On Saturday, April 17, at 11:30 A.M., the only fully-rigged pirate ship in the world, the Jose Gasparilla, emerges at the south end of Hillsborough Bay followed by hundreds if not thousands of boats. The vibrant Gasparilla Flotilla then makes its way across Hillsborough Bay and into Seddon Channel (between Davis Island & Harbour Island) and the Gasparilla Invasion has begun!

Join The Bucket List Travel Group for a weekend of fun in Tampa, FL. This fun-loving group of singles and couples loves to blow off steam on weekend trips throughout the year. This year is off to a late start because of, well we all know why, but we’re optimistic things will be better by April. If you are tired of being cooped up in the house all winter, come on down for some good ole outdoor fun. This is not a prepaid event. You will need to submit your card using the payment link in the menu to the right on any other page (click “contact us,” for example) but this is only to guarantee the room. The hotel will not charge your card. We only have 10 rooms reserved so don’t delay. We will try to add more if there is demand but we cannot guarantee the hotel will have the space.
