The Christmas Flotilla

Fishing boats and pleasure craft electrically decorated with thousands of lights present a spectacular display on the Intracoastal Waterway.


They cruise from Snows Cut to the Carolina Beach Boat Basin and back. The boats compete for prizes and add to the wonderful holiday spirit.


This Christmas flotilla always takes place on the second Saturday after Thanksgiving and begins at 6 PM. For this years date go to the Home Page.

A panel of judges will be on hand to choose the winners.
Bring the family and enjoy the evening at Carolina Beach.

For an application to enter a boat in the Flotilla, go to the Checkered Church at 800 St. Joseph St., Carolina Beach (910) 458-0211 or click the link on this site beginning in November.
