We met at our destination a little early and were surprised with the offer of 'sure take your boat out now," With a thorough explanation on how to run the darling Duffy... off we puttered ( come on... it's electric) into the beautiful Newport Beach Harbor.. we followed the 'map' provided.. for an hour and a half...shared some snacks and...

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

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
