Welcome to Pelican Adventures! Get ready for an adrenaline filled day full of bottom fishing in the Gulf of Mexico aboard the “Vera Marie”. The Vera Marie’s crew offers exciting offshore fishing trips that are fun for everyone! Whether you’re bringing the family (please note that the minimum age to come aboard is 6 years old), planning a corporate outing, or are in town by yourself, come enjoy a day out on the water catching all the fish you can manage. Trips aboard the Vera Marie 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!

 

You’ll be fishing with top of the line Rods and Reels, and bottom fishing will be the main technique. The first mates on board are more than willing to help you land the fish, and make sure that everyone is having a fun, safe trip! The mates primarily work for tips, so any gratuity is very much appreciated. You may also want to bring sunglasses, drinks, snacks, and motion sickness pills if this is your first time out, just to be safe.

We’ll be fishing the Offshore Waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which means you’ll have the chance to catch your fill of Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Triggerfish, Rockfish, Spanish Mackerel, Porgy and more! These fish put up a great fight and are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. The best part about catching these species is the fact that they’re delicious! You can only harvest Snapper when they’re in season, but Spanish Mackerel, Triggerfish, and others are just as tasty.  You may want to bring a personal sized cooler to bring home the fish you’re about to catch!

The Vera Marie is a 70’ Saltwater fishing boat that is powered by a 1600 HP Detroit engine. It has all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a smooth trip, along with amenities such as a toilet, a cooler, a live well, and more. When you book a trip with us, the price also includes your fishing license, all of the Rods, Reels, and Terminal Tackle you’ll need, as well as Filleting your catch!

 

Captain David Dewberry runs a tight ship, and always puts your safety first. He has a CPR-Trained crew, as well as all the First-Aid Equipment necessary in the case of an emergency. He is great with families and loves sharing his knowledge with young anglers. Having over 18 years of experience as a Captain navigating the waters off of the coast of Destin, Florida, there is no one more qualified for the job! 

 

Book your trip today and let Captain David Dewberry and his crew aboard the Vera Marie provide you with countless great memories. If Captain David’s 18 years of experience isn’t enough for you, you’ll be delighted to hear that his crew is loaded with generations of charter fishing experience, and they have the knowledge and time investment to give you the BEST fishing adventure.

    • Shark Catch!

      Created Eric Rion

      Shark that was a lot of fun) and good catch including this 24+ lb Red Snapper! Wish I could say I caught it but I was standing next to the lucky angler. Also, NEVER GIVE UP.....this fish was the last fish caught at the last stop of the trip! Vera Marie is a great boat. This was my second trip and already looking forward to next time.

    • Thanksgiving fishing!

      Created Amber M

      I went the day before Thanksgiving and it was truly one of the most enjoyable/memorable things I’ve ever done. The crew was fabulous and the captain took us to some great spots. Lots of families were on board and everyone seemed to have a good time. We caught a lot of fish. There were a few we had to toss back in since they weren’t in season, but it was all in all a great trip and I will be back. Our lines also did get tangled up a few times, but the crew did a good job of getting it cleared up or getting us new lines.

      Created Matt Collamore

      Great Trip! Wife and I fished on the Vera Marie Wed Oct 17th, 6-7 hr trip. Boat was full but it didn’t matter. EVERYONE caught fish. Crew was right there every time someone yelled Fish On! It was non-stop action. Crew was great and patient with other folks that were beginner fisherman...We froze fish and brought 4 bags of frozen fillets home with us. Thanks Mike! We will fish on the Vera Marie next time we’re in Destin. Again, Great Trip and Excellent Value!

    • First Fish!
