See the historic landmarks and famous people's homes that line the harbor. We never go out into the open ocean so no need to worry about motion sickness!

I have been running Ship ‘N a Bottle wine cruises in Newport Beach for eight years. Known all around the harbor as "The Best Captain in The Bay" I know Newport Harbor like no other. With a tremendous passion for the ocean it is easy for me to share my stoke with all my guests! Come experience my 5 star reputation that dates back to 2011!

It was everything we expected and more! This experience is so far our favorite that we’ve had as Captain Marcus is a great tour guide and always ready with a blanket if the night goes cold. Perfect for a small picnic like dates without the grass and bugs.

Our group had a fantastic time with Captain Marcus on our voyage around Newport Bay. With wine, appetizers, and Marcus' tour guide knowledge of the area we had everything we could need. Our group had fun and enjoyed the sunshine in a safe, socially distanced way that made everyone feel comfortable. Marcus was a great host and we highly recommend booking his experience!

Great tour and the fellow boaters seem to know and love A Sip In A Bottle as many waved and greeted us as we passed. Marcus waited for my guest and I to arrive, as we were running late, which we very much appreciated. The boat was a comfy fit for four and Michael gave us great insight to the incredible homes that lined the water. It was beautiful views and sunset and a great price per person. I'd come back again with friends or on a date.
