Cruise Through Channel Islands Harbor On a Venetian Gondola


Talk about hidden gems! You can book a romantic Italian-style Venetian Gondola ride just off the coast of beautiful Oxnard, California. Enjoy a private gondola with your friends, kids or loved ones as it winds through the serene Channel Islands Harbor on a 50-minute excursion with Gondola Paradiso.



It’s all smooth sailing with the professional gondolier guiding you through the water. The gondola seats up to six guests and has seen a lot of magical moments such as family picnics, first dates, marriage proposals and even spontaneous swims in warmer months. The gondola has sailed away with a bride and groom after their wedding and hosted an intimate wedding ceremony at sea.  In keeping with tradition, the gondolier sings the occasional Italian ballad to his guests as they pass by yachts and under bridges.


You can book a cruise with Gondola Paradiso seven days a week. The first cruise sets off at 11 a.m. and the last cruise of the day departs at 9 p.m. Guests are welcome to bring beverages and food of their choosing aboard. Cups, a wine opener, and a beverage bucket are provided, however (grab your own ice at the Vons next door.)  If the weather gets chilly, there are plenty of blankets on board to snuggle up.
