Newport Fun Tours is a decent duffy boat rental spot in Newport Beach, but I have to say that these duffy boats are extremely slow, so slow that if you ever got carried out to sea or have someone having a medical emergency on the boat, you'd be almost out of luck getting immediate help. The boats are also older... More

PLEASE READ AND CONSIDER YOURSELF. I don't really write 'review' , but today they made to write it. BEWARE. Ripping off awareness for your future visit. there are other good service locations, so don't make a MISTAKE as i did. What is a good with a deal if they charge you and eventually pay same or even higher than normal... More

Laid back atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Boat was an electric boat that was fun and easy to use out in the waters. We really had a great time and the equipment is well maintained so no worries about the boat failing out in the water somewhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and it was a delightful way to sight... More

They have a discount on duffy boats during the week, you can take the boat out for two hours for the price on one hour. You will need at least an hour and half to do the full loop around the bay. The boat was easy to drive.

Have been renting from Newport Fun Tours for years. Almost always with a Groupon to save a few dollars. This time was no exception. I rented a paddle board and my friend a kayak. Both for 2 hours. The staff was very helpful as this was my first time on a paddle board. Next time you are in Newport and... More

I have taken about a dozen Duffy boats out through Newport Fun Tours with no problems but today was a disaster. I rented a Duffy for my family along with my two month old baby. About half way through riding around the bay the boat's engine stopped working. We had to wait 30 minutes for someone from the company to... More

Great deal for SUP rental. I hadn't yet purchased my Groupon, as I wanted to make sure they were open midweek. They still honored the Groupon rate. Small parking structure is at the location, but there is also a city lot two blocks away. In the office we were shown a map of the waterways and told approximately how long... More

We have come here many times over several years with groupons. You do have to book a while out and weekends are hard, but we have always had it work out. Can be a bit crazy at the check-in, but it has always been a great experience and have never had a problem with a boat. Staff knows what they... More

We rented an electric boat from Newport Fun Tours. It was far more tired than the one showing on the web page. It goes to show that you get what you pay for. Duffy Boats is only a few blocks away costs a bit more but they know what they are doing.

Rob was a great tour guide. He gave us (family of four with two kids, 11 and 12) enough time to get comfortable with the Segways and took appropriately timed breaks. We went at a leisurely pace and enjoyed learning more about Newport. The route was along all the beautiful, unique homes so if you're into HGTV, this is your... More
