However, if you're not an adrenaline junkie and you're looking for something that doesn't make you move over 100 miles per hour, then keep on reading.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to take a ride out into the open waters and do some serious fishing.

Personally, I'm not the world's biggest fisherman however this trip was an absolute blast.

This past weekend my mom and I hopped aboard the Miss Barnegat Light and took part in one of their chartered fishing trips.

Spending the day fishing was a blast; we were pulling fish in as quickly as we were casting out and the crew on board was amazing at making sure the bait stayed fresh.

Even the boat ride out was so memorable.

We saw dolphins off the side of the boat, got great views of the Barnegat Lighthouse, and saw some whales breaching the ocean.

If fishing isn't really your thing the Miss Barnegat Light also offers sunset cruises so you can get unforgettable views as the sun goes down for the day.

You can also enjoy marine biology tours and happy hour cruises on board the Miss Barnegat Light.

I was surprised at everything you could do, and a trip out on the Miss Barnegat Light was truly an unforgettable experience.
