Marina Boat Rentals

Marina Boat Rentals’ diverse fleet of runabouts, deck boats, and electric boats enables hydrophiles of all stripes to sail the placid waters of Newport Bay. Before embarking from Balboa Peninsula's amusement-lined promenade, captains-for-a-day are briefed on rules for safe operation of their vessel and given a detailed map of the area. Twenty-seven square miles of open water provide plenty of safe space to navigate along the shores and islets lined with celebrity homes and enclaves of celebrity seals.

With boat speeds peaking at 5 mph, crews can expect a leisurely ride, ideal for lounging onboard or winning staring contests against passing tugboat captains. Additionally, the staff outfits all the boats with an AM/FM stereo, and invites guests to bring food and drinks aboard.

Very pleasant people to work with. Parking is easy across the street at the beach. Newport Harbor is as gorgeous as ever. Will definitely book again. To get the desired boat you should call weeks in advance for reservations.
