Bottle Boat Regatta

Wet, wacky and wild!

The De Soto Heritage Festival Bottle Boat Regatta is packed full of fun and will be held on the South side of the Palma Sola Causeway. Bring the family out to see teams compete in homemade boats of all shapes, sizes and themes!

Witness various teams of friends, co-workers and children who have spent countless hours fabricating an array of exotic-looking boats that float on hundreds of plastic bottles! If it floats, it races!

Teams row the bottle boats with paddles to get from the start to finish line. The heat is on as teams vie for a range of awards from fastest boat to best dressed crewe, and more!
