To celebrate the holiday season in style, Santa and a sing-along elf will take a break from the cold of the North Pole to cruise down the Sacramento River with families during 60-minute holiday yacht 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. Boarding time is 15 minutes prior to departure, and the limited seating is first come, first served.

Customer Reviews

Fun cruise for the price.
Christopher F. · March 4, 2016
A perfect holiday experience for our 4 year old granddaughter. Cookies and hot chocolate, face painting, sitting on Santa's lap, and riding down the river, all in one morning! The length of the trip was perfect for small kids, and Santa and his elves were so kid-friendly!
