Call or reserve online and explore one of the most beautiful harbors and coastlines in the world today!

Newport Beach Harbor

With more than 840 acres of waterways, and 21 miles of frontage, Newport Beach Harbor offers endless breathtaking scenery to enjoy with friends and family.

You Are The Captain

There is NO BOATING LICENSE REQUIRED in order to captain your own Newport Beach boat rental. Our electric boat rentals are very easy to drive, and do not require any special training or licensing to operate and enjoy.

Hire A Captain

Our very popular licensed captains can take the wheel and let you enjoy a very memorable day on the water. You can still bring whatever you want aboard (Including food, drinks and alcohol) and the captain will take you wherever you want to go. They are very knowledgeable of our boats and hotspots in the harbor and ocean. Just ask them what’s popular and they will tell you all the great spots including waterfront restaurants, bathroom locations, markets on the water, and historic landmarks.
