Join the crew from Newport Fun Zone Boats as we meet some of the local wildlife and take a peek at some of the notable celebrity homes, filming sites, and yachts of Newport Harbor.
We'll view the California Coastline, Catalina Island and The Wedge created by the backside of all that barged in rock. We arrive at the Bell buoy about 1 mile off shore and spend a few moments viewing the resident Sea Lion Colony. While there, the captain swings the boat around to scan the horizon for passing whales. (February being the best month to spot the migrating giants, but we might get lucky!) With the right sunglasses, we can see the bright Garibaldi fish from the boat. Picking up speed, we'll cruise back to the jetty and back to the lake-like water of upper Newport Bay.
Celebrity highlights include sites related to John Wayne, Nick Cage, Roy Rodgers, Lauren Bacall, Dean Koontz, Shirley Temple, JC Penney, George Burns, the Rat Pack and many more. Clever boat names and stories abound! You'll head back to land for a group lunch before heading back to our host hotel.
