The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is the premier Christmas event not only for Orange County and Los Angeles but Southern California. With over 100 years of history the Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade is viewed by over a 1.5 million people each year.

Newport Bay comes alive with decorations. Homes, yachts, docks, whole landscapes are transformed into a magical holiday experience. Newport Bay begins its holiday decorations after Thanksgiving and by the first of December Newport Harbor is richly illuminated with thousands of lights and hundreds of themed estates.

The Christmas Boat Parade takes place over five nights in December with this year's parade taking place from Wednesday December 18-Sunday December 23. Hundreds of yachts, cruise ships, and water craft of all kinds participate in the parade. The parade will travel miles of waterfront estates during each evening viewing both estates and yachts in full décor.

Newport Landing has 8 ships that offer cruises during the entire month of December and participate in 3 cruises nightly during the parade. Christmas and holiday company parties, and after party cruises are our most popular clientele. The unique experience of being on the water viewing what the New York Times stated as "one of the top 10 holiday happenings in the nation" will make a lasting memory for any holiday event.
Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade & Holiday Cruises has received approximately 114 profile views in the last three months.
