How was your Thanksgiving? At Fury, we had a blast on the Thanksgiving Day Ultimate Adventure, as usual! The fleet was out in full force with all vessels manned by the friendly Fury crew.
If you’ve never celebrated your Thanksgiving out at sea, you’re definitely missing out on a really unique (and warm!) way to celebrate the holidays. We shoved off at 10am and headed for the reef for a morning of snorkeling. Breakfast was served on the way. It was truly a beautiful day!
Once everyone was back on the boat, all the fixins for a delicious turkey luncheon were spread out, including Andy’s famous Cuban pork dish. It was the perfect fuel to get through the rest of the day. Once we tied up to Adventure Island, the Key West parasailing boats were at the ready to whisk people up in the air. The jet skis and kayaks were put to use, and all the fun inflatable toys were swarmed with fun-loving people!
Earlier in the week, Nicole’s parents, who were visiting from Wyoming, cooked a traditional turkey dinner. Marius & Lana, Becky & Rob, Meredith & Andrew, Annabelle, Stephen, and Westy were all there! It was quite a feast and we had a blast!
For the second year in a row, we also gathered the troops to deliver turkey dinners to needy families in the Lower Keys. It was a truly rewarding experience and a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season.
If you weren’t able to spend Thanksgiving with us on the Ultimate Adventure, don’t worry! We’ll be doing it again Christmas Day. Book now! We hope to see you and yours this holiday season!
