Fun Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on Your Boat

Dec 15, 2020 | Lifestyle

You don’t have to look very far to see why Jacksonville is quickly becoming a top vacation destination in the south. From historic hotspots in St. Augustine to waterfront relaxation in Jacksonville Beach, there are so many great ways to celebrate the holidays here. The Floridians here at Dockside Seafood know a thing or two about having fun around Jax. 

Cozy Up to a Local Restaurant for Fresh Seafood and Festive Drinks

Jacksonville is full of wonderful waterfront restaurants and bars you’re sure to love this holiday. We’re certainly biased, but Dockside Seafood offers everything you could want after a long day of cruising. Great beer and wine, seasonal seafood favorites and an unbeatable location are a few solid reasons to stop by. 

“My wife and I ate here during the holidays and it’s a great place to grab lunch or dinner, period. Check it out — the views are spectacular. I highly recommend Dockside Seafood for the price…it has some of the best seafood.”

Mix a Large-Batch Cocktail for Your Friends Aboard

You just can’t go wrong with a strong, on-theme drink for everyone on board. A few of our favorites include a pitcher of cranberry sangria, coconut white Russian or a classic old fashioned. A simple Google search will pull up plenty of tried-and-true recipes for these crowd pleasers. A simple cocktail allows your guests to let loose and truly relax during the holiday season. 

Upgrade Your Boat With Fun Christmas Decor

Festive Christmas lights are a great way to take your winter boating to a whole new level. When you follow the necessary safety steps, string lights will bring fun to your guests and passersby alike. Be aware that adding lights increases the risk of an electrical fire, so it’s important to be smart. Be sure to use brand new string lights free of fraying wires and unlit bulbs. Use plenty of electric tape to tie down the connections, and be cautious not to overload your boat’s circuits. 

Enjoy Seasonal Favorites at Dockside Seafood this Season

We’re serving up your favorite fried fish, fresh appetizers and cold drinks all year-’round. Instead of staying indoors this Christmas season, take your family out for an afternoon cruise to your local restaurant. Check out our menu here. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
