Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the ocean, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man's triumphs with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a gondola cruise for up to four people from Gondola Company of Newport in Newport Beach (up to a $115 value).

Meandering through Newport's picturesque ocean-water canals, guests serenely float aboard Gondola Company of Newport’s fleet of Venetian-style boats gently rowed by an expert gondolier. Nestled under thick blankets, guests swoon to romantic Italian music and dig into an overflowing snack basket full of bread, cheese, and salami throughout the one-hour tour. Groups propose toasts to a relaxing ride or a promotion at the monocle factory with the supplied sparkling cider as they listen to the bay gently lapping against the rustic wooden vessel. Maneuvering under bridges, a friendly gondolier captains the romantic evening, facilitating message-in-a-bottle proposals or high-speed manatee chases to make for an unforgettable evening.

Gondola Company of Newport

On a shimmering bay, a trained gondolier rows a happy couple along on a romantic evening. Having conferred with the gentleman before the trip, he slips a special message inside a bottle and discretely places it in the water. After turning the boat around, he asks the lady to retrieve the bottle that, unbeknownst to her, contains her marriage proposal. After tears of joy and a celebratory kiss, the engagement is confirmed, and the gondolier rows the lovebirds ashore.

This tale is not stolen from the pages of an Italian love story, but rather, it’s an unforgettable moment that Gondola Company of Newport helps make possible. A team of professionally trained gondoliers ferries guests through the bay and canals of Newport Beach, creating an intimate mood for special occasions, such as proposals, anniversaries, and birthdays.


A must if you want to do something special with that someone special!!
