Description

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 décor as they prepare for the parade, as well as many of the estates competing in the Ring of Lights competition. Pre-Parade Holiday Cruises depart at 4:30 pm returning at 5:30 pm. And with the parade passing by just after 6:00 pm each night this allows for viewing the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade of Lights from shore shortly after returning.
