What you'll do

**Price is not per person. The listed price is for a private boat** 6 guests max. You will get to experience Christmas Lights and the boat parade from the water. Many of the water front homes in Newport Beach put up amazing light displays that are only viewable from a boat on the harbor. Watch the lights as the dance on the waterfront. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays in true Orange County style. Learn about the local history and how the harbor was formed. You will also get to experience the local tradition of The 111th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade! The annual boat parade attracts 1.5 million people each year and is one of the largest in the world. The boat has a nice seating area for all 6 guests on the bow with a small table perfect for drinks and appetizers. Dress warm and bring a thermos of your favorite hot drink as it will be chilly on the water at night. *Jackets and blankets are highly recommended
