Great value, fun outing (rented the duffy boat for 8) - tooled around the harbor for a couple hours, was a wonderful way to see the sights. Boats are nothing fancy, but comfortable and easy to handle. Staff let us know about the Daily Deal which was a huge bonus. Parking right at the site was helpful. Seemed like they could have used more dock hands - had to wait a bit to get boat ready after the group in front of us. All in all it was a great outing and would definitely do it again, or book other adventures thru NFT

We haved enjoyed the Duffy’s many times and it never fails to please! Most
Organised and professional reservation system, kind staff and friendly and knowledgeable dock crew, beautiful and clean equipment! What’s not to love?

A little disappointed in the shape of the boat. The drivers seat wobbled all over and the boat was neglected and second rate. That said it got us around the harbor, but at times seemed to slow a bit.

Purchased a Groupon for an 8 passenger boat (still not cheap at $71.50). When you finally get someone to call you back (can take all day) they immediately tell you that the 8 passenger books out 2 months in advance, WHY don't they advertise this on the Groupon? So now its double the money as they conveniently have plenty of the more expensive boats. We got there and paid the full price (groupon is worthless here) $150.
First thing we noticed was 6 smaller boats but assumed they were rented. We went out for our 90 min cruise and happened to go by the dock a few times and noticed the 6 boats still sitting there. We then realized we got scammed into the $150 boat. After docking we asked the employee if those were their boats,they said yes. We asked if they were broken he said no. Inside the office they told us the boats had gone out when we were gone, NOT (we even took pictures the 2 times we cruised by) were they untruthful ? We didn't want to argue the point and just left but will Never use this unscrupulous company again, definitely rent from another place. We live locally and come here a lot and know there are several other choices for rentals. They use Groupon to get you in the door then rip you off. They must make a fortune off of groupon. As a side note the boat was not clean and the radio was broken.

This is the second time we've done the harbor cruise in Newport Beach and we are never disappointed. We were running late for our booked time but the staff was so accommodating and didn't penalize us or cut into our 90 minutes! Leisurely boating thru the harbor, munching on appetizers and listening to some great music while laughing, visiting with our friends and enjoying the beautiful homes along the shoreline. A great way to spend the afternoon.
