Great crew and experience!

This was my mom's first time parasailing and the boat crew was awesome! The deck hand managed to get some priceless photos of her reaction! I would definitely use the again. Also... read more

We went on the Sunset Cruise with Pelican Adventures to celebrate my best friends birthday. We honestly had the time of our lives. There was salsa dancing, regular dancing, food and an open bar. There was also an area on the catamaran where you could lay on a net with the ocean underneath you. Everyone on the boat was from... More

Had a blast deep sea fishing. Fun and price was perfect! Good crew and good times. Waves were a bit choppy but the captain did all he could to make the trip memorable. Definitely coming back next year!

We decided to take our 2 vacationing families out for a little Deep Sea Fishing aboard the Vera Marie Party Boat and we had the best time. Capitan Steve was so great with the kids and at finding the fish. We also saw more dolphins that I have ever seen in my life. They were loving the fish we were... More

We actually used them twice. One time was out first family snorkeling. It was absolutely amazing. Our captian was great and very helpful. Then we parasailed with them. Again, wonderful experience. I have parasailed before and this was the smoothest landing ever. Great fun. We will definitely use them next time we're in Destin.

Went out on the Anticipation with high hopes that it would be a great day. Unfortunately, our captain was very inexperienced at what he was doing and the end result was a very uneventful trip out. We've went out on this boat 3 different times now and each time with a different crew. This crew to us was the worst... More

Group of twenty-somethings that didn't know what to expect(skeptical due to bad reviews) had an amazing time out on the water with Pelican Adventures party boat fishing crew. Every crew members main concerns were keeping us safe & catching fish. We caught over 30 fish!! There was never a dull moment. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a budget... More

The crew were all very friendly and chatted with us the whole time. We saw Dolphins from the boat and stingrays, jellyfish, and sharks from up in the air. The rides are each about 10 minutes and they are a lot of fun. There was a buy one get one 50% off special when we went too.

This was my mom's first time parasailing and the boat crew was awesome! The deck hand managed to get some priceless photos of her reaction! I would definitely use the again. Also, they offer a host of other rentals and activities from snorkeling to pontoon boats!

We booked with Pelican Adventures because of the bogo pricing. The parasailing was amazing! Having been on an excursion with another company the day before I was disappointed with the friendliness and lack of personality of the captain. He was kinda rude to the other worker on the boat. You could tell there was a little tension between them. But... More
