Pelican Adventures – Shared Fishing

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.

The Good Times is a 42’ Saltwater fishing boat that is powered by a 350 HP Detroit engine. It has all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a smooth trip, along with amenities such as a toilet.

Trips aboard the Good Times are shared, meaning you will be fishing along with any other people who booked a trip at the same time. This is a great way to save money if you don’t mind fishing with other people. However, if you would like to have the entire boat to yourself, it might be a good idea to consider booking one of the other private boats that are part of the Pelican Adventures fleet.

Offshore fishing in this part of Florida means lots of Snapper, including Red, Vermillion, Mangrove and Lane Snapper. Other fish like Triggerfish, Rockfish, and Spanish Mackerel can also be found swimming about.

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.
