This was beautiful & romantic...great experience for my husband & I. We stayed at the Loews Coronado where we were able to just walk outside to board. They will gladly chill your beverage of choice. We were also surprised with chocolate covered strawberries for our trip. Truly wonderful!

Doing this at night during the Christmas season is beautiful. All the lights and the clear sky to see the stars. I would do this again and again.

Living in San Diego, I have a list of places I take first time visitors. I didn't know about this attraction until recently. We did a daytime gondola ride, but they also offer sunset ones. Great way to see another part of San Diego.

It will definitely put you in the mind of Venice. You circle the million dollar homes of Coronado, along the San Diego Bay for 50 min. Some of the Gondoliers sing which makes it even more nice.

This experience was a surprise from my husband. Who would have known you could take a gondola ride in Southern California! The gentleman who piloted the boat was very nice, and even sang to us. His singing and the boat ride were fantastic. They take your picture which is free to download from their website which is a nice touch.... More
