Seeing the Blue Angels by boat is a spectacular way to see the most famous air squadron in America. If you book Back Bay Charters for this special event, you will be picked up at a convenient location and taken to the site for the best viewing. This can be either the Gulf of Mexico (for the July show) or Pensacola Bay (for the November show).
Additionally, the Blue Angels practice at the NAS Pensacola most Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting March 23rd. They fly at 11:30 and the practices last approximately 55 minutes. This can also be viewed by boat and can certainly include a lunch stop at Oyster Bar, Sunset Grill or Hub Stacey’s.
There is nothing like the sound and sight of the magnificent FA-18 jets as they fly in formation right above your head. Avoid the traffic, crowds and headaches by taking your own private boat cruise to see the best air show around. Be sure to book early as the July 16th show on Pensacola Beach and the November 12th homecoming show at NAS Pensacola will sell out quickly.
