Q:

I just purchased this groupon and I wanted to use it for a time tomorrow. Is it possible to take the groupon code and book through the rental website?

Justin B.  asked on  Sep 3, 2013

A:

You can find your Groupon by signing into your Groupon account at www.groupon.com/mygroupons and clicking "View Voucher" next to the Groupon in your account. Once you download your Groupon, you'll see the instructions for redeeming it listed under "How to use this."

If you need further assistance, please contact us at Groupon support.

Q:

Do you rent boats that can go out of the harbor? I'm interested in cruising the coastline of Newport and Laguna. Thanks.

Shelley G.  asked on  Aug 31, 2013

A:

Shelly, yes, we have three types of ocean boats, two of which are limited to the Newport coastline. Our Boston Whaler, however, may be taken as far south as the San Clemente pier and as far north as Huntington Harbor. Please see our website for more information and photos of these boats.

Q:

Where do I park?

David K.  asked on  Aug 30, 2013

A:

David, please see our website, newportbeachboatrentals.com, click on "Location" and you will find a parking map of the area. Parking is plentiful on weekdays but it can be a bit of a challenge on summer weekends, in which case its best to allow a little extra time. Those who are familiar with the area tell us they often park on Balboa Island and take the 3-minute ferry ride across the bay to our location.

Q:

Will the boat hold 3 adults and 2 children?

Jan S.  asked on  Aug 30, 2013

A:

Jan, it all depends on the total weight of your group. The boat's official capacity is for 4 average size adults. If the children are small, they probably can be accommodated. If not, you can always upgrade to a 6-passenger deck boat for only $10.

Q:

Is this the boat same in the advertise picture? And does this boat can go fast?

Nhan B.  asked on  Aug 29, 2013

A:

Nhan, yes, we have 8 runabouts that are identical to the one shown in the photo. Sorry, these boats are governed to the harbor speed limit of 5 mph. The boats are primarily used for sight-seeing (all the beautiful homes and yachts as well as the wildlife) from the water.

Q:

Hi, I never drive boat before. what should I do before buy this. I want to try drive boat.

linh v.  asked on  Aug 28, 2013

A:

Hello Linh, if you can drive a car, you can drive a runabout. The harbor speed limit is 5 mph so it is pretty easy to maneuver around to see all the beautiful homes and yachts on the water.

Q:

I was about to purchase this deal, however, what stopped me was I didn't see a calendar showing available days and times??? If I purchase this, how will I know my weekend and time of choice is available? Tried calling the phone number but keep getting an answering machine.. Also, for the $55 deal, can you get a boat with the little table in the middle and a top for cover. (Lunch will be eaten on the boat)...Please advise. Thanks!

angelina m.  asked on  Aug 28, 2013

A:

Angelina, sorry about the phone situation... it's always a little crazy on the first day or two of a new Groupon feature. With regard to your first question, all days are available except those noted in the fine print (Labor day weekend & 5 nights of the Christmas boat parade). You'll have from now to mid-March of next year to use your Groupon. Both the $29 deal and the $55 deal is for one or two hours on the runabout. The boat with the table in the middle and the canvas top is either an 8 or 12-passenger electric boat, which would be either a $20 or $30 per hour upgrade depending on the size of the boat.

Q:

I have a 35lb dog with her own lifejacket. Can she ride in the boat with me?

Margaret L.  asked on  Aug 28, 2013

A:

Margaret, yes, she can ride in one of our runabouts or deck boats, however, not in our electric boats as they are fully carpeted.

Q:

Hello, If I purchase the $55 Groupon that has a value of $138, may I apply the $138 value toward a larger boat rental that normally costs $198 by paying the difference in the value? In this case, the additional cost would be $60. Thank you!

Paul T.  asked on  Aug 27, 2013

A:

Hi Paul, yes, the $55 Groupon has a value of $138 which can be applied toward a 2 hour rental any boat. If a 2-hour rental of a larger boat comes to $198, your additional cost would be $60.
