Holiday Dinner Cruise

Join Seattle’s Annual Tradition of Holiday Parade of Lights!

Ring in the holiday cheer aboard a Waterways yacht! Join the celebration of the annual Holiday Parade of Lights on the lakes of Seattle for a dinner cruise. Sip on a frosty cocktail or a hot cocoa from our Hot Cocoa bar! The kids can write their Letters to Santa or watch the twinkling lights from our spacious open air deck.

Attire is at the discretion of each guest. A sweater or jacket is recommended for cooler weather when viewing from the outdoor decks.
