Helmed by a skilled Coast Guard captain, Ship ‘N a Bottle’s 26-foot sailboat floats passengers across Newport Bay as they sip wine and nibble hors d’oeuvres during exhilarating 90-minute tours. Following an accommodating schedule, crews disembark from the Lido Village shopping center throughout the day, hosting noontime outings to greet the midday sun and late-night cruises to see if the moon actually changes colors when it thinks no one is looking. The 1967 sloop slices through waves along Newport Beach as each couple toasts new nautical memories with a bottle of pinot grigio or merlot, clearing palates with a plate of sopressata salami, asiago cheese, and flaxseed crackers. Ocean breezes waft over guests lounging on wooden benches as they take a narrated glide past Newport Bay’s historical landmarks, scenic vistas, and celebrity homes whose windows have been fitted with large sunglasses in order to throw off paparazzi.
