What people are saying about Newport Beach

Such an incredibly great experience at a super fair price. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but a lot of dolphins, sea lions, anchovies and pelicans. Many thanks to the crew for this experience!

It was very nice, we saw a lot of dolphins. Unfortunately we were not lucky with the elections. It was still very worthwhile. We would do it again anytime.

Really great, even though we couldn’t see the Wales they offered us a discount for our next booking

Super friendly staff, excursions at the top for the price I highly recommend!

we saw a lot of dolphins, and the price is certainly fair
