Holiday Lights Cruise

Feel the Magic of the Season on a Seattle Sailing Charter's Christmas Cruise

Lift your spirits and stay warm and dry with a Christmas Cruise aboard our Power Yacht!

The Christmas Cruise has been a Seattle tradition since 1949 when Argosy Cruises created the Christmas Ship Festival™. Today, a Christmas cruise is a parade of lighted boats who come together throughout the season to celebrate the holidays, sing, and enjoy the end of the boating season in Seattle. Choirs aboard the Christmas cruise ship sing 20-minute performances at various destinations, all broadcast via state-of-the-art speaker system. On shore, thousands of people gather around roaring bonfires anticipating the arrival of the Christmas Ship and flotilla of decorated parade boats.

Enjoy the warmth and convenience of Splendido, our 40-foot Legacy power cruiser. The cozy cabin has large panorama windows to view the spectacular scene of the Christmas cruise: dozens of boats, dressed in their finest Christmas lights. If weather permits, don your Santa hats and take in the sights and sounds up forward on our spacious deck or up on our fly bridge. In any weather, bring your holiday cheer for a spectacular event on the water!

Cost for 3 to 4 hour private Christmas cruise is $650—includes hot toddies and gourmet appetizers/desserts. Maximum 6 people.
