Pelican Adventures – Velocious

The “Velocious” is a large 38’ Fountain Tournament Edition sportfishing boat. This is the ideal vessel for fishing offshore waters.  With triple Mercury 300 HP engines, you’ll reach fishing grounds that would take other boats days to get to. She has a large cabin for a center console. Also, you’ll find a shower, flushing toilet, and sink in the console.

After reaching the honey hole, thanks to the help of state of the art electronics and decades of experience, you’ll be using top-of-the-line equipment. We use Shimano Tiagras, Penns, and Electrics depending on our targeted species. Try bottom fishing the reefs for Snappers, Groupers, and Amberjacks, or troll offshore to catch a range of big game fish. Slide off the edge of the earth to pursue the Biggest, Baddest, fish in the sea. Daytime Swordfish in depths up to 2000’ for a chance to catch the ultimate trophy of a lifetime.

There’s space aboard for up to 6 guests. Children are more than welcome on board, so bring the whole family along for a memorable day. Any fish kept will be iced and the captain will clean and prepare your fish for you to take home at the end of the day. So, what are you waiting for? Stop wishing and let’s go fishing.  Reserve your spot today and let’s make it happen.
