Fathers Day Fishing Cruise

Celebrate Father’s Day with a cruise on Biscayne Bay! Throughout the year, Pontoon Boat Tours are offered on the Pelican Island Skipper, a 45-foot Corinthian Catamaran. This trip will depart from Deering Estate at 1:00 PM and return at 4:00 PM for a three hour, catch & release fishing trip. It is encouraged for guests to bring their own rods and tackle. Bait will be provided and a limited number of rods. Deering Estate Naturalists will join to educate guests on sea birds, and sea mammals throughout the trip. The vessel complies with Coast Guard Regulations and is ADA accessible.
Cost: $50 per person (members and non-members). Spaces are limited!
Please arrive to the Deering Estate at least 30 minutes early prior to check in. Initial check-in is at the Main Gate & again when boarding the vessel. Tours will depart on time; the tour cannot be held for late arriving guests. Bugs & mosquitos are very common throughout the year, please come prepared (mosquito spray/lotion, long sleeve shirts, & long pants are suggested).
Ticket price includes general admission to the Estate during regular Estate hours (10AM to 4PM) the same day of your cruise.

Weather and water conditions are closely monitored prior to departure. Trips may be cancelled and rescheduled due to weather and water conditions.
