TAMPA, Fla. — Hop on Tampa’s Pirate Water Taxi for a Christmas light tour on the Hillsborough River.

These boats take you underneath lighted bridges and along the sparkling skyline of Tampa for a one-of-a-kind holiday tour.

As you set sail, you will get up-close views of Downtown Tampa’s spectacular seasonal decorations and Christmas lights. This family-friendly event will include a visit by a jolly pirate elf, Christmas song sing-a-longs, and a chance to see snow flurries in Florida!

Every child will have an opportunity to write a letter to Santa and drop it off in Tampa’s only floating mailbox.
