It’s said that the happiest day in a boat-owner’s life is when they sell the boat or get to use it in a Viking funeral, praise Odin. Skip the hassles of ownership with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $29 for a one-hour runabout-boat rental (a $69 value)
- $55 for a two-hour runabout-boat rental (a $138 value)
A 16-foot runabout carries up to four adults around Newport Bay’s seal-dotted waters at a leisurely 5 mph. Customers may also apply the value of their Groupon toward an upgrade to a larger boat.
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.
