Choose Between Two Options

  • $40 for a three-hour dolphin- and whale-watching cruise for two (up to an $80 value)
  • $75 for a three-hour dolphin- and whale-watching cruise for four (up to a $160 value)

During the three-hour tour, experienced captains ferry passengers into areas where whales breach and dolphins play for an intimate and exciting viewing experience. Onboard touch tanks allow guests to shake hands with sea creatures, and a knowledgeable guide keeps guests informed on historical sites as well as passing sea birds, turtles, and other creatures.

Starlight Fleet

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, American Star, 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.

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.
