Gondola Ride in Newport Harbor
"With more than 1000 years of practice and tradition the Venetians have all but perfected the art of making gondolas. Utilizing the simple oar and oarlock mechanism (known as the ""Remo e' Forcola"" in Italian) these boats glide across placid canals to safely transport goods and people through the water. With these traditions in mind you romantic gondola ride seeks to recreate the magic of a trip to Venice along the quieter parts of Newport Harbor. Although the area might not have ten centuries of custom and tradition behind the boat rides it more than makes up for it with beautiful sunny California weather or scenic mountainous backdrops.  You private gondola ride can be booked on request with a specific date and time of your choosing in mind. Once your voucher and date is confirmed
