Cruise into 2012 on an exclusive New Year's Eve Fireworks Cruise aboard the Pieces of Eight Pirate Ship. The ship will depart at 11 p.m. from Salty Sam's Marina, travel through Matanzas Pass and around Bowditch Point to the fishing pier and as the clock strikes midnight, the Pirate Ship will be in position to watch the fireworks erupt over Fort Myers Beach. Toast the New Year on the Gulf with friends and loved ones and then enjoy a leisurely cruise back to Salty Sam's Marina under the stars of the nighttime sky.
"The New Year's Eve cruise is always a lot of fun. Talk about the best of both worlds! Enjoying a fireworks show from the water is a wonderful way to combine two favorite activities", says Phil Doller, captain of the Pirate Cruise. "There's just something about seeing the bright reflections off the water that makes you feel like you're getting double the entertainment."
The Pirate Cruise departs from Salty Sam's Marina, home of Parrot Key Caribbean Grill and Big Game Waterfront Grill. Plan to double your fun by dining before the cruise at Parrot Key or the Big Game.
