Don't expect to see boats lite-up for Boat Parade, you may see a handful on the way back to to dock. It doesn't get dark until the last 15-20 minutes of the cruise. ... continued

The trip was very fun but the 4:15 pm start is too early. It was still daylight & most the homes lights were off until the last 10-15 mins of the tour.
