Great spot!
May 2021 • Family
The family loved this. The kids and my husband were skeptical beforehand, but everyone was pleasantly surprised afterwards. We did a private tour on the weekend and you get to feed the alpacas. It’s all free. They have a donation box. The whole thing takes 30 minutes tops; we asked a lot of questions, so I could see it only taking 15 minutes if you’re not a curious crowd. They have a little shop filled with alpaca made items (clothing, blankets, trinkets, etc.) that you can go in after the tour.

Thank you so much for your review! :) Actually, you enjoyed a Saturday Public Tour, not our Private Tour. But honestly, a lot of people say it feels like a private tour, since it's just your group with your own tour guide. It makes us especially happy to know that your husband and kids ended up enjoying the experience! The alpacas tend to win over everyone with their cute faces and quirky personalities! Hope to see you again in the future . . .

Great Experience!!!
May 2021
On a recent getaway to Cape May, my husband and I had the wonderful treat of having a private tour at Jersey Shore Alpacas. Jim and Tish have created an amazing experience with their alpacas and it was definitely the highlight of our trip.

Jim was our tour guide that morning. He spent some time with us outside the fenced areas to give us the history of the farm and some of the alpacas. He did an excellent job of answering our questions and sharing his knowledge of alpacas. We first met Sebastian (see photo below) and then we were introduced to the rest of the "boys". Jim provided plenty of tips on how to feed them carrots or to take a break if we needed it. Once we were finished with about half the carrots we met the "girls". The entire tour was very relaxed and we never felt rushed or that we were asking too many quesitons. We got to know the alpacas by name and their invididual personalities. It was so much fun!

Alpacas- don’t miss this!!
May 2021 • Family
Alpacas...didn’t know much about these beautiful animals but wanted to learn more. Decided that a private tour with my kids and grandkids would be the perfect way to learn more...and it was - and so much more!
There’s a reason why this place is booked and has waiting lists. Tish and her husband have created a warm and welcoming experience when it comes to their alpaca farm and we were so glad to have had experienced it first hand.
Tish is a phenomenal hostess...from the front door greeting to getting us set up before going into the pens, Tish provides you with everything needed for a great experience. She answers your questions, provides assurance as you move through the experience, doesn’t rush you and above all, knows and loves her herd. These animals are beautiful and with personalities all their own. Tish provides you with options to feed, if needed.
Feeding the animals was the absolute best...an unforgettable experience...and my 7 year old granddaughter went from a little nervous to 100% involved by the end! This was amazing to see!!
Tish has a small gift shop that is the last stop of the tour- so adorable and filled with awesome items. Highly recommend the alpaca ornaments- reasonably priced and a great reminder of the visit.

We look forward to visiting once again- don’t miss this unique and memorable experience!

Wow! Thank you so much for all the kind words about us and our farm! :) We are so grateful to you for taking the time to write such a detailed review - it really helps potential visitors understand what they will experience. I'm just so happy that your granddaughter could "grow" in her comfort level with the alpacas. It's always a goal (and very rewarding) for us to help anyone who is nervous (child or adult) become more comfortable with the alpacas. It was wonderful to see that happen for her! Again, thank you so much for your recommendation of our farm here on TripAdvisor . . . it means so much to us. Hope to see you again in the future!

Alpaca Fun!
Apr 2021 • Family
I went to Jersey Shore Alpacas when my girlfriend and I visited Cape May for my 30th birthday weekend this April. I saw it on tripadvisor and thought it would be a fun activity to do with my girlfriend and our friends. It was so much fun. Tish was a wonderful guide and you can truly see how much her and her husband care about each alpaca. The tour is very personal and Tish made it a great and fun experience for all of us. The alpacas were all so cute and loved all the attention we gave them. If you are in the Cape May area on vacation, this is a must do attraction! Also, the little gift store that Tish has in her house is also great! I even bought an alpaca beanie that I will be sure to wear all the time when it gets cold out! Definitely a great experience and so much fun

Wonderful Alpaca Experience
Apr 2021
This was an incredible experience! Tish was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her Alpacas, and her husband even knew all of their birthday's. The set up and process that was followed was very well thought out and made it an easy to enjoy time. The Alpacas themselves were so friendly and it was so fun to get to know each of their personalities. It was a perfect day and very enjoyable. We can't wait to go back again to see them!

Fun and Informational!
Apr 2021
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our private tour at Jersey Shore Alpacas on Monday. The animals were friendly and healthy, and it was a lot of fun to feed them loads of carrots! Tish, the owner, was very knowledgeable and told us so much we did not know about Alpacas. I also appreciated that the visit was not rushed at all!

Such a worthwhile way to spend a few hours!
Dec 2020
We were so impressed when we had a private audience with over a dozen alpacas! The owner gave us a brief tutorial on how to behave around the males and females, stuffed hundreds of carrot sticks in the aprons were were supplied with, and off we went! The alpacas were gentle and ate right out of our hands. Such a fun experience!

We are so happy that you enjoyed your private tour! It is amazing how quickly the alpacas eat all those carrot sticks (not quite a hundred, but certainly a lot!) Thanks so much for sharing your review with future TripAdivsor visitors . . . we really appreciate it!

Fun time with the Alpacas!
Apr 2021
My wife has always wanted to see an Alpaca in person. She thinks they are cute, in a goofy sort of way. Since we were staying in Cape May this weekend, a visit to Jersey Shore Alpacas was a must. The owners do a great job of following all of the Covid protocols and we felt very comfortable during the tour. Jim, one of the owners & our tour guide for the afternoon, gave us a ton of information about the animals. The tour lasted about 45 minutes. Feeding them was a blast. If you are worried about them spitting, don't...lol. They are only spitting to show their annoyance at one of the other Alpacas for getting too close to them. Stay alert. If you see them starting to crowd toward the fence to get the treat in your hand, that is when they may spit. Try to keep them separated as best you can. Put a carrot in each of your hands and hold them apart so you can feed two at a time. There was no admission charge for the tour. There is a donation box for voluntary contributions by the Alpacas and inside the gift shop. As you can imagine running a farm for 15 or 16 animals is expensive, so make sure you leave a contribution. This is a popular attraction, so book early. We tried a week ahead of time, but all the slots were filled. My wife checked their website about a day before we arrived in Cape May just in case there was a cancellation and we got lucky. Have a great time, we did!

I absolutely LOVE your advice about feeding the alpacas! It's so perfect, you could be a tour guide! LOL! Thank you so much for explaining how to "not get spit at," as well as the other details about your Saturday Public Tour. We are delighted that you and your wife had such a good time! Also, you gave great advice about booking early and checking the Public Tour page for cancellations. Thank you so much for taking the time and thought in sharing this informative review for other future visitors! Jim and I really appreciate it!

Great Experience!
Apr 2021 • Family
Took the private tour with my wife and 2 daughters (8 & 6) last Thursday. It was an amazing experience and hands down the highlight of our trip. Tish was excellent at explaining everything to my daughters and always made sure they felt safe and comfortable with the animals. The private tour was well organized and the kids had plenty of time to ask questions and feed the Alpacas. I would highly recommend.
