The event brings together locals and recreational boaters from all over the country to participate in a host of activities during boat week and the opportunity to boat across Northwest Florida's beautiful emerald green waters.
The Emerald Coast Poker Run, scheduled for August 18th was voted "The Best Poker Run in the United States" by Power Boat Magazine for two years in a row.
