Ready to experience the amazing waters of the Newport Beach area in the best way possible? Try a tour of the majestic waters of the Bay on Kayak or Paddleboard via Balboa Tours.

This scenic enclave, located in Orange County, California, was formerly a shipbuilding and commercial traffic center. But over the years, it has evolved into a beautiful recreation area, surrounded by the fantastic Newport Beach residential community. Visitors come from all over to enjoy its calm waters, abundant sunshine, and scenic wildlife.

As you meander through the Bay, in addition to the natural scenery, you’ll also get to marvel at some of the beautiful multimillion dollar homes and luxury super yachts on display.


Half way through, you’ll take a break to rest and have a quick snack refreshment, before proceeding on the rest of your journey. Enjoy the view, take in the fresh air, and feel good exploring the Bay on this relaxing Kayak and Paddleboard tour.
