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

We looked at a few other companies before deciding on Pelican Adventures, the buy one get on 1/2 off, was a definite draw. Booked online, easy peasy. You have to drive past the Harborwalk to find them, as they are down the road a little ways, but no big deal because you don't have to fight with the Harborwalk parking... More

We went fishing with my family on the Vera Marie worst experience ever. The most fishing I saw was the guys from the boat who are supposed to be helping you catching fish off the back of the boat while I untangled lines all day because they wasn't enough instruction and there were way to many people . I can... More

Our family booked a snorkel trip and it was a great time had by all! Everyone was pleased with the value of the trip. I would recommend pelican adventures over anyone else. They provided anything you could think of. The kids could borrow their nets and catch things which kept them entertained. The crew was very helpful and friendly and... More

We took our daughter on a 6 hour deep sea fishing trip. We went on the Good Times boat with Captain Mark and the Deckhand, Wesley. They were both awesome and we caught a lot of fish. Wesley, was a very hard worker, very patient and friendly. It was worth the extra money to go on the smaller boat size... More

We had an awesome time with incredible service from Mate Wesley and Captain Mark. We caught a large variety of fish and had an outstanding time doing so. Wesley worked extremely hard to keep everyone satisfied and having a good time.

Our time slot was at 7am due to me not making reservations sooner and changing companies. Chose Pelican because didn't have to change boats to parasail in the choppy waters of the Gulf. Thus is why I changed to Pelican. Same boat we boarded at Heron Harbor dock was the same boat we parasailed off. Very important for the older... More

What a gorgeous day! Party boat fishing can be crowded but we knew what to expect. The captain did a good job monitoring everyone's fishing and kept things moving. All staff were friendly and helpful throughout the trip.
