Private serenades are usually uncomfortable in taxis or during corporate board meetings but become romantic when conducted on a long boat. Bask in the amiable ambiance of song and watercraft with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a 90-minute gondola cruise for up to four people from Sunset Gondola in Huntington Beach (a $160 value).

Sunset Gondola's Venetian vessels travel the horizons of Huntington Harbour, summoning a sensory blast of Italian amore to enhance any date or special event. Today's deal dishes up a gondola cruise for four aboard a 37-foot vessel, created in the boatyards of Venice's Squero di San Trovaso. From the gondolier decked out in the requisite striped shirt and ribbon-trimmed hat to the Italian-made gondolas, every detail is designed to simulate the boot-shaped country’s most romantic tradition, outside of feeding your partner nibbles of turkey meatloaf. Guests can also enjoy complimentary blankets, ice, cups, and a bottle opener to tend to BYOB snacks and beverages while the gondolier croons sweet siren songs to set the mood.

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.
