Description:

Enjoy the finest in gourmet cuisine, surrounded by spectacular views on LA's most magnificent dinner cruise. Start with cocktails on deck then relax as your gracious crew transports you to a world of ease and luxury.

Watch the sun go down before enjoying a romantic dinner prepared fresh on board. Then dance to live music or watch the sights drift by from the outdoor decks.

Choose to depart from either Marina Del Rey or Newport Beach as you enjoy breathtaking views, delicious food and festive music!

Newport Beach boasts one of the largest small-boat harbors in the world, rimmed by the boat slips of the Balboa Peninsula on the south, the rocky shores of Corona Del Mar at the harbor's mouth, and bustling Mariner's Mile on the north shore.

Marina Del Rey is the world's largest man-made small craft harbor, carved from the natural estuary of Playa Del Rey. The resort area that has grown around this wonderful recreational resource includes several large parks and hosts many annual events, including an art festival, sailing regattas, and the Christmas Parade of Lights.

So whether you are looking for a romantic evening for two, a birthday celebration, or just want a memorable night out, we promise you an unforgettable experience!
