When it comes to local celebrations, the Gasparilla Pirate Festival is the pride and joy of Tampa Bay. Join us dockside for front row seats to the “Pirate Ship Invasion” Boat Parade, with the main parade route on Bayshore Boulevard just a short walk away.

If you value privacy, security, and an elevated experience, Sunburst Yacht Charters is the perfect option to get the most out of the Gasparilla festivities. Contact us today to discuss your charter.

Celebrate Spring
Memorial Day

Memorial Day is often held up as Spring’s last hurrah, and what better way to make the weekend memorable than to charter one of our handsome Sunseeker yachts for a day on Tampa Bay. Summer brings summer showers, but Memorial Day tends to fall on the sweet spot between warming weather and the rainy season.

Call today to secure your spot on what is most likely one of our favorite weekends to get out on the water.

A Proud Day

Whether it’s high school, college, or graduate school, graduations are always worth celebrating and they don’t come around by accident – It takes years of hard work. If you’re lucky enough to have a family member graduating, savor the moment with the whole family on a Sunburst Yacht Charters yacht. Our location on Harbour Island means that we’re an easy choice for families with graduates from University of Tampa, Hillsborough Community College, University of South Florida, and Eckerd College.

But graduation season is also notoriously competitive, so book today to make sure your family can celebrate to the fullest.

Celebrate Parents
Mother’s/Father’s Day

Most of us don’t get to call too many people “mom” or “dad,” but when we do, it signifies a cherished, unbreakable connection. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are the two biggest occasions where we are all invited to think about what our parents mean to us, and the sacrifices they made to raise us. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the family can’t enjoy the day, too.

Take your parents out for a day on the water like they’ve never had before, or celebrate your spouse for everything that they do for your family. We offer packages for brunch cruises, custom grilling menus, whiskey and wine tastings, and so much more! Call today.

Summer Celebration
July 4th

July 4th is our day to celebrate everything that our nation has accomplished and the commonalities that bring us together. As the last major holiday of the season, July 4th also amounts to a celebration of Summer, and what better way to send Summer off for another year than charter a luxury yacht in Tampa Bay.

Both of our yachts feature outdoor grills, hydraulic swim platforms, and outdoor bars perfect for preparing your favorite seasonal cocktails. As the sun sets, end the day with a bang and let our crew find you a waterfront view for some of the largest fireworks displays in Tampa Bay. Book your celebration.

'Tis the Season

If you have lived in Tampa for long enough, then you know how beautiful a Florida Christmas can be. The brisk night, crisp morning, and temperate day are a rare treat for us. If you’re looking for a way to keep the family together, revel in the weather, and spice up Christmas morning without buying plane tickets or spending all day in the car, Sunburst Yacht Charters might be exactly what you’re looking for. Our two Sunseeker yachts are each over 80ft long with four bedrooms sleeping eight in total.

Your family can sleep in comfortably until it’s time to open presents, and our salon is spacious enough that everyone can spread out and still be included in conversation. Take a half-day cruise around Tampa Bay, return to Harbour Island for a dockside Christmas Dinner from one of our talented chefs. Call today to book your Christmas charter and begin planning a holiday to remember.

Ring In the New Year In Style
New Year's Eve

New Year’s Eve has become one of the most glamorous nights of the year, which is exactly the kind of event where you can expect to see Sunburst Yacht Charters shine. Our location on Harbour Island in front of Jackson’s Bistro is truly ideal on a night like New Year’s Eve. Take one of our yachts out for an afternoon charter to start the party. Then, return to Harbour Island to join the New Year’s festivities – but without the painfully long queue, overcrowded venue, and exorbitant cab fare.

The flybridge of our yachts stand 20ft over the level of the water, so you and your guests have a uniquely “VIP” experience that rises above the chaos of the holiday foot traffic. And when you factor in front-row seats to one of Tampa’s largest firework displays of the evening, our yachts deliver an unforgettable experience that is sure to set a superb tone for the new year. Get in touch today.
