Huntington Harbour Holiday Lights Gondola Cruises. See the houses twinkling and all aglow for the annual Cruise of Lights event in which the multi-million dollar homes in the 6 navigable channels (including Sunset) can be viewed only in a gondola. The gondoliers offer rides nightly through the holidays. Choose a Sunset Cruise till 6 p.m. or Holiday Lights cruise till midnight each night. The gondola ride is slower, more intimate and ideal for romance or family & friends. Expert gondoliers will guide you on a fabulous tour through channels and bays the larger yachts can't navigate. It's a 5 Diamond holiday activity (wear warm clothes, blankets provided). Location: Peter's Landing and Marina, Huntington Beach (Pacific Coast Highway near Anderson). Offered each evening through New Years. Tickets
