We cruise the waterfront to enjoy the light show, while also taking in the landmarks that make the city so very special. This year we will be offering a tour on  the 24th and the25th, special pricing applies. You can have some fun viewing the lights with our special 3D glasses.

Nights can be on the cool-side, so make sure to dress appropriately for the weather. This trip lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
