About Starfish Boats
Starfish Boats first set sail from Sea Isle City during the 1950s. Its first vessel was a big blue-and-white vessel called the Starfish, and though the fleet's expanded, all its boats have a classic charm. Today, veteran captains Bob Rush, Jr., and Mike Weigle invite first-time anglers and seasoned fishermen alike to join them during several different trips. The two captains lead four- and eight-hour fishing excursions, as well as dolphin-watching adventures each week. Trips are also available at night, when it's easy to find fish sleeping in their beds.
