Departing each night of the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Of Lights, Newport Landing’s pre-parade cruise is a great way to view all ships in full decor as they prepare for the parade, as well as many of the estates competing in the Ring of Lights competition.

And with the parade passing by just after 6:00pm each night this allows for viewing the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade of Lights from shore shortly after returning.
