Key West’s Annual Lighted Boat Parade 

In the heart of the tropical paradise in Key West, Florida, an annual spectacle unfolds that illuminates the island’s waterways with a kaleidoscope of lights and holiday cheer – the Lighted Boat Parade. Hundreds of boats light up and are decorated to bring holiday cheer to the island. 

As the anticipation builds and the sun dips below the horizon, casting a warm glow over Key West’s historic harbor, a flotilla of boats prepares itself for the Lighted Boat Parade. Decking the Halls, or rather, the Deck. Restless Native Charters’ dedication to spreading holiday joy becomes evident as our boat undergoes a transformation like no other. The deck becomes a canvas for holiday magic, adorned with an array of lights and festive decorations.

A Cherished Key West Tradition:


The Lighted Boat Parade in Key West is more than a spectacle; it’s a cherished tradition that marks the beginning of the holiday season in this tropical paradise. It symbolizes the kickoff to the holiday season, where locals and visitors alike come together to celebrate the spirit of the island. We hope you make this year’s event, but if not, mark your calendars for next year!
