New York Harbor Lighted Boat Parade, a 2.5-Hour Cruise aboard the Yacht Manhattan
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for New York Harbor Lighted Boat Parade was Saturday November 28, 2009 / 6:00pm.
The weather was cold. I wore casual clothes, but dressed warm. As the boat cruises Manhattan, you can go out on deck to view the sites. Quite cold, but definitely worth it. Once back inside the boat, they serve the most delicious hot chocolate. .Holiday Cruises on the Yacht Manhattan dress • Nov 24 2014 star this tip starred

The crew was great. The jazz trio was great. The snacks were great. The boat looked really Christmassy. My daughter and I really enjoyed it! There weren't many other boats in the parade (5 or so total) but it was the first of hopefully many years of the parade to come!

A complimentary beer, wine, or glass of Champagne, is included in the price of your ticket. Light hors d’ oeuvres will also be provided.
As if that isn’t enough to get you in the holiday spirit, this cruise will also feature live holiday jazz performed by the Classic Harbor Line Jazz Trio, Jacques Torres’ famous hot chocolate, and holiday cupcakes by Billy’s Bakery of Chelsea, NY!
Locals and visitors in New York City for Thanksgiving Day, may be taking in the Macy’s Day Parade, beginning their Holiday shopping, seeing the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, ice skating at Rockefeller Center or participating in any number of the iconic New York City Holiday-themed events.
Even though the air is crisp and cool, Harbor tours are still operating and locals and visitors alike are still able to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the entire NYC skyline by getting out on the Harbor. There will be no better way to do this than to step aboard one of the many tour boats in the Annual New York Harbor Lighted Boat Parade.
