Boats are like rich parents, in that they will float you for a few years while you drift around playing acoustic guitar and working on your coming of age novel. Live the dream with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options

As the sun melts into the horizon, the 100-foot Atlantic Star reflects Cape May Canal's roiling whitecaps as they adopt the setting star's molten oranges. Against idyllic vistas of Sunset Beach, passengers clink frosty libations as they admire Fisherman's Wharf, the Cape May Point lighthouse, and surfacing dolphins. As dance music and seagulls shouting "Free Bird" echo across the deck, guests enjoy a three-course buffet feast comprised of shrimp scampi, pulled pork, and sponge cake.
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.
