Pelican Adventures – Deep Sea Fishing

(39)
In demand!

If you find yourself in Destin and want to see why the fishing there is so acclaimed, book yourself a trip with Pelican Adventures and find out what the fuss is about. The Good Times crew offers exciting offshore fishing trips that are fun for the whole family.

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.

Pelican Adventures offers both shared and private fishing trips, so 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.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip, along with all the necessary fishing licenses. The mates primarily work for tips, so any gratuity is very much appreciated. You may want to bring sunglasses, drinks, snacks, and motion sickness pills if this is your first time out just to be safe.
