Where else can you celebrate a world championship on boats cruising down the water past thousands of fans? It's only Tampa Bay and that's exactly what the Buccaneers did on Wednesday as they celebrated their Super Bowl LV victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Players and their families were about Starship cruiseliners as they sailed down the Hillsborough River past thousands of fans on the shoreline who gathered outside to greet them in a socially distant way. Each player was more grateful than the last for the show of support as they cheered back and forth from the boats as the parade made its way south. There were four main boats, including "The Red Pearl" which housed players like Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette, Lavonte David, Devin White, Ndamukong Suh and others, leading the way for the rest of the team. There was also the "Grave Digger" boat full of the secondary and defensive line and then another filled with the offensive lineman and receivers. Quarterback Tom Brady was on his own boat and he even tossed the Vince Lombardi trophy to his trusted target Cameron Brate at one point throughout the afternoon.

The day culminated in a ceremony where both General Manager Jason Licht and Head Coach Bruce Arians spoke to players, families and onlookers alike. To see some of the best moments from the day, see below for a social media recap of what went down.
