Went on a morning fishing trip at the end of June. The boat had way too many people on it (think the mate said there was 89 on board). They definitely need to limit the amount of people on a trip. You could only drop your line straight down and then most of the time it would get tangled with the people next to you. $60 to catch the line of the person to the right or left of you is no fun. We didn’t catch anything. Kept moving from spot to spot, and then went back in. The mates were very friendly and helpful (especially with untangling people’s lines). Most in our party agreed that this was a waste of time and money due to the amount of people on board and the cramped fishing conditions.

My daughter and I recently took a Dolphin Watching tour and had so much fun. The crew was knowledgeable and fun, everyone wore their masks and their was plenty of room to social distance comfortably. The boat was clean and safe and the ticket included complimentary refreshments. We saw dauphins as soon as the trip started and the captain made sure to circle around the area so that everyone had a chance to see. I would definitely recommend, we are long time vacationers at Wildwood but this was our first dauphin watching tour.

We traveled with two 15 year old girls and a 9 year old boy. The ride overall was two hours. We sat up top - seating is painted steel. The narrator was good - we went around the shore of cape may. We were kind of bored overall, but towards the very end some dolphins were spotted a few times, so that made the trip more worth it. They didn’t seem to be controlling capacity or masks or social distancing at all. The bar served pre mixed pina coladas and strawberry daiquiris you would buy at the grocery store. Out of straws.

My 12 year old son and booked this boat after our first choice had engine problems and cancelled the day before our trip. So happy we got on this trip. My son's hook wasn't in the water 5 minutes and he had already pulled in two croakers. That was just the beginning. We ended up putting on a fishing derby with a total of 68 fish caught between the two of us. What an afternoon. Captain Ernie and the crew were so awesome and helpful. Would absolutely book this boat again if we are in the area again.

Unfortunately it started to rain when we went on board and I was dreading it. Well it was great!! The rain was on and off. They have a person announcing interesting facts and funny tidbits. He was amazing and then played fun music and we were dancing. We saw a ton of dolphins during the sunset cruise. It was really a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

Brought a groupon deal for 4 hours fishing on the back bay. The crew was friendly and placed us on the fish. landed a number of small sea bass but we had to release due to size. Over all a fun day with the family

The Starlight Fleet has to be one of the best boat cruises we have been on. The history from the captain and the animal facts from the marine biologist were just fantastic. And we saw so many dolphins! The dance party at the end of the cruise was so much fun! I highly recommend!

Went on a sunset dolphin watch which included a swing by Cape May's Lobster House to the tune of YMCA. Stunning sunset and amazing view of St. Mary by the Sea retreat. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff.

We booked a dolphin tour for 8 adults and 5 kids. This was hands down worth EVERY penny paid. We saw lots of dolphins and a few birds. The narrator was so good with both the adults and kids. Had tons of interesting info as we sailed. Got to explore Cape May. The “touch” aquarium show at the end was such an added bonus. The crew was all SO friendly and a wonderful asset to the company. If considering this tour, do it, you won’t be disappointed.

This was the first fishing charter I’ve been on in wildwood and in a while as I still knew to fishing. I brought tickets for me and the girlfriend who never fished for 4 hours deep sea fishing.

The boat was easy to find and clean. I told the mate this is our first time. He was respectful took time to show us and answer questions we had. He made sure we had good time and that we were ok. When we caught something they came right away.

Unfortunately we caught fish we couldn’t keep. But I rather catch and have to release than not catch anything at all. Definitely best experience I’ve been on and will most certainly be back in few weeks.
