Dana Point's IlluminOcean, presented by the The Resorts of Dana Point, will electrify the world famous Dana Point Harbor with 40 nights of holiday lights.  Located in Dana Point Harbor and running from November 26-January 4, this wonderland by the sea features a brilliant spectacle of 18 oversized lighting sculptures with over 225,000 LED lights, and is free to the public for viewing nightly from sundown to 10pm on weeknights and 11pm on weekends.  From octopus and sharks, starfish and surfers, frolicking fish, leaping dolphins, and enchanted mermaids, the dazzling displays are highlighted by a towering glow-motion tree and light tunnels stretching longer than a football field and over a dozen gigantic lighted sculptures - some so large, visitors can walk through them to include the inside of a glowing 40-foot Blue whale's belly! 

Throughout the city, colorful banners will herald the new holiday spectacle, as lighted trees, decorated lamp posts and a brand new entrance light sculpture will lead visitors from Pacific Coast Highway to the event festivities. Stroll through the colorful collection of immersive attractions, every step is filled with vibrant sights and sounds.  On weekends, roaming street performers entertain crowds, glow merchandise shines and "Whale Eyes" 3D glasses give a must-see holographic look at this holiday spectacle.  See the lights.  Explore the sights.  This year and every year, only at Dana Point IlluminOcean.  For additional information, visit
