Event Details

We are happy to announce that the route for the Holiday Boat Parade of Lights is returning to the waters of the Ybor Channel directly alongside of the AmVic Ship! It’s THE prime location to watch the decorated boats pass by.

The night will be filled with music, food trucks, cocoa, egg nog, beer, wine, fun activities, dress-up photo ops, and of course, lighted boats! But it doesn’t stop there! Get a picture with Santa aboard the ship during this event!

Tickets are available at, by calling 1-866-468-7630, or in person aboard the ship. Prices are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, active military, veterans and first responders, and $7 for youths 4-12. Celebrate with us!

Continue the fun all December long with All Decked Out! Select portions of the ship are decked out for the Holidays to create a little extra cheer. The joyous decor makes for wonderful photo opportunities!

The holiday season is all about family and fun, so we’ve added something a little special to Saturdays in December. Every Saturday, children will receive free popcorn and freeze pops! There will also be a special arts and crafts section where their inner artist can create their own ornaments free of charge! Glue, glitter, cotton balls, stickers and more await! It’s a great way to interact with your child and build memories to last a life time!
