A family outing fosters lifelong memories while giving houses the chance to molt in private. Leave your domicile to its own devices with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get one ticket to the Dana Point Harbor 37th Annual Boat Parade of Lights holiday cruise hosted by Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching (a $25 value). Choose between the following dates:

  • Friday, December 16, at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 17, at 7 p.m.<p>

Boats decked out in twinkling lights ferry passengers through gently lapping harbor waters during the Dana Point Harbor Boat Parade of Lights, now in its 37th year. During the 90-minute holiday cruise, visitors can sway to classic holiday tunes as they shake hands with inflatable snowmen running for North Pole mayor. Parade boats vie for awards including best animation, most colorful, and best use of lights as well as a kids’-choice award, tallied from official judging forms filled out by seafaring whippersnappers.

Though not included in today’s Groupon, alcoholic beverages can be procured from the cash bar ($1.50 for non-alcoholic drinks; $4.50–$7 for wine and beer). Visitors should arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the boat’s departure to avoid joining the parade in an impromptu swimming display.

Customer Reviews

The boat crew and check in staff were all knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great experience.

Keep your camera/phone charged and close by. I got some great shots. Could be cool, bring a jacket, usually real windy.

Didn't see a whale but did get to see plenty of dolphins. A nice relaxing outing for a great price.
