The fun zone itself was very unimpressive. Don't bother going if you are only going for the arcades and few lame rides. It was a waste of time. Had I done any of the actual boat tours perhaps I'd feel differently. The fun zone itself...More

Wasn't expecting much from tour;just a little cruise around the bay. What a pleasant surprise to see the seals and lovely homes. The guide had some interesting stories and the tour was very relaxed and enjoyable.

This is the best thing we did in Newport Beach. I learned a huge deal about the town--little stories I would've never known. We saw like 20 sea lions on a buoy. They were about 20 ft away. Very cool. Great guides. Recommend 100%
