It was a hot day inland San Diego county, but when we got to our gondola and out on the water, even though it was the middle of the afternoon, it was quite pleasant. Our gondolier was very friendly and informative. It was a great pre-birthday activity!

My daughter and son-in-law gave me a birthday Gondola ride which was sooo much fun! The two couples and our 2 year old grand daughter pushed off an hour before sunset with Francisco on the oar and it was a magical hour that went way to fast. Francisco was friendly and gregarious without being intrusive, and provided interesting commentary and... More

A group of friends and I enjoyed a gondola ride in mid- May. We had the large gondola that seated 7-14 people. It was spacious and very enjoyable. We had two gondoliers who were friendly and one of them sang beautiful songs for us. It was a stunning, peaceful day! The only downside was that it was over too soon!... More

We joined friends for an afternoon Gondola ride at Coronado Cays on Memorial Day 2014 and had a wonderful time. Our "captain" was friendly, informative and has a great voice.(Enriquico). We would all recommend this experience. We will go again! Thank you The McCorkle's

Our employees gave a a gift certificate to the Coronado Gondola Company. WOW what a gift. It was like we were in Venice. The best part was we had a bottle of champagne and the Gondolier was a wonderful tenor who sang to us while sailing through the Cays. This is definatly a must do for San Diego.

It's so relaxing to glide around the canals at the CAYS with your gondolier and spouse/friends/honey. We went in the early afternoon, weather was perfect, so was our gondolier. We chatted the whole time. Couldn't believe it ended so soon!

We happened to get the idea to take a gondola ride while visiting San Diego because of Groupon. I am so glad we did this. Such a romantic experience and our gondolier Giovinni was wonderful. He was able to give us background information on the area and the history of Coronado island. We were able to enjoy our beverage of... More

I surprised my wife with a gondola ride to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. Our gondolier was Mike and he was outstanding. At one point he even sang us a song in Italian which we really thought was special. We went on a sunset cruise which we really recommend.

Eric was an amazing guide and I thank the entire staff for this absolutely breathtaking experience. What more could I ask for? The company, the wine, the view and lets not forget the singing all of what made this a memorable experience, one to be remembered. Thank you all.

Even better than expected! Prompt, courteous, professional, and well-prepared (thankful for extra blankets!). Our gondolier, Enrico, serenaded us with his amazing voice. A lovely surprise for us! This was a great way to celebrate our 10th anniversary!
