Happy holidays, South Florida! Our beautiful, balmy weather makes for excellent year-round cruising and some serious holiday fun. Take a look below to discover a few festive events ahead.

26th Annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade

Our favorite cruising parade is back! We are a proud sponsor of the 26th Annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade on Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. The parade and traveling fireworks display will travel from the Intracoastal Waterway from North Palm Beach to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, giving you and your family a fun event to enjoy against the backdrop of our beautiful winter weather.

Annual Toy Drive

As parade sponsors, South Florida Yachts is also a proud drop-off destination for toys as part of the 20th Annual Toy Drive benefiting Toys for Tots and Little Smiles! Perhaps more than ever, we’re reflecting on all the things for which we’re most thankful—and this holiday season provides a great way to spread some cheer and give back to those in need.

Meet the manatees

Although West Palm Beach’s beloved Manatee Lagoon is temporarily closed to visitors, the manatees didn’t get the memo! You can visit virtually via live cam and see the manatees congregate on cold days in waters warmed by the local Florida Power and Light facility. Of course, manatees can be found all throughout South Florida at this time of year, so keep an eye out for these gentle giants (or “sea cows”) as you cruise through the intracoastal and other aquatic destinations this holiday season.

Have fun finding the ultimate family gift

Whether you’re bringing home a new boat for the holidays, or simply want to “window shop” as you think about your dream ride, we here at South Florida Yachts are here to help make it a memorable season! Visit us at Riviera Beach to see our lineup of family cruisers and fishing boats in person, including the latest from Robalo, the spacious 2021 R360!

Cruise to tropical holiday tunes

The right playlist can make your holiday cruising even better! Switch up your music routine with tropical, beach-inspired holiday hits (like “Mele Kalikimaka” or “Christmas in the Sand”) for the perfect festive ambiance.

We hope these ideas help you and your family enjoy this holiday season to the fullest! This season and all year long, we’re here to help you discover South Florida’s boating scene with area insights, broker services and, of course, help finding the greatest gift of the year—a boat of your own.
