Fun Deep Sea Fishing

We did a private charter for 11. It was my son's 16th bday, and he had a great time. He will never forget reeling in that shark! The fishing guide was very nice and helpful. He... read more

Captain Mark and Dan were fantastic! We went out on a semi private charter and had the best time! Dan the highly experienced deckhand obviously loves what he does because he didn't miss a beat. Often he would start baiting my hook for me and I'd tell him it's ok I have it, he said 'I like to help'. So... More

I went out on the Vera Marie party boat in early October. The ride out was pretty rough - I got seasick! I think I was the only one on the ship, so I am not letting that color my review. It's a long ride to get out to the fishing spots despite them being close to shore. The ride... More

My 14 year old son and I chose Pelican Adventures for our deep sea fishing group charter and we are glad we did. We were put on the GOOD TIMES with Capt Mueller & deck hand Dan. They took us where we were assured to catch fish, big and small. Dan worked his tail off keeping our baited lines in... More

We took our daughters (6 & 9) parasailing and decided on pelican adventures. The captain and his deck hand was super nice and even took us to an area to dolphin watch after parasailing. We had a fantastic time and my girls loved it!!! I definitely recommend.

The boat was poor. It's top speed was so slow we ended up riding 4 hours in a 6 hour fishing trip. It was old and smelly with no soap or paper towels to wash our hands. The captain was polite but not very interactive. The hand mate was great. We caught a lot of fish but the bigger ones... More

Our captain and deck hand Mo were both great. Snorkeling was fun but I am not a good swimmer and they were kind enough to let me sit on the boat to wait for the rest of the group. We saw lots of dolphins and huge sea turtle on our way back to the harbor. We got done snorkeling early... More

Went on a party boat fishing charter and had a blast. It helped that the water was as calm as can be. I caught 13 fish on the 6 hour trip. The captain put us right over the fish. They had great music playing as we were getting good out to the fishing spots. The deck hands were also awesome.... More

Our experience was great all around. The captain and deckhand were wonderful! The boat was clean and roomy. We purchased a shared trip. There were a total of 13 fishermen, including children. The deckhand was great and helped in anyway. He was very knowledgeable and had an awesome personality. He and the captain cheered us on as we reeled in... More
