Pure Naples Shines in Christmas Boat Parade

By Sharon Julian

We shined, alright – as in “Double Sunshine”! Winning the “Commercial 41’+” category, our M/V Double Sunshine presented herself well in the 2013 Marine Industries Christmas Boat Parade on December 14th. The Double Sunshine was dressed up in all of her finery and having a full crowd of Ohio State Alumni Club of Naples on board. This group joined us for the third-straight-year, and have booked again for 2014. Go Buckeyes!

This year’s theme for the parade was “The 12 Days of Christmas” and M/V Double Sunshine decked out in the Ohio State’s colors of red and white fitted in with that theme beautifully. You can see some beautiful pictures of the Double Sunshine and all of the other boats in this Naples Daily News photo album.

Pure Naples also had M/V Naples Explorer and M/V Lady Brett taking part in the Marine Industries Association of Collier County (MIACC) pre-Christmas fun with local residents and friends.

Now we look forward to post-Christmas activities available from our berths at Tin City:

At Pure Naples, Fishing is CATCHING!
Our deep sea, calm bay (back water), sunset and family group fishing trip options continue to catch well. Private charter fishing aboard the M/V Kudu and M/V Kudu II are also a great way to spend the day, either with friends or family – so, “Lets Go Catching”!

Naples Florida Cruises
M/V Double Sunshine continues to draw out of town tourists, local residents and seasonal residents alike with the daily sightseeing cruises and the ever-popular sunset cruise.

Cruise and Dine Options
Personally, I find it is a great way to start an evening before heading off to a favorite restaurant. Another idea is to take advantage of our “Cruise and Dine” options with Pinchers Crabshack or Riverwalk restaurants located right at Tin City.

Jet Boat Tours
Our Jet Boat ODIN is always in the holiday spirit with her red hull! She has been taking in large numbers for her 360 degree Kiwi spin while exploring and learning about the ecology of the Naples Bay area, and there is often a ‘little spray that comes on board’.

Or Create Your Own Adventure!
Our Jet Ski Rentals and Deck Boat Rentals are popular for exploring Naples, Florida on your own. Many of our guests enjoy beaching with a picnic lunch, as well as shelling.
