To celebrate the holiday season in style, Santa will take a break from the cold of the North Pole to cruise down the Sacramento River with families during 60-minute holiday cruises. During each cruise, guests enjoy the warm flavor of a fresh-baked cookie and the sweet aroma of a cup of hot chocolate with holiday music in the background. Tour-takers visit the meeting point of the Sacramento and American Rivers, taking in beautiful scenery and chatting with Saint Nick about how he keeps his red suit from fading in the laundry. Tours depart Saturdays and Sundays in December (excluding December 29–30) at 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4:30 p.m.; boarding time is 15 minutes prior to departure.

Beyond these cruises, Terry's team champions green practices through the Respect Our Planet initiative, which works to develop and promote earth-considerate practices such as using hybrid boats that draw power from the sun.
