How was your experience?
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. Same with the homes in the harbor. On a positive note, you will miss the massive traffic and parking congestion the actual Boat Parade (6 pm) creates. Note: $25 for parking. The boat was comfortable, drinks and snack offerings accommodating. Crew pleasant.
