Gondola Ride Marriage Proposal

Transport yourselves to the canals of Italy with an hour-long gondola ride in Newport Beach. Glide through the relaxing waters and experience true old-world romance. During your cruise the gondolier will slip the bottle in to the water, turn the boat around so the bottle appears on her side of the boat and create a story to convince her to pick it up. She’ll open the bottle to find your special message and that’s your cue to pop the question!
- Meet your gondola at the exact location provided in your confirmation email.
- After a time your gondolier will discreetly slip your message in a bottle into the water and angle the gondola for your partner to find.
- Your partner will be encouraged to open the bottle and read the message.
- After she reads your message in the bottle, propose!
