I had never been deep sea fishing before and my wife booked me a trip with Pelican prior to us getting there. I was originally supposed to go on an afternoon charter but they moved everyone to mornings because the business was slowing down and the afternoon trips were not going out. The check in was easy the morning of.... More

Aweful. My dad & I took this as a second party boat charter during our week stay in destin. Chose it bc of the cheaper price point. Save your money or spend extra to go somewhere else. At the end staff said it was end of season so that why practically no fish were caught but two days before this... More

We had a small group booked on the Vera Marie, the boat was packed at 73 people but the crew kept everything together from tangled lines to "fish on" yells. The captain did his best to get us on fish but the fish were not cooperating. The boat was clean and well appointed. I would recommend this charter to others,... More

The day before this trip we took a party boat, we had a good time and caught some fish. We had the trip on Destiny planned for Friday but the deck hand's wife was ill so they changed us over to Good Times instead. I was hesitant but agreed and I am so glad we did. The captain Mike knew... More

My husband and I went parasailing for the first time and it was great. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The guys on the boat Anthony and Tony were funny and made you feel comfortable

7 hour trip...an hour of fishing. We rode around most of the time and we would fish with decent results but then the captain would take off again after about 15 min of fishing. Way too many people were on the boat which caused way too many tangle ups which also cut down fishing time. The crew was good but... More

While our boat captain was very nice, the lady who worked behind the desk was not. She was very rude to us and talked down to us. She was the first person we talked to which changed my mood as soon as we got there.

My teenage son and I fished two six hour trips this week on the Vera Marie. The captain and crew were the great! The boat each trip had about eighty people. The crew was spread pretty thin but worked hard the entire trip to meet each request. Captain Steve personally checked on the quests throughout the trip. First day fishing... More

This was our second party boat experience! Let's just say we should have gone back to the first one. The 6 hour trip turned into a 7 hour trip. We spent more time riding around on the boat then we did fishing. There were 5 of us in our group and we caught 2 fish (we caught at least 20... More
