Deep sea fishing Destin, Florida is a hobby with both locals and visitors to the Emerald Coast and can be very fruitful the further out you fish in deeper waters. The Gulf of Mexico is fished via the East Pass in Destin and charters can reach these depths on private fishing charters best with calm seas to go the distance.
Destin is affectionately called the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” and Pelican Adventures offers a variety of fishing trips from private and shared fishing charters to fishing aboard Vera Marie party boat with multi-passengers.
Pelican Adventures is family owned and operating our 20th year in business on the Destin Harbor. We book fishing trips daily year-round for inshore and offshore.
Velocious is the newest fishing boat at Pelican Adventures– 38′ Fountain Tournament Edition Center Console. Not only is she super fast, but also a serious fishing machine. Velocious is as fast as she is pretty and able to get anglers to the deepest fishing spots quickly with less travel time! Pelican Adventures will put you on the fish regardless of the trip however our private trips to get the big ones need to be at least 6 hours and extending up to 12 hours and multi-day trips for the monster fish!
We had a 10 hour fishing charter on Velocious that was a great treat for all! Two beginner anglers were on the 6 person fishing trip and everyone is now hooked for fishing for life!
The trip was a lot of fun and a lot of catching! Big Yellowedge Grouper, Scamp Grouper, Banded Rudderfish, Almaco Jacks and a slew of Vermillion Snapper were brought back to the dock and cleaned for dinner. A few sharks were also caught and released along with Red Snapper and Amberjack due to season limits.
