Guests will enjoy a scary good cruise on a luxury yacht, along with complimentary beer and wine, a gourmet dinner buffet, DJ and dancing, interactive games, silent auction and more! Costumes are encouraged, and the best will win a $100 Visa gift card.

Boarding will begin at 7 p.m. at 603 Channelside Drive, Tampa. The ship will set sail at 7:45 p.m. and return to port at 9:45 p.m.
