Bay Pontoons is a family run business with over 40 years of boating experience.
Our family has lived in Newport Beach since 1968, and grew up exploring all Newport Beach has to offer. The harbor holds a special place in all our hearts, from fishing trips, Catalina runs, and the fun zone in the summer to the boat parade during the holidays. The bay is the heart of Newport Beach and we want to share with you the joy and amazement that cruising the bay has brought us.
Due to COVID-19, we are currently only able to accommodate groups of 10 or fewer
Our hours of operation have been modified as well - 9am - 7pm
Cruise the bay in luxury on one of our spacious 22' Cruiser CX 220 pontoons. Bring your lunch, snacks and refreshments and relax, take in the views, and enjoy time with family or friends on Newport Beach’s Bay. Dogs are not allowed and there is no fishing or anchoring from our pontoon boats. Each boat accommodates 12 people.
