The 53rd annual San Diego Bay Parade of Lights takes place on Sunday, December 10, 2023 and Sunday, December 17, 2023. Come aboard a Flagship cruise for an up-close view of the dazzling holiday boat parade.

Approximately 80 festively decorated boats will be on display. The theme this year is "Christmas Traditions around the World." Organizers anticipate a crowd of more than 100,000 San Diego residents and visitors will watch from the shores. On both evenings, we'll be out on the bay offering passengers a one-of-a-kind viewing experience from the convenience, comfort and luxury of a Flagship yacht.

Spectator Cruise: Choose the Parade of Lights Spectator Cruise for a festive narrated harbor tour along the parade route. Boarding begins at 4:30PM. Snack bar service available with wine, cocktails, local beer and light refreshments for purchase on board.

Dinner Cruise: On these two dates, our December Nights Dinner Cruise will depart earlier to allow for viewing of the Holiday Parade. View details.

The captain parked us right on the boat route for dinner and would turn back and forth every few minutes to make sure both sides of the table had viewing time of the lit up boats.
