Best images from Boca Bash, the wild boating party on Lake Boca Raton

Thousands of eager boaters, jet skiers, kayakers, and paddleboarders are expected at Boca Bash 2024. Typically, it draws anywhere from 6,000 to 10,000 participants on Lake Boca.

But make no mistake — the Boca Bash boating party is all about boozing and bikinis.

What is Boca Bash?

Boca Bash is a once-a-year boating party held on Lake Boca Raton in, you guessed it, Boca Raton. The city of Boca itself has no official involvement with putting on the annual party on the water, and Florida actually has jurisdiction over Lake Boca.

The event originally started as a birthday bash for then-local Rockey Rossi, planned by his friends Brad Geisen and Scott McCure in 2007. The city asked them to cancel the party, which allegedly included hiring the rock band Nickleback to perform. The plans garnered enough attention though, and despite their cancellation, drew dozens of boaters to the lake.
