My family and I were excited to book their party cruise, with most every other offshore excursion being booked due to the 4th of July. We woke up at 5:15, made it to the dock to find no one at the boat! We thought maybe we misunderstood where to meet them to board, so we called their number only to... More

I decided, to my husband's and adult daughter's surprise and delight, that we should go parasailing during out trip to Santa Rosa Beach. I did some research and found that Pelican Adventures had a BOGO 1/2 off coupon. I also liked that they let you take pictures--some places didn't allow it. We booked a 6:00 slot. The crew was great!... More

This was a Father's Day gift, my husband and son spent an afternoon fishing. The team and the captain were extremely patient with the guests, especially considering their were plenty of first timers. They had a blast on the Vera Marie, a perfect introduction to a new hobby. The staff wattles very diligently to help everyone out. They cleaned the... More

My family had a good time and we did catch some fish. I caught a tuna which was very exciting only to have the captain tell me it was a blood tuna and they would keep it for bait. Well after I got home and did some research, no where could I find any thing on something called a blood... More

Booked online day before parasailing trip for 4 people. We show up at our scheduled time and they tell us the boat broke and they had to cancel all afternoon reservations. Certainly we understand these things happen but no phone call or email to let us know prior to us driving there. I provided 2 phone numbers for them when... More

First time deep sea fishing ever! We had so much fun! So worth the price we paid. I really wanted to go deep sea fishing but couldn't afford the private charter rates and was told about Pelican Adventures from a friend. It was so worth the price! Snacks and restrooms are available and there's also an air conditioned place to... More

Took two 13 year old boys out for their first deep sea fishing experience with very low expectations but ended up pleasantly surprised. Great captain and crew who did everything except bait the hooks. Boat was clean and everyone was helpful from the booking to the actual trip. Not a great day for fish but the captain did everything he... More

First time Snorkeling and it was a pleasant trip. Capt G knew a lot about the area and pointed out many points of interests. As well Moses was a cool guy and helped not only myself but other get accustomed to getting used to using snorkels and bring fish close. I went with my family and would definitely go again.... More

My wife and I along with our two young daughters had a magnificent experience going out and snorkeling with the crew. I forget the Captain and crews' names but she was very professional and informative. The crew: Jake and Moses I believe, were very helpful to make sure our novice skills were as enjoyable as possible. My only suggestion is... More

We had a great time parasailing with these guys. This was the first time parasailing for most of us and we felt safe and had a great time. They took some great photos and several in our party thought it was their favorite excursion. The crew and the shore staff were pleasant and helpful.
