09 Oct 22
I had a great experience. Time goes by so fast! They made sure we had a whale watching experience!
23:33 09 Oct 22
Awesome experience ! My family loved it. Captain and crew were informative and did their best making extra efforts for all to get to see the whales. It was beautiful. We’ll be back.
23:45 08 Oct 22
The tour was great. We got to see 3-4 different young humpback whales and the announcer was very knowledgeable on the species. We also saw a couple pods of bottlenose dolphins which was again accompanied by a good amount of info. The captain decided not to spend too much time around each whale so as not to bother them, and this proved to be fruitful because the last whale we saw lunged out of the water multiple times and proved amazing for photo opportunities! Would recommend.
22:13 08 Oct 22
Saw tons of humpback whales breach feeding and dolphin pods!
19:41 08 Oct 22
Wonderful lovely crew, great experience overall seeing the whales!
00:13 08 Oct 22
Don’t put this trip off like I did.. Great crew and great group of people.. beautiful sunny day and we saw our first whale spout in less than 30 minutes. The whales we saw keep surfacing, diving and tail slapping.. I’ll probably go back before the season is over…. Thanks to the captain and crew. PS a big shout out to the PHD student from Rutgers who was the onboard marine biologist….Lance Morrow, Summit, NJ
01:02 28 Sep 22
My kids and I and an amazing time on this trip! We got to see two humpback whales while they were feeding. No breaching but still so awesome to see! The boat was clean & comfortable and the staff was friendly & very knowledgeable! Loved learning so much about the humpback whales and other marine mammals! I will defined be back again!!
00:43 28 Sep 22
Loved this tour! Actually saw two humpback whales...one feeding. Saw lots of bottlenose dolphins. Crew was super informative. Boat was very clean. You'll have a great time!!
23:42 27 Sep 22
We bought the vip box as this was something I was cking off my bucket list. We did see 2 whales the trip was amazing
01:58 27 Sep 22
Company is communicative, crew is friendly and professional, naturalist is knowledgeable and well-spoken. Combined, this makes every trip an excellent experience no matter what you see. Though the whale sightings are premium as well!
00:55 27 Sep 22
It was my second time on the whale watching tour ! We saw 3 whales the staff and the Naturalist were excellent! Highly recommend!
00:14 27 Sep 22
Where are those bench seats which cover the life jackets ? It was so bumpy on the way back and we have to sit on the edge for an hour !
01:18 26 Sep 22
Absolute amazing experience! We traveled over an hour for this and I would highly recommend to all!!! =)
00:43 26 Sep 22
This trip was great. Exceptional team.
22:07 25 Sep 22
We had a great time on the Jersey Shore Whale Watch! We saw a few humpback whales and a minke whale. The staff were great, particularly naturalist Trish and Captain Alan.
22:03 25 Sep 22
Wonderful trip, I make sure to go on this whale watching trip every year. It is so enjoyable and I’ve seen whales each time. The new naturalist, Trish, is terrific and shared very good information about the whales. Highly recommend!
12:56 25 Sep 22
The trip surpassed all our expectations! The crew took time to insure we had many opportunities! Thanks!!
00:31 25 Sep 22
It was the most wonderful experience ever. We got to see 2 humpback and 1 minke whales. Such beautiful creatures, we’ll be back for sure!
16:29 23 Sep 22
Great staff! Great boat ride! Saw one whale and they even stayed extra long to follow it…very cool. Learned a lot too!
00:28 23 Sep 22
Absolutely Awesome trip.. staff is incredible. Boat is clean & comfortable. Plenty of parking near the marina and close proximity to restaurants and bars in the area to explore before or after your trip. Love the passion and excitement the captain & crew share with their passengers. Makes for a great little day trip. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go again !
23:39 21 Sep 22
Great 3 hour trip and they made sure we experienced the whales up close many times.
23:38 21 Sep 22
We had a great time with Jersey Shore Whale Watching Tours. The naturalist was very informative. The captain was adept at following the whales we found. And, we got to see 3 whales. The boat was clean and comfortable.
23:41 20 Sep 22
There wasn’t any sign indicating where the whale watch boat was at the marina. I had to ask when I saw a line. We did see whales and rays. It was quite a show. The whales flapped their fins and showed their tails and were quite close to the boat. It was a good experience. I do think that parents of young children should be warned that it can be quite rough on the water and the deck chairs are not secure. They were moving all over the place.
01:04 20 Sep 22
Lots of little kids who probably were too young and definitely cried and ruined some aspects of a beautiful day. Maybe limit it to age 10+? Also the chairs in the center of the top deck slide around when the boat tilts. Might be a good idea to fix them in place somehow. Overall an awesome day. Good naturalist and solid captain. Whales' participation didn't hurt.
21:45 19 Sep 22
Had a wonderful time! Very informative. So excited to see a whale up close! Great day out!
