Fun Zone Boat Company

In 1948, Fun Zone Boat Company’s predecessors began to whisk passengers on speedboat rides and lend out boats and paddleboards to visitors and locals in Newport Beach. Today, the business’s fleet of red, white, and blue vessels chugs up and down California’s coastline on guided tours and charter trips. Plush benches and open-air decks afford unobstructed views of sea lions lounging on Bell Buoy and Catalina Island in the distance. The boats’ captains also serve as guides, and pepper tours with anecdotes about celebrities’ mansions and diamond-studded sand castles. Charter trips double as an entertaining setting for catered corporate functions and birthday parties for 49–149 guests.


Reviews

Got to see some lazy sea lions and plenty of beautiful homes and yachts owned by Nicholas Cage, Donald Bren, the Wrigley family, etc

Jessica F., Yelp, 10/15/11

The boat is tiny, but seats a lot of people comfortably. The tour itself is a bit on the dry side, but full of factoids you would have never guessed.
