Southern Boating

    Another block of dates you need to mark on your calendar is April 8-11, 2015, when the 2nd Annual Viking Key West Challenge family fishing tournament takes place. Last year the inaugural event celebrated our 50th Anniversary and this year we have more fun times scheduled for the entire family including two great days of fishing, a kid’s dockside tournament, a lay day pool party and barbeque, daily prizes, plenty of fun activities, and a bunch of great looking trophies to celebrate your participation. Get started by checking out the Viking Key West Challenge website or on facebook, reserve a slip at your favorite Key West marina and then email us at marketing@vikingyachts.com to register with us. Slips are limited so don’t delay.

      Parade starts East on the New River from downtown (Fort Lauderdale) and North on the Intracoastal to Pompano Beach.
