If you were dreaming of a white Christmas, depending on where in the country you live, many of your dreams came true. While my family was visiting me for the Christmas holiday, their neighbors in the suburbs of Atlanta were experiencing snowfall.
If you’re anything like the Benowitzes or the Fury crew, then you might have been dreaming of a Christmas in the mid to upper 70’s with bright blue skies and a crystal clear ocean surrounding you. That’s exactly what our customers got aboard Fury on Christmas day.
It was business as usual with parasailing boats running every hour, snorkel trips, and our selection of Key West sunset cruises. We made the day extra special, however, with our Christmas Ultimate Adventure.
The Caribbean Fury set sail to the reef with a boatload of Christmas revelers excited for a morning of Key West snorkeling. Lucky for everyone, visibility at the reef has been phenomenal with up to 100’ of clarity. There was so much to see: yellowtail snappers, parrotfish, sergeant majors, and colorful coral.
For the sail out to Adventure Island, the crew served up a delicious Christmas luncheon complete with all the fixings to fuel everyone up for an afternoon of more fun. A fleet of parasail boats was at the ready to whisk our customers 300 feet in the air for a stunning view of our island paradise. Key West jet skis and kayaks were standing by and all of Adventure Island’s inflatable toys were waiting to be pounced on.
Of course, as soon as everyone’s water activities were complete, happy hour commenced with free-flowing beer and wine. It was a truly memorable Christmas. Isn’t it nice to return home to the cold and the snow with a glowing Key West tan!? Happy Holidays!
