What You'll Get


For centuries, gondolas have been a popular means of transportation through Venice, second only to floating discarded da Vinci masterworks. Set sail with this Groupon.

90-Minute Private Gondola Cruise for Up to Four (Up to $160 Value)

During Sunset Gondola tours, a skilled gondolier guides up to four guests through Pacific waters while pointing out elements of Huntington Harbour's rich architecture. Seated in imported Venetian vessels, guests indulge in BYO snacks and beverages accompanied by provided blankets, cups, ice, and a wine opener. Gondoliers enhance romantic moments by serenading guests in Italian or Elvish and body blocking the sun to provide mood lighting.

About Sunset Gondola


For centuries, lovebirds have toured Venice's picturesque canals on gondola rides. And since 2006, couples have headed out onto the calm waters of Huntington Harbor aboard the same iconic Venetian boats, courtesy of Sunset Gondolas. To recreate the Italian experience as thoroughly as possible, the company's fleet is made up entirely of gondolas imported from Italy—and is the only company in Southern California with that distinction. Moreover, their gondoliers sport traditional striped shirt, and serenade passengers upon request. What's more, they're experts at their craft. Two of the boatswains have won the US Gondola Nationals for their skill in the authentic, 37-foot boats—Bepi, who won in 2012, and Stefano, who won in 2013.

Despite their prowess, however, the gondoliers often blend into the background during rides, letting the California scenery take center stage. From their seats, couples or convivial groups drink in views of the area's Venetian-style islands, canals, and bridges, all while snacking on picnic spreads and wine they brought along, or the chocolate-dipped strawberries provided in some packages. The gondoliers can tailor the rides to special occasions, too, including proposals and wedding ceremonies.
