No license needed to fish!
Written on Monday, December 16, 2013
Here in Perdido fishing is a lifestyle. Free fishing days are a great opportunity for parents who don’t have licenses to take the kids out or for an avid angler to introduce a friend without having to purchase a license. On these days, the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers be they residents or non-residents alike. All other rules (i.e.: seasons, bag, and size limits apply). Perdido Key has some of the best spots to offshore fish and lots of charter boat options.
License free freshwater days: 12/28/13, 4/5/14, 4/6/14, 6/7/14, 6/8/14
License free saltwater days: 6/7/14, 6/8/14, 9/6/14, 11/29/14
The saltwater waiver also applies to any of the recreational harvesting that normally needs a fishing license (crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.) as well as fishing from a shore or boat. So be sure to come and ask the locals in Perdido Key where the fish are biting!

Welcome Winter in Perdido Key!
Written on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
The air may be
crisp, but the sky is clear and the sun always shines on the Key. There is never a shortage of activities here
in Pensacola no matter the season.
Whether you prefer to take a run downtown through the historic district
or stop to smell the flowers, Perdido Key has something to offer you!
Run a 5k then
reward yourself with a beer! Every
Wednesday at World of Beer Downtown, participants get half off after they earn
it. Stay active and keep moving to avoid
the chill this winter, whether it’s every Wednesday at WOB for fun or to gear
up for Pensacola Beach Run ½ Marathon, 5K and 10K. All of the 3 courses are flat and fast. You can pick the distance you want at the
turns-so if you feel great still at the 5K, just keep going for the 10K, or the
½ Marathon! This event will have runs
adjacent to the beaches for all 3 courses.
So get ready for January 11th. For details: 850-932-1500
Key is an island and we are all about the salt life…. But if you head a few
minutes down the road there is Holiday skating for the thrill seekers! If you are looking for some Holiday fun grab
your friends and head to The Wharf. Your
2 hour rental includes skates for just $8, and for $2 more you could also enjoy
a ride on the Ferris Wheel and view the water from the air! If the actual skating isn’t for you, but you
still want to see some ice action, head over to the Pensacola Bay Center for an
Ice Flyers game! Parking is free and
gates open an hour before the puck drops.
something more relaxed? Visit the famed
camellias and a winter garden filled with blooms of pansies, violas, primroses,
tulips, daffodils, etc. The Bellingrath
Gardens and Home is in Theodore, AL and offers many special events each
month. For details call 251-973-2217
Looking for a
fun, hands on activity? Join artist
Talis Jayme every Wednesday at the Artwork Studio and Gallery for a night of
Painting and wine. Admission is $20, and
everything is provided-including the wine!
Private art lessons are also available, details: 850-261-9616
So, no matter
what you are looking for in your escape this winter, run away to see us in
Perdido Key-where there is always something happening!
