Marco Island Christmas Boat Parade:
Can you believe another year has gone by? Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the unforgettable annual Marco Island Christmas Boat Parade. Gaze at beautifully decorated vessels, gliding down the Marco River and around Collier Bay. Glimmering with holiday cheer, the participating boats are strewn with reindeer, garlands, lights and any other holiday decoration our captains could come with! There are many locations to view this not-to-miss event; we recommend The Esplanade and The Snook Inn. There is no way you won’t be in the holiday spirit after the last boat has faded into the distance.
