Crew was very knowledgeable and we saw both dolphins and a whale.

Clean up bathrooms and if possible make bathrooms bigger!

The Crew and Captain were very attentive and helpful.

Roug seas but a great time fishing.. The fish were jumping into the boat!! ;-)

We were blessed with wonderful weather. Although I'm a native New Jerseyan, we still learned some history of the shore area. We enjoyed the captain's commentary, which was balanced with historical information, facts about the dolphins and music. We got a chuckle out of driving past the Lobster House and blasting the song "YMCA" for their customers!

Starlight had some of the nicest young people serving us....very polite and very hardworking.

The assistance in untangling the lines.

The knowledge of the crew and their accommafating style.

The weather was perfect!!! Great day on the water. Five dollars for water was a steep price!
