Pelican Adventures - Good Times

Pelican Adventures offers fantastic trips targeting a range of offshore species. Fishing out of Destin, Florida, a town famous for its fishing, they are within easy reach of the bountiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

You will be fishing aboard the “Good Times”, a 45 ft Sea Harvester walk around powered by twin 450 HP John Deere engines and maintained to the highest possible standards. She boasts an air-conditioned interior with a spacious cabin, toilet, and plenty of space to relax in the cool, and comes equipped with GPS, fish finder, outriggers, a live bait tank, and everything you will need for your day’s fishing.

Fishing with Pelican Adventures aboard “Good Times” , groups of all sizes can find a trip to suit them. From a morning or afternoon out with family or friends catching Variety of Snapper, King Mackerel, and Trigger, to a 12 hour offshore extravaganza targeting Amberjack and Grouper (and many other amazing species), these guys will have the trip for you. They also provide equipment for a range of fishing techniques including bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning, and their highly-skilled first mate will work tirelessly to keep the rods bending, no matter how they’re set up.

All Pelican Adventures fishing trips come with fishing licenses for all on board. Live bait can be caught, or bought for around $20-$40 for our private trips, depending on the group size and trip length.
