Overview

A relaxing 1-hour Gondola cruise across Alamitos Bay and thru the enchanting Naples Canals. Your Gondolier will gently row you and yours as you sip your favorite bevvies and experience the hidden gem of SoCal! Whether a romantic date for two or a festive "Pizza Cruise" for up to 14-guests on our Caorlinas or anything in between... We excel at celebrating whomever and whatever you're in the mood for! Ciao...for now!!!

What a lovely way to start a date night, a quiet, peaceful ride around Naples Island. The gondolier, Gerard, was professional and friendly. Thank you for a very special time.

Took a ride for our anniversary celebration. Brought along pizza and wine but would suggest eating beforehand or bringing a non-fussy appetizer or dessert. Eric was easy going and gave us a bit of history about the boats/rowing. Once underway he guided us smoothly through...More

Great way to spend a relaxing time. We had a lovely afternoon ride through Nap,Es. With drinks and snacks you can sit back and relax as you float through the canals.

It's $100 for a couple for the cruise, not including gratuity for your Gondolier. You get to bring whatever beverages you'd like to enjoy. And, yes...you should call ahead, even if you're looking for a same day booking... More
