I am a mother of "teenagers" and as we all know they are impossible to please these days! So here is to all the momma's and daddy's out there trying to have a family vacation before the kiddos run off to college.... Pelican Adventures was by far the savior our of Vaca! The staff goes above and beyond to make it a special day. Not to mention the FISH! Even my girlie girls loved the experience which made there daddy very happy!

“The Best Fishing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

We have two young children and wanted a less intense deep sea fishing experience. We did the research and found the smallest party boat in the area. The Adventure II only carries 25 people and there is plenty of room to fish. Honestly, we thought it was going to be a disaster since there were many recent college grads on the boat with a ton of booze--I expected the young first mate to attend to them more, but he worked his behind off to attend to everyone. We only had a couple of tangled lines due to currents and they were taken care of quickly. We caught a huge bucket full of fish. The captain took extra time to dock at AJ's so that our kids could enter the fishing rodeo (and get the free rod and reels for entering fish over a pound). The first mate cleaned all the fish on the dock and bagged them up for us. We had a blast! The company was friendly and easy to deal with, and the cost was very reasonable for the experience.

“Great fishing trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

Went on a fishing charter boat and had a blast! We caught a bunch of fish and someone on the boat even caught a bull shark! The captain and deck hand were very friendly and attentive! I highly recommend!

“Beautiful Day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

Great time had by all! My 3 children, 23,21 & 10 all went up along with a friend and they had a blast! The crew was very friendly and eased any skepticism they had. I went along for the ride, had personally parasailed in the past and enjoyed the beautiful day. Take advantage of the coupon in the local visitors guide and/or on the internet.

“Terrible fishing Day”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

My daughter paid for a fishing trip for Me, her husband and her daughter. After cruising for 30 min. the captain turned around and had to load diesel. We lost an hour of fishing due to this. The boat was old and very slow. The poles were rigged for Red snappers and it was not a red snapper season anymore. Hooks were too big for 1 lb. fish. I am a fishing aficionado, I know my equipments and this whole fishing experience was terrible.
