Newport/Balboa Boat Rentals

Rent a boat in Newport Beach from Balboa Boat Rentals! Our mission is to provide customers the best service and value by offering a variety of recreational boating opportunities in clean, safe, reliable craft and to do it better than anyone else.

Extended Holiday Hours

Balboa Boat Rentals is open late through the holidays for your own evening tours.

Newport Harbor’s famous Ring of Lights is hundreds of beautifully decorated bayside homes and businesses surrounding the harbor. Waterfront residents go “all out” with their own holiday spirit, featuring everything from roof-top animated scenes to dancing Christmas trees. With its own judged categories and prizes awarded, the “Ring of Lights” has become as celebrated as the boat parade itself.

Take a look at last year’s winners, and then make a Reservation Online for your own tour on a fully-enclosed Duffy electric boat or covered pontoon boat.
