SPECIAL FOLLOW BOAT SAILING:
Saturday, December 23 | 7:00 PM – 10:05 PM | *GRAND FINALE NIGHT*

Due to an overwhelming demand for Grand Finale Night tickets, we are opening a special FOLLOW Boat sailing on our new vessel, the Salish Explorer. This sailing will depart from Carillon Point in Kirkland, WA and follow the Christmas Ship to both scheduled performance stops.

THIS IS THE ONLY FOLLOW BOAT DEPARTING FROM CARILLON POINT.

In addition to sailing on our newest yacht style vessel, guests on this FOLLOW Boat will enjoy strolling carolers performing on both the first and second decks.

Given the features of this sailing, these FOLLOW Boat tickets are available at the LEAD Boat price.


TICKET PRICES:

A portion of all Christmas Ship™ Festival proceeds are dedicated to the Seattle Time’s Fund for the Needy.
