Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with today’s Groupon to Starlight Fleet in Wildwood Crest. Choose between the following options:
For $22, you get a four-hour fishing trip for one person (a $43 total value).
For $42, you get a four-hour fishing trip for two people (an $86 total value).
Each trip includes:
- Admission onto boat for four hours (a $40 value per person)
- Rod and reel (a $3 value per person)
Fisherpeople can clamber aboard Starlight Fleet’s large charter boats and steer them straight toward schools of hungry sea creatures, utilizing the rods and reels provided alongside complimentary bait, fish bags, and instructions. Floating vessels boast a large, comfortable skydeck and men’s and women’s bathrooms in which to spray on the algae-scented perfume that attracts most fish. Fishing trips are seasonal, and they’re currently not in session. Trips will begin again on May 1, 2012, and will depart daily at 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 7 p.m.
The Starlight Fleet
The ships that comprise The 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.
