When we think of the holidays, we aren’t thinking snowmen and hot cocoa. For a true Florida holiday experience, you need sunshine, a sea breeze, and a boat! Here’s how to plan the perfect Florida holiday on the water.

Embrace The Boating Lifestyle

Boating is a way of living in Southwest Florida. We even have holiday parades on the water! These are a great way to get to know others in the boating community and see what everyone’s plans are for the holidays. You might learn of great new spots, especially if you are a new boater.

We recommend you start by checking out Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade. It’s on December 4 from 6 PM till 8 PM and it will start at Salty Sam’s Marina.

Find The Right Boat

What’s a better way to spend the holidays than relaxing on a brand-new boat? If you are looking for boats for sale in Fort Myers or Naples area, check out our selection at Fish Tale Boats. We offer quality lines of pleasure, family, and fishing boats such as Grady-White Boats, Chaparral Boats, Robalo Boats, & Premier Pontoons.

Whether you are looking to go on a holiday fishing trip or a relaxing day out on the water, we can pair you with the perfect boat for your boating adventures!

Bring The Right Gear

Before you head out, make sure you have everything you need for your holiday trip. You’ll need all the normal boating essentials (like PFDs, emergency kit, water, and food) but don’t forget to bring some extra holiday fun too! Consider buying a grill bracket for a holiday BBQ or a ski tow bar for added adventure!

Go Out and Enjoy!

You’ve got the boat, the gear, and some insider knowledge, now it’s time to get on the water. At Fish Tale Boats, we love boating just as much as you do, so we’ll be out celebrating the holidays on the water too! Follow us on Facebook or Instagram and share your experiences with us!
