This was a fun and great socially distanced event for this coronavirus Christmas. Of course we would have been happier to see the boat parade, but I still feel this weeknight activity was well worth it. I plan to come back next year and hope there will be a parade to add to the experience

Alas, we didn't see any whales, although of course there's no guarantee of that. We did get to see a pod of over hundred dolphins with babies. Absolutely magical.

Had a blast. Didn’t see whales but it didn’t even matter as we saw a bunch of dolphins and a sun fish and loved being out on the water while enjoying a couple Bloody Mary’s!

It was a lovely outing. Booking it wasn't the clearest, even though instructions were sent in an email, they didn't quite match up with Newport landing's website. We were instructed to mark "two drinks" when making the booking online, but there was no option to do so on the Newport Landing's reservation page. I wrote in the memo/comments section that two drinks were included but there was no option to mark it on the Newport Landing's reservation page. There was no follow-up by Newport Landing and we did not receive the drinks that were included with our travelzoo booking.
