The Newport Beach Harbor Wine Cruise

You can step aboard our 1968 26’ rustic sailboat and drift through the calming blue waters of Newport Bay.

The Captain was amazing!! He really made the ride fun The views and vibes were great! the wine and appetizers were delicious. Definitely recommend it!


Literally the best birthday I've ever had! Captain Marcus is a great, knowledgeable local who pointed out to us the last standing "Joes Crab Shack" which is where we concluded our day! I created a sailing playlist prior to the tour and Captain Marcus has the Bluetooth speaker. The cheese and meat try was absolutely delish!!!! Wine options were nice as well! Would definitely do again!


Excellent way to spent a couple hours! Guide was nice, funny, and knowledgeable. Incredible scenery and excellent refreshments and cheese plate. Very calm ride so not chance of getting seasick or anything like that.


My husband and I LOVED our time with Ship 'N a Bottle. The cruise around Balboa island was so amazing! Captain Marcus was so kind and professional. The wine and cheese was also fantastic! We will definitely be going again with some friends!


THANK YOU MARCUS!!!! Very knowledgeable and inviting! Definitely planning our next trip soon! The cheese plate was a perfect pairing with the wine!


We went out to Balboa to see the lights and have some drinks with this company last night. It was definitely a win. There were six of us, they seated us up on the bow of an old sailboat with bench seating around a table. It really worked well. Way better than a Duffy because you are up higher.


Ship N A Bottle was an awesome experience! We forgot to grab some blankets but the captain was at the ready with his own. The delicious cheese platter was definitely a great compliment to the Merlot we had. Big thanks to the couple that cancelled, we had the boat all to ourselves! All in all a wonderful experience for our honeymoon cruise!


Bought this for our anniversary and it was quite nice and relaxing. The ship is cozy and cute. The captain even offering me an extra pillow for my back because I'm pregnant. He is gentleman and very knowledgeable of the area in terms of real estate. Would totally do this again!!


My friends and I had the best time on this cruise. The appetizers matched the wine great, and Captain Marcus was a pleasure to have. He made sure we were comfortable, even providing blankets, and was a great tour guide as well! I would definitely do this again.

Use the calendar to find availability for your cruise. Select a day and the available times will show then select a time slot. If you are redeeming a Groupon/Travel Zoo, you can enter it under Voucher Redemption Code. Your voucher is used to hold the reservation and will not be redeemed until the day of your cruise. You can also book using Venmo. It’s the same as using a credit card but safer.

REMEMBER: When a cruise is completely full it is immediately removed from our online schedule. Please do not call and ask for availability. All our availability is listed on this calendar. If you do not see it, it is not available. Keep checking back because cancellations do occur.

Read all this before booking:  If you bought a voucher or want to use Venmo for a PRIVATE boat for up to 6 people, please find a cruise with all 6 available slots (6/6) not 3/6. and choose ‘Private’ under Cruise Participants.

You can also book with Venmo as payment. Select “Need to Pay-Venmo” Input your Venmo account name and you will be sent a request through Venmo.
