We just wanted to share some reviews with you from customers that have had the opportunity to take out some of our boats. We also want to thank all of them for their kind words:
Kelley I: 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.
Jess Y: I had never rented a pontoon boat before and was very happy that I did! I usually rent Duffy boats, but not any more! The pontoon boat has so much more room and the ride is so much nicer. It truely is luxurious. I brought my little girl and she had a ton of room to play with her toys and spread out, on the duffy boats there is no space at all and it is a struggle to keep the little ones occupied but she had a great time on the pontoon. It was very easy to drive and you sit up higher so you can see out a lot better and when you get on you will be surpised at how nice these are. They want to make sure you have a great experience amd are very accomidating and I will definitely be renting these boats again and again! I rented it in the afternoon as a surprise for my grandparents who were in town and brought a picnic lunch and I can’t wait to take more family outings like this!
Rocky P: It doesn’t get any better than this!! Newport pontoons is going to be the only way i do harbor cruises!
I was able to purchase a 1 1/2 hour cruise through the incredible groupon deal they had. I kick myself for not purchasing more!! We went this past sunday @noon. Took my wife and 2 kids and mother in law. With seating for 11 we had plenty of room for us 5.
The pontoon was excellent,clean and plush. We hooked up pandora on the iphone and enjoyed the harbor.The staff was great and got us in and out with no delays.We didnt use the bbq but its awesome that its there and available for longer cruises.
We usually will rent the duffy boats but newport pontoons has totally changed the game. With so much space and room to move its gonna be the only way we do harbor cruises again!
Jeanine N: I purchased a groupon for this and before I completed my purchase, I called them to ensure they had a spot open for the date I wanted to use it and since they did, I completed my order then made my reservation. The previous poster who was unhappy about availability should not let that reflect poorly in their review of this company because that is not in their control. My family and I were very happy with our experience 100% and would come here again! What a great family time, and yes, we used the grill on the boat and there were NO problems with them arranging that. The service was outstanding as well. Very friendly people and I hope they are around for a long time! We made some great Father’s Day memories this year and thank you!!
Rachel S: Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. We had a little trouble finding the building – if you get to Villa Nova, you’ve gone too far (going South on PCH).
The boats are beautiful, well maintained, and roomy, plus, the stereo system is great. We celebrated by dancing and touring through the harbor. Thanks to everyone at Newport Pontoons!
