We had a great day. It's frustrating calling for tickets-they refer you more than once to the dreaded Web/online-I like people over computers. Also literally no mention is made about parking when reserving. Park in the far lot, 2 blks straight from the pier-by the sand/ocean-two hours on street and by the wharf surprises us and new guests every time-tickets yikes-distressing passengers who rush to get to the boat and check in an hour early kills the mood early.

We saw so many dolphins and whales and seals! Best trip I’ve ever taken and worth every penny. I would suggest it to everyone I know And the boat was so comfortable. And for those interested, the bathroom situation is very normal. No sketchy travel sized bathroom!

What You'll Get

Jump to: Reviews | Can You See It From Space?

Today’s Groupon seeks to eliminate the banalities of holiday celebrations and traditions with a ticket to either the Newport Beach Boat Parade or Holiday Cruise for $20 (up to a $35 value). More than one million people enjoy the lights that light up LA to the point that spacemen in space can know that it's the holiday season. If you haven't experienced the holiday grandeur, come out and start a new family holiday tradition that doesn't involve animating a full-length feature film.

The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is a bona fide California classic that saves the average family thousands on piping and icing by fulfilling the need to completely decorate the city for the arrival of the holidays. This premier event bares witness to the stunning displays of electricity as it illuminates homes, yachts, docks, mailboxes, and the occasional pet. The Christmas Boat Parade lasts five magical nights from December 16 through December 20 and features the participation of hundreds of festive seafarers displaying their holiday pride against the dark and starry sky. Get in on the action and board a boat to be a part of the parade with today's Groupon.

Newport Landing’s capable ships offer cruises from December 7 through December 29 and participate in two cruises a night during the five nights of the parade. Like Santa climbing across the sky, you can scale across the water and witness the assembly of holiday cheer. Deem what decorations are present-worthy and which are coaltastic as you navigate a two-hour tour through a Newport snow globe of wonder and establish sweet maritime memories with loved ones and happy holiday strangers alike.


What the New York Times calls “one of the top ten holiday happenings in the nation” is a California holiday tradition adored by Yahoo! Travel reviewers, who give it four stars:

Can You See It From Space?

During the holidays, LA becomes so illuminated by festive lights that some astronauts and laymen believe you can see the display from space. Here’s a quick guide to what you can and cannot see from space:

The Great Wall of China
Can You See It From Space?: Not anymore. The wall was visible until it was torn down in 1989 in a fit of Berlin Wall–inspired wall deconstructions.

The Pyramids
Can You See It From Space?: Yes, with a pair of binoculars. If using two pairs of binoculars taped to each other, you can also see inside the pyramids.

The Seething Rage of Kenny Davis, Age 13
Can You See It From Space?: No.
