What you'll do

We will board our unique twenty five foot sailboat that is custom built for you! After serving your wine and appetizers we will embark on our ninety minute cruise around Newport Harbor. With no need to raise the sails and spill the wine we will motor around the harbor while you can take in the sights and sounds of the harbor on the benches mounted on the bow. You have never experienced a ride on a sailboat like this! See the historic landmarks and famous people 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!

Marcus took our bridal party out on the water for a wildly fun ride. The snacks were tasty!!! He knows what he’s doing and we had so much fun with him!!!!! If you want a private time with an intimate group, this will be a great experience!

Marcus was a wonderful tour guide of the area. We enjoyed a perfect mother/daughter afternoon on his boat with his stories and wine!

Our 90 minute sunset cruise amongst the islands of Newport Beach was the highlight of our visit. Marcus made sure to point out who owned the biggest boats and houses, but just didn't rattle on needlessly like some tour guides. He allowed us to talk amongst ourselves, and with the other couple who was on the boat. The food and beverage service while on board was excellent, and he was attentive to making sure that the women on board were warm enough since it was a bit chilly towards the end. Overall I highly recommend this cruise if you are staying in Newport, especially on Balboa Island.
