There are less than 2 weeks before the Florida Powerboat Club’s 24th annual Emerald Coast Poker Run! If you haven’t already registered for this monster of a poker run then you still have time to pre-register. It’s the largest summer poker run in the nation. So make sure you take time off to enjoy this one-of-a-kind run in the Florida Panhandle where you’ll find an unparalleled number of performance and luxury boaters, partiers, and enthusiasts just looking to have some fun on the water!

The Florida Panhandle offers incredible boating in both the protected bay waters and in the Gulf.  Incredibly beautiful sugar sand beaches, emerald green water, and numerous places to stop along the way make this a must-not-miss event.

But this run does more than just party. The FPC’s Emerald Cost Poker Run annually raises over $150,000 for charities and youth organizations making it the only run to even come close to hitting that mark year after year. Bring your boat, make a difference, and most importantly, HAVE SOME FUN!

Here’s a message from the man himself, Stu Jones.


Destin & Fort Walton Beach are set to host one of the most popular summer boating events, the Emerald Coast Poker Run, which historically raises over $150k annually to benefit youth organizations.

Boat Week Festivities kick off with a Tuesday Mardi Gras boat parade, followed by parties every evening through the weekend! Whether you run a big power cat, or a single–outboard v–bottom, this poker run caters to all boaters from all walks of life who travel hundreds of miles to attend!

We promise great entertainment, soft sandy beaches, beautiful waterways and more bikinis and fun than you can imagine! It’s just a month away, so don’t miss out on the best accommodations and new dockage locations! Call the FPC office, Mon through Friday to register now!

Thank You,
Stu Jones
