    Review fromJust J.

    Got a Groupon deal for this place and decided to purchase it as a gift for my husband.  Since the coupon wasn’t accepted on holidays, we scheduled our trip for the Saturday evening before Father’s Day and couldn’t be happier with that decision.

    We were greeted with a “casual” staff and given basic rules of how to control the pontoon.  My husband can handle larger boats so I knew he’d pick it up easily but even our 12-year-old had no problem figuring it out.  The pontoon was very clean and spacious and we loved being able to hook up my iPhone to the radio with the included cable.  We were able to coast around all of Newport bay within two hours but next time I’ll consider adding more time to make use of the small grill!  Such a fun way to spend a nice night on the water, will definitely come back!!!

    It was my first time ever on a Pontoon boat and it was SO much fun!   I purchased a Groupon for a 90 minute boat ride and added another hour at regular charge.   When I booked the boat, they told me that I could put 11 ppl on the boat max.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was plenty of room on the boat with 11 ppl.  We were able to walk around the boat, make drinks, have food, open gifts and do birthday cake!

    The staff were extremely nice and helpful.  The boat was clean and in great condition.  The boat was easy to drive and they provided a map of where we could go.  As we needed to make pit stops, everyone at the docks were helpful and guided us withparking and docking.

    My only two complaints were 1.  the ipod cord was a bit shaky, so if it wasn’t just right it would cut out a bit.  2.  We were given a boat with no sides  (due to an earlier unexpected accident that day it was the only boat left).  We had a sunset cruise, so it was a bit chilly.   BUT I called the office while on the boat and the owner immediately offered me another 2 hour boat ride for a future date complimentary.  That made me very happy!

    I would definitely recommend this company !   Very very memorable experience!

    Great way to cruise the harbor.  So much more room than a Duffy.  Easy to drive and nice people to greet you.  They provide full instructions on how to operate this boat as well as how to safely negotiate the busy harbor.  Every one of our 9 guests were comfortable and warm, plus the IPOD plugs into the stereo.

    The only suggestion I would have would be to get more cup holders in the boat.  Less drinks will be spilled. Small issue, really.

    Parking is easy and safe.

    I highly recommend this company over a Duffy rental.  You will not be disappointed

    Call early as they tend to book all the boats on the week-end.  Best time is late afternoon, evening.

    Just want to tell you what a FANTASTIC time we had yesterday on our Newport Pontoon! It was my husband’s birthday surprise and he couldn’t stop smiling. We really loved the entire experience and would do it again – boat was in great shape, staff was fantastic and helpful…really wonderful company!

    We purchased a groupon deal and didn’t know what to expect but Newport Pontoons far exceeded anything we could have imagined.  Even at full price, this would have been a great deal.  The staff were wonderful and really helpful, the boat was beautiful and looked brand new.  We used everything on it (grill, stereo) and it all worked perfectly.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone and can’t wait to come back !

    A must do.  The boats are super easy to drive, roomy and you can stand up and even dance to the music on your ipod.  Easily 8-10 people could be on this boat but we only had 4.  Staff super friendly. Need to get there later than I thought and they totally accomodated us.  In the summer go out around 5:30 and when you get back it is just about sunset …Perfect. These are much better than the Duffy Boats. My teenagers had a blast.
