Sunset beach is a wonderful beach that is also pet friendly as many California beaches aren't as pet friendly. With a line of business and shops across the street from the beautiful pier, that extends into the ocean. You also have the option to take a stroll down its walking path and or roll down its nice bike paths alongside... More

Just 20 minutes North of Huntington beach is an unknown Jewel. Naples Gondolas are romantic for those occasions and the larger gondolas have room for everyone. A faily get together or a birthday or company function they have Gondolas for every occasion.

I've been on a few gondola rides and this one paled in comparison to most. The gondola itself was old and rickety, & the gondolier was more like a teenage surfer than an Italian host. The waters were beautiful, & yes, you can't go wrong with a California sunset, but Newport beats the Huntington experience by a canal a mile... More

Their kiosk is located in the Peter's Landing Marina at 16370 Pacific Coast Highway.. The Gondolas are handmade at Squero San Travaso, the oldest boat yard in Venice, Italy. They are very unique and attractive with carvings and... More

Last night I took my wife and our two young daughters on a Sunset Gondola voyage to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Having taken a couple gondola getaways at other Southern California locations I had an idea of what to expect. Beppi and everyone at Sunset Gondola exceeded those expectations. I first noticed their beautiful boats. Beppi has accumulated quite... More

I surprised my wife on our 33rd anniversary with a sunset gondola ride with Sunset Gondola. I had a Groupon for a 90 minute ride and it worked out great. It was beautiful weather and we had a wonderful time floating through Huntington Harbor looking at the HUGE houses and the HUGE boats that went with them. It was a... More

What a fantastic slow ride on these gondolas, with singing gondoliers, wine and snacks….you'll feel you're in Venice traveling the canals…..with the stars above and the water below….
