What you can expect
Take a scenic stroll around Newport Beach and then dive into its bar scene with a local guide leading the way. Enjoy the sunset from the end of the pier, followed by a ferry out to Balboa Island for some more boozy fun.
Your local guide will meet you in a central location in Newport Beach, excited to help you enjoy a great night out.
California sunsets are something to behold, so before the night closes in you’ll head to the end of the Pier for a mesmerizing sunset over the Pacific Ocean – have your camera ready!
Next up your guide will take you to one of their favorite local dive bars and then on to a charming microbrewery housed in an old seafood market. Try a locally brewed IPA or the famous Newport Beach Blonde — both of which are great choices.
You’ll then hop in an Uber to the ferry terminal and catch a boat out to lively Balboa Island. Take a stroll around the neighborhood and then enjoy a drink in a popular local inn that boasts regular live music sessions with local artists.
Your tour will end here, but your guide will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island and Orange County.
