Dolphin Speedboat Tours
Silver Bullet Tours
Ever wished you could experience the thrill of a professional racecar driver accelerating out of a corner? The Silver Bullet can give you this thrill and more as it speeds up and down the Wildwoods oceanfront looking for our finned friends.
Legally insane fun.
On the Silver Bullet, you won't have to wait in long lines, because you'll never have to get off the boat to experience all this family fun! The Silver Bullet's twin Volvo Penta turbo-charged diesel engines will show you the Wildwoods in a truly one-of-a-kind fashion.
And nothing puts a stop to the hard-charging raw speed of the Silver Bullet like the daily spotting of our dolphin friends! Our captain will expertly maneuver you to our marine mammal friends' favorite fishing spot. Your family will have the time of their lives watching the dolphins glide and cavort alongside the Silver Bullet. You'll also see many types of marine life and pelagic birds along the way.
Of course, there's nothing like a Silver Bullet tan, so be sure to pack the sunscreen. Wear casual clothes or bathing suits, as the spray will cool and refresh you. So hustle on down for some legally insane fun over the wild blue yonder aboard a speeding bullet.

How would you describe a Silver Bullet speedboat ride?
Our 90 min trips are best described as part scenic, part amusement, FUN for all ages. We offer 4 Tours daily which all are different in nature. All Tours are fast and some are a little more WET then others. During your trip, your fun and knowledgeable boat Captain and crew will slow things down to inform you on geological and historical points of interest, point out indigenous wildlife and provide extraordinary photo opportunities with our Atlantic Bottlenose Finned Friends. But hold on to your hats because he'll be back on the throttle again! The 9am Early Bird, 11:30am and 2pm tours include the Wildwoods Famous FLUME. The BULLET is a WET ride and you may experience anything from a light saltwater spray to a shirt-wringing, towel buying SPLASH. It’s a good idea to wear casual clothing and footwear that can get wet. Ponchos are also available for purchase aboard.
For those Folks looking to stay DRY-ish or with young children, our 4:30 Happy Hour Tour is for you. This 4:30 tour is informative and exhilarating; suitable for the entire family. Be prepared to take in the majestic scenery, learn a little about the wild and scenic Jersey Cape all while looking for Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins and enjoying our Discounted drink specials.
