Pelican Adventures - “Vera Marie”
One of our top picks in Destin. Pelican Adventures’ “Vera Marie” raises the bar for fishing “Party Boats”.
Carrying up to 65 passengers, this impressive vessel is perfect for people who want to spend the day on the water fishing without breaking the bank. Being a Party Boat, Vera Marie carries a lot of people - this allows the cost per head to remain low. If you are looking for a cheap way to get out on the water and have some fun and don’t mind being with other people, then this is a great affordable way to do so. However, if you want to catch larger fish with fewer people around, it is recommended to consider booking one of Pelican Adventures’ private boats.
This 70 ft walk-around boat runs two fishing trips every day during the season and one trip per day during the off season. An exceptional party boat, she features a full service Sports Bar fitted with multiple satellite TVs - never again will you have to wait until after your fishing trip to keep up with the results of an important game. You will also find a spacious Sun Deck on board, as well as a fully air-conditioned salon, bathrooms, and even overnight accommodations.

No complaints about the boat; just as advertised. It’s crowded, but priced accordingly. The captain did a great job finding fish. No wasted time. If the fish weren’t there, we moved on. A few tangles but the crew did a good job quickly sorting them out.
One part of the trip really rubbed me wrong. My girlfriend caught the biggest fish of her life: a good sized Bonita. The crew helped her land it and since it was too big to fit in the cooler under the seat, they moved it to the main cooler. I heard one of the deckhands say, “if they don’t want that fish, I’ll take it.” We did want to keep the fish. When we stopped to fish at the next wreck, I looked behind us to see a member of the crew casting an entire side of our fish out to fish for a shark. I was not happy. I called a deckhand over and asked why they would use our fish for bait without asking us. He had a sudden look of panic and tried to explain that “most” people don’t keep them. The ironic part is that he was the same deckhand that I heard saying he would like to keep it.
I didn’t make a huge fuss at the time because we still had fish to catch. I did explain to him they should never think it’s ok to use a customer’s fish for their bait without asking.
Overall I would recommend this boat and trip for people that want to catch a few fish and get offshore.

Captain and crew were excellent. The only complaint was the rough seas but that’s mother nature. The captain worked very hard to keep us on the fish. Making the trip as enjoyable as possible was priority.
