Maps & Directions

Deck the Hulls, A Christmas Boat Parade on Skull Creek returns on Saturday, December 9, 2023 at 6 PM.  This exciting waterfront holiday event is sponsored by Americas Boating Club in conjunction with Presenting Sponsor Safe Harbor Marina Skull Creek.  Participating boaters will compete for prizes as they dazzle spectators with a variety of festively decorated boats, costumed crews and holiday music.  This year we are featuring more boats than ever, and our "right along the shoreline" parade route will bring boats within feet of the docks, particularly the waterfront restaurants.  The 7 mile parade route begins in Port Royal Sound, (adjacent to Dolphin Head/Pine Island) and proceeds south past Ribaut Island, Safe Harbor Skull Creek Marina, Mariner's Point, Villages of Skull Creek, Bayshore, The Boathouse, Dockside and Hudson's.  The boats will turn around just before the bridge near Hilton Head Harbor and the parade will end back at Safe Harbor Skull Creek Marina.  There are plenty of public viewing locations.  A complete list can be found on our website at  Boater registration begins October 1st.  For more information, to register or download a brochure, please visit our website at  You can also follow us on fb at Deck the Hulls A Christmas Boat Parade, or you can contact us at [email protected]
