Marco Island Yacht Club Hosts Open House

Celebrate the holiday season dining with the best waterside view of the Marco Island Boat Parade

The lights, the palm trees, the waterways.

Celebrate the holiday season with the best waterside view of the 25th annual Marco Island Boat Parade while dining at the Marco Island Yacht Club’s Harbor Dining Room.

Today, MIYC Membership Director Lisa Luft announced the Club will host an Open House, Saturday, December 8 from 5 pm until 9 pm, inviting the public to tour the facilities, watch the holiday flotilla and enjoy a buffet dinner at $34.95 for adults and $14.95 for children immediately following the parade.

“Christmas boat parades are one of the most-beloved customs of waterfront communities up and down the Gulf Coast to celebrate the holiday season,” says Ms. Luft. “The illuminated floating parade on waterways allows land-based viewers to enjoy the spectacle of Christmas lights glistening upon the sea,” she adds.

“It’s twice the sparkle of the season as twinkling lights reflect on the water.”

MIYC’s culinary team has prepared a sumptuous buffet of assorted salads, grilled salmon with shrimp butter, breast of chicken piccata, fettuccine alfredo, green beans with bacon and mushrooms and for a sweet finale, Christmas cookies and brownies.

Founded in 2001, the Marco Island Yacht Club is located at the junction of the Marco River and the Yacht Basin, at 1400 North Collier Boulevard, Marco Island, FL. The elegant Old-Florida style, two-story clubhouse, offers panoramic views of the Marco River, Jolley Bridge and Marco Island Marina. The Club recently introduced a new Harbor Room Dining Membership, a new membership category, for $150 annual dues, plus meals.
