    Stop by the float from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm to drop off your beads for the Knights of Sant' Yago Knight Parade.

    Parade staging bracelets will be handed out at bead drop off as well.  Historically, security around the staging area has not been strictly enforced; however, we'd recommend you pick up a bracelet to be safe.

    Ahoy Nauti-Mates!

    Join us for the 2022 Knights of Sant' Yago Knight Parade!

    Please register to let us know you'll be there.  If you are bringing a guest (limit of 2), make sure to select the appropriate registration type and pay the fee.  Also, be sure to read the guest information below - there are several changes for this year.

    Parade Position:  TBD

    Please note: Staging starts at 5pm, but the parade doesn't start until 7pm.

    Guest Fees:

    You may bring guests for $75 per person plus a $3 processing fee.  Your guest is not confirmed until the registration fee is paid and all necessary forms have been submitted.

    • Click here to submit the online guest waiver forms.  They can also be accessed on the website under the Events menu.  All forms must be submitted at least one week prior to the parade.
    • All guests (and their sponsoring member) must check-in at the float at 7pm for a quick welcome and safety briefing.  This meeting is mandatory for your guest to participate in the parade! Group pictures will immediately follow.
    • There is a limit on the number of guests allowed per parade.  If that limit is reached prior to payment being made, your guest's registration will be canceled.
    • If the guest list is full, guest cancellations must be processed prior to 1/28 to receive a refund.  In lieu of a refund, you may transfer a guest to a future parade in the same season.  

    When registering guests, you have several payment options:

    1. PayPal - Pay at the time of registration or choose "Invoice Me" to pay later.  If your guest is paying the fee themselves, they'll need to be with you so they can log into PayPal under their own account (or as guest) once you are redirected to PayPal's site.
    2. Zelle, credit card or paper check - Choose "Invoice Me" when checking out.  The YMKN member will receive an emailed invoice with instructions on how to submit payment.

    Ahoy Nauti Mates!

    It's time once again for the annual YMKN trip to Key West for Hemingway Days. 

    To keep things simple and allow for maximum flexibility, the Krewe does not manage this event, i.e., you need to make your own travel arrangements and lodging reservations. Typically, whoever goes will stay in touch via text or Facebook Messenger.

    Where to Stay (or try to get close by):

    Rose Lane Villas and Old Towne Manor

    Options for travel to Key West:

    This part is up to you depending on your preference and budget.  You can drive, fly or take the ferry from Fort Myers.

    Flights: From TPA, United and Silver have flights on the 20th and 23rd.  From PIE, Allegiant offers flights, but their schedule is limited so you'd have to fly on the 21st and 24th.

    Ferry:  There is a ferry from Fort Myers to Key West almost every day.

About us

Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus is a 501c3 organization dedicated to having fun while promoting philanthropy, environmental awareness and conservation of our beautiful Tampa Bay Area.  We do this through participation in the Gasparilla parades and related events, as well as a variety of hands-on activities with our charitable partners. 

Our mission is to promote Florida environmental awareness and conservation through friendly partnerships, education, charity sponsorship and community service. We volunteer and participate in various clean-up and conservation projects in the Tampa Bay area.  We also raise funds for the 1 Voice Foundation in order to enhance current programs for children & families fighting pediatric cancer.
