Groups of fishers climb aboard Starlight Fleet's large charter boats and steer toward schools of hungry sea creatures. Once situated, anglers use the provided rods and reels as well as complimentary bait, fish bags, and instructions. Each vessel boasts a large, comfortable sun deck and men's and women's bathrooms onboard. Trips depart daily at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Trips run on weekends only until May 17 and then daily after that. Beginning June 15, a 7 p.m. trip is also available that runs until the end of the season.
The ships that comprise Starlight Fleet's squadron of vessels each transport passengers across the waves on a variety of sea adventures. The Starlight ferries fisherman on four-hour excursions to hook sea bass, flounder, croakers and triggerfish, the captain using sonar, GPS, and a knowledge of the currents to identify prime fishing real estate. The Atlantic Star typically serves as a whale-watching vessel and is kitted out with a snack-filled galley and a touch tank filled with horseshoe crabs and other local sea life.
The company even boasts its very own pirate ship, The Dark Star, a custom-designed vessel built by Naval Architect Michael LeMole. It takes passengers on swashbuckling adventures during which they learn what a swash is and how to buckle it, as well as participate in treasure hunts and face painting.
The crew was as helpful as helpful can be...Basically, you just need to drop the line and reel back in, the fun part.David E., Yelp, 7/14/12
