What You'll Get
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 this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $22 for a four-hour fishing trip for one (a $43 value)
- $42 for a four-hour fishing trip for two (an $86 value)
- $82 for a four-hour fishing trip for four (a $172 value)<p>
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 sky deck and men’s and women’s bathrooms in which to spray on the algae-scented perfume that attracts most fish. Each guest will receive a rod and reel for the duration of the trip. Trips depart daily at 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 7 p.m. starting May 1.<p>
Buoyed by decades of experience, Starlight Fleet founder Captain Jim Cicchitti shepherds travelers into Atlantic pastures for deep-sea-fishing voyages, dinner cruises, and dolphin- and whale-watching excursions. Groups of 150 passengers boogie into Poseidon’s ballroom on ships known as Starlight, Twilight, Dark Star, and The Atlantic Star. Enclosed cabins, sundecks, air conditioning, surround-sound speakers, and storage space keep passengers comfortable, and sonar, radar, and GPS capabilities pamper robotic voyagers. Eyes drink in the sight of majestic mammals, and fingers dive into touch tanks as a marine biologist expounds on aquatic life during educational excursions. Reel-winders of all experience levels can opt for four-, six-, or eight-hour fishing trips, and the Sunset Buffet fuels dusky sojourns with shrimp scampi, burgers, and desserts.

About 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.
