Party boat fishing refers to a large group of people combined together on one boat to go deep sea fishing (also called “head boats”. There are certain characteristics of party boats that appeal to first time, and even seasoned anglers, including larger boats, a lower cost compared to other fishing charter options, and the type of fishing that party boats are known for. The Vera Marie is a 70 foot party boat located on the Destin Harbor at Pelican Adventures – click here to view the entire boat!
