Whale watchers count themselves lucky if they see a blue whale breach or put a peace flower in a killer whale's blowhole. See whales, not war, with this Groupon.

The Atlantic Star carries groups of tourists to whale- and dolphin-watching hot spots off Cape May. A marine biologist expounds on the animals from the boat's large sun deck as passengers chow down on snacks from the onboard galley. Should passengers not catch a glimpse of dolphins or whales, their next trip is free. See the calendar for scheduling and availability.
Kids 6 and under are admitted at no charge when accompanied by a paying adult.
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.
