Come enjoy some Christmas spirit at the 30th Annual Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade!  Last year we had over 30 boats participating and this year promises to be even more exciting.

The parade begins at Salty Sam’s Marina and will pass many restaurants on the back bay such as Parrot Key Caribbean Grill, Original Shrimp Dock, Matanzas on the Bay, Nervous Nellie’s, Bonita Bill’s, Dixie Fish Co. and Doc Ford’s where you can kick back and enjoy the fun. You will also be able to vote online for Best Decorated Boat!


This event is brought to you by the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce.

Parade Route:
The parade will pass though Matanzas Harbor and the first two canals of Siesta Isles. The ends of those canals are a great spot to set up a lawn chair to watch the event. Another good viewing location is the fountain next to Nervous Nellies. 

Enter A Boat:
Cost to enter a boat in the parade is $25 for a non-sponsored boat and $50 for a sponsored boat. You can pay online below but you still MUST sign and submit an application. If you wish you can send a check or credit card information with your application rather than pay online.
