Boat tours are an excellent way for people to see how similar marine and celebrity lifestyles are, as both movie stars and sea lions first socialize with their neighbors, then eat them for dinner. Witness such beautiful carnage with today's Groupon to Fun Zone Boat Company in Balboa. Choose between the following options:
• For $8, you get one adult ticket to a 90-minute Whole Harbor tour, which combines the Sea Lion tour and the Celebrity Home and Yacht Tour of Newport Harbor (up to a $19 value).
• For $3, you get one child ticket to a 90-minute Whole Harbor tour, which combines the Sea Lion tour and the Celebrity Home and Yacht tour of Newport Harbor (up to a $7 value).
The 90-minute Whole Harbor Tour cruises seafarers along the famed California coastline, offering peeks at sea lions in their natural habitat and views of celebrity homes and yachts. On the tour's first half, an eco-expert spills lurid undersea gossip, such as which high-class hot spots the sea lions love and why fishy schools have such low graduation rates. After a 15-minute intermission back at the dock, the combo tour launches yet again to spy the other coastal inhabitants in their plush natural environment. The celebrity-savant guide narrates the waterfront's star-studded history and points out the floating homes of fame. Tours launch every hour from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and, depending on the season, may continue running later in the evening.
Fun Zone Boat Company offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
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.
