Experience Oxnard by Gondola!


Take a romantic tour of the Channel Islands Harbor with Gondola Paradiso. Charter a private gondola tour and take a 50-minute excursion on a beautiful tour around the harbor, just minutes away from the coast in beautiful Oxnard, California.

It’s all smooth sailing with Gondolier and Owner Mark Schooling guiding you through the water. His Italian gondola seats up to six guests, and he’s seen a lot of magical moments: family picnics, first dates, marriage proposals and even spontaneous swims in warmer months. He’s sailed away with a bride and groom after their wedding and even hosted an intimate wedding ceremony at sea.  In keeping with gondolier tradition, Mark 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 food and beverages aboard. If the weather gets chilly, Schooling has plenty of blankets on board in which to snuggle up.
