Winterfest Boat Parade

We’ll be rafting up to witness the annual Winterfest Boat Parade (anchoring off the end of Seville Street, Ft. Lauderdale). We’ll always be celebrating the birthday of Co-Founder Joshua Pettus, and the 13th Anniversary of founder Jeremy and Joshua.

We Boat, Teach & Know Things


Join us for a rafting or flotilla event. As a guideline, one weekend of each month is dedicated to an on-water overnight raft-up. The location of this event changes monthly, and can be RSVP'd on the Facebook page,  via email, or at the Meet & Greet. We also have impromptu raft-ups that are usually posted on the Facebook Page.

Muster Station

We hold monthly Meet and Greets the first Sunday of each month noon- 6pm at Flip Flops Dockside Eatery (3051 NE 32 Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308) to socialize, welcome new members, and discuss future events. This is the time we also hold training sessions on boater education.

Hump Day Happy Hour! 4-8PM every Wednesday at leBoy 1243 NE 11th Street, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33311
