We decided to do this adventure at the last minute. Making the reservation was easy and the staff was awesome. We were able to get the sunset time and we really enjoyed it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

My husband surprised me with this boat experience for our Anniversay and it was amazing and very beautiful. The guy who was with us sang three songs to us. He had amazing voice.
It was a beautiful experience.

“Cool activity for a hot day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

It was a hot day inland San Diego county, but when we got to our gondola and out on the water, even though it was the middle of the afternoon, it was quite pleasant. Our gondolier was very friendly and informative. It was a great pre-birthday activity!

“Venice but closer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

My daughter and son-in-law gave me a birthday Gondola ride which was sooo much fun! The two couples and our 2 year old grand daughter pushed off an hour before sunset with Francisco on the oar and it was a magical hour that went way to fast. Francisco was friendly and gregarious without being intrusive, and provided interesting commentary and recorded Italian music. The canals and overall setting were beautiful and peaceful. It felt almost like being in Venice (which we have also done) without the long airplane ride. This is a secret treat in Coronado which even residents like us don't know about. Next time we'll book two hours.

“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

A group of friends and I enjoyed a gondola ride in mid- May. We had the large gondola that seated 7-14 people. It was spacious and very enjoyable. We had two gondoliers who were friendly and one of them sang beautiful songs for us. It was a stunning, peaceful day! The only downside was that it was over too soon! We're looking forward to going again!
