Ahoy Skippers! All aboard for the 9th Annual Lighted Boat Parade Saturday December 15th hosted by the Bridge Street Merchants Association, in conjunction with the Cortez Yacht Club. The Anna Maria Island Annual Lighted Boat parade starts after sundown in the Inter-coastal Waterway from Mar Vista traveling north to the Seafood Shack in Cortez. All types of boats will be participating and there is even a $500 Grand Prize for the best decorated vessel! Santa is rumored to attend, so you won’t want to miss it!
The sun is shining, the fishing is great, and Anna Maria Island truly is a boater’s paradise. Everyone should take the time to get out onto the gulf waters, go fishing, sailing, or just cruse at your own pace while you watch the sun go down.
Whatever you do don’t be worried about where to keep you boat if you are renting one, or bringing your own during your Anna Maria Island Vacation. Some of our Vacation Rentals have their own boat dock and if they do not you can keep your boat at Catcher’s Marina in Holmes Beach for a small fee.
Catcher’s Marina is located at 5501 Marina Drive in Holmes Beach just south of the Island Real Estate Office. Subject to availability, “but they always seem to have space”, Catcher’s Marina has daily $40.00, weekly $200, and monthly $350 rates. MAX boat size 28’ or smaller…
