You may upgrade for an additional fee.

Gondola Company of Newport provides hour-long Venetian-style gondola cruises across the bay and through the canals of Newport Beach. A highly trained gondolier will steer the floater through the scenic vistas of the area while you and three others bask in Italian music and cozy up under an Italian blanket. Each cruise includes sparkling cider, along with a basket of bread, cheese, salami, and screenplays written by former baseball players.

The gondoliers at Gondola Company of Newport are marriage proposal experts, facilitating message in a bottle marriage proposals (free) or other occasion message in a bottling ($10), such as openly declaring a love for "Message in a Bottle" by the Police.

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.

Customer Reviews

Even better than expected. What a wonderful time on the water. Our gondolier was superb. He sang to us as we went under the bridge and the whole experience was just great.
