Boat Parades and New Years Eve w/ Harbor Breeze Cruises | @HarborBreezeC #Christmas #ad

Christmas Lights

In California, we pride ourselves on our laid-back beach lifestyles.  During Christmas time we do things just a little different than most of the world.  We decorate our boats as well as our houses.

Last weekend, my family was invited to enjoy 2 of our local Boat Parades, Naples and Long Beach Harbors.  While across the world, people decorate their houses with Christmas lights, here in California, we decorate our boats too.

I usually take my family to watch the parades from the beaches but this year, we joined Harbor Breeze Cruises, our favorite whale watching fleet, on the vessel the Christopher located next to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

The 3 hour cruise included trips around the Long Beach harbor with the Queen Mary and continued down to Naples in beautiful Alamitos Bay.

The parade route was lined with colorful lit trees floating on the water.

The houses and boats in Naples are decorated for the season and it is a unique experience seeing them from the water.

We enjoyed hot chocolate for the kids and an adult refreshment for adults along with cookies and snacks.  While we saw the Triumphant, the Christopher's sister ship float by with it's charted party on board.

The ride back to the dock brought us along-side the majestic Queen Mary.

We enjoyed the boat parade as we have been enjoying Harbor Breeze whale watching for years.  Did you know they do more than whale watching?
