Pelican Adventures - “Vera Marie”

(50) Just booked!
314 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

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.

Not only is Vera Marie an excellent head boat, Pelican Adventures can also offer her as the perfect base for corporate parties, holiday celebrations, weddings, bachelor/ette parties, and many more group gatherings.

NO MORE than a six pack size cooler will be allowed aboard, the galley/snack bar items are $1-$3 Alcohol is $3-$5.

Note departure times vary by season: check-in is one hour prior to your departure.

Excellent fishing trip. Just a long boat ride out and not much fishing. In one spot and move to another spot every 10-15 minutes but I would recommend the trip.

The folks on this boat were awesome!! All the first mates were very friendly and really good at their jobs.  We caught plenty of keeper fish and they cleaned them for gratuity ( but wasn’t required)  the boat was clean, Captain was fun and informative.  All the equipment was in great working conditions. We recommend this charter and will definitely board this trip again soon!  The price was reasonable and the experience was priceless!!  if you are looking for a good time with friends and family while you catch dinner, go out on the Vera Marie!
