Newport Beach Boat Parade 2013


The 2013 Newport Beach Boat Parade is the premier Christmas event not only for Orange County and Los Angeles but Southern California. This is the 105th running of the parade and this year's theme is Surf, Sand, & Santa. The Newport Christmas Boat Parade is one of the largest holiday events in the country and has over 1.5 million people viewing the parade each year. Approximately 250 ships and watercraft of all kinds participate in the parade along with many of the bayside estates that compete in their own holiday contest called the "Ring Of Lights". Cruise Newport Beach offers three cruises each night of the parade. Each cruise views not only the parade but travels in the parade viewing the many festivities and estates lining the bay along with all of the ships participating in the parade. Get the full parade experience without the need to own your own boat and spend hours decorating for the parade. The parade takes place over 5 nights from the third Wednesday in December to the third Sunday.
This year's parade is Dec 18, 2013 through Dec 22, 2013.

Second cruise departs at 7:15 pm returns at 8:15 pm- The entire cruise time is in the parade viewing all the ships as they travel in the parade as well as all of the decorated landscapes that line the bay. This cruise time is great for those getting off work or grabbing a bite to eat before coming out to enjoy that parade. Also still fairly early this is also a good option for families with kids and those that would prefer not to make it a late night.

Third cruise departs at 8:30 pm returns at 10:00 pm- Viewing the parade as it travels across the bay back up the Balboa Peninsula reaching Bay Island which is the starting and ending point for the parade each night. The formal parade passes the finish line around 9:15 with last ships crossing about 9:30. The cruise leaves the finish line and travels to some of the best light displays lining the bay and enjoys the ships participating in the parade up close as they return to their respective docks.
