Yacht StarShip is the largest vessel in the flotilla and guests will experience a once in a lifetime viewing of the Invasion. Before the flotilla turns in to the downtown channel, Yacht StarShip will exit the flotilla and proceed ahead, providing a great view as the hundreds of boats condense into a small channel. Subject to Coast Guard approval, the cruise may return to the Convention Center dock at 12:30 PM and remain dockside until 2 PM where passengers can stay aboard to witness the flotilla as the pirate ship arrives at 1 PM. There will be Pirate Water Taxis to shuttle any guests back to the Channelside dock if desired after invasion until 2PM or it’s an 8-minute walk back to the Yacht StarShip Channelside dock on the Riverwalk.


Let’s Go! Walking is the best way to get to know a new place. I’m energetic and enjoy a good physical challenge, so I’m always ready to spend the day on the move. Whether it’s public transit, city streets or village cobblestones, I’m game..
