The boats travel by beachfront restaurants such as La Palapa Griega, El Mar, Los Arbolitos de Cajeme, and Turquesa.

The parade will start before dusk with the line up in the Bahia. The lead boat will then take the parade around Indian Head and out to sea to loop back into the bay adjacent to El Mar and La Palapa Griega. A large loop will be executed there followed by further travel in the channel landward of Honeymoon Island to again loop in the area of Charly’s Rock. The return route will depend on seas and other conditions determined by the lead boat and pilot in charge. Eventually the boats will return to Marina San Carlos and dock for the night.

All boats are invited to “deck out” your vessels with holiday decorations and cruise in the Parade of Lights.
