Year Founded: 1979    

City: St. Petersburg, FL   

Members: 100    
Only Male Members    

Goals: Have Fun

"We never have any fun!"

Additional Information: Our founding fathers fashioned our organization after the Krewes of New Orleans. Our officers, midshipmen and seamen wear the uniforms of the British navy of the 1800’s.

Because we are seamen at heart, King Neptune (the Greek Poseidon), the mythical god of the seas, inspired our name, "Ye Mystic Krewe of Neptune."

Neptune's trident, the staff of power, signifies the bond of fellowship that pervades our organization.

Although we are independent from other similar organizations in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, we are affiliated with the Inter Krewe Council whose roster includes many other local “Krewe”.

Charities: While the objective of the Krewe is merely to have fun our members do participate in other civic, charitable and religious organizations apart from the Krewe.

Open Membership: Yes
