Event Coverage – Saturday and Sunday

Credentialed media representatives are welcome to cover the event.  Please contact us in advance, so that we can prepare for your arrival, reserve parking spaces for media trucks, and line-up interviews. 

Press Boat – Sunset Parade on Friday evening

Credentialed media photographers and videographers are invited aboard our press boat or Escort Cruise to capture images of the Sunset Parade – a stunning armada of ships sailing down the Pacific Ocean at sunset. 

Space aboard the boats is limited and you must request a spot in advance.  Space confirmations will be sent out in late-August or early-September.
