Don’t miss the last high-flying action of the 2016 season when the Blue Angels come home for their annual Homecoming Show on Nov. 11 and 12. Not only will the Navy’s precision flight team be flying over Pensacola, Florida on Veterans Day weekend, but they will also be celebrating the team’s 70th anniversary.
What’s the best way to watch the show? Aboard the Wild Hearts catamaran, of course! Meet us at the dock at 8:30 a.m. and enjoy a light breakfast as we sail away for a trip to the waters near Pensacola, where you can paddleboard, snorkel and dolphin watch from our spot in paradise. Enjoy views of a haunted lighthouse while the Blue Angels dazzle you with their incredible stunts. While you watch the show, our crew will prepare lunch.
Spaces are limited. Adult admission is $99 plus tax, and children age 12 and under are $69 plus tax. Call 251-981-6700 or reserve your spot online.
