Good fun for 90 minute tour.

We used a groupon to get a good rate on an 8 person Duffy rental. I only rate this as average because the Duffy was definitely on the old side, looked tired and was a lot noisier... read more

Celebrated a birthday on a six person party boat. Staff was good and handled several groups at a time. Bring your own food and drinks. Table on the boat was perfect. Easy to drive. Plexi-glass in front and back of boat to break the wind. Minimum speed only. 90 minute ride was perfect to get an overall view of the... More

Really enjoyed my tour of Newport! The guides were helpful and very kind! Make sure you arrive on time so that others are not waiting for you.

We bought a coupon through Travelzoo and took the family, all adults, for a ride through the harbor. The weather was great, the boat was clean, and the staff was very friendly and extremely helpful for the novice navigator. Definitely a re-do.

There were 8 of us celebrating my son's birthday last Sunday afternoon on the electric boat. It was easy to reserve and had plenty of room. You can bring your own drinks and food....we had wine and appetizer's. The bay was beautiful and we enjoyed boating around and seeing the big homes and even bigger boats. We had a wonderful... More

I've tried to call this "business" 7-8 times and they rarely pick up their phone. They have a deep phone tree. they need to have a person pickup the phone. I'd suggest patronizing another business.

First of all this place was a little difficult to find. It seemed they moved office between when I made my reservation and the evening of. No one let me know that. The new location was not well marked, there was an office suite with no sign so getting there was a little frustrating. However once we actually got going,... More

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
