About Us

John Pringle

Our company has had the pleasure of serving Newport Beach yachting and boating needs since 1998. We strive to offer unique nautical events focused on private individuals and corporate venues. Our objective is to be known as the company that provides impressive yachts, impeccable service, with amenities that no one else has. Our performance has been validated by our reviews, and repeat clients. Thanks to all of you that have taken the time to share your experience.

Services Include: Harbor and Coastal Cruises, Weddings, Island Getaways (Catalina or other ports of call), Scattering of Ashes, Film Shoots, Fishing Charters, Christmas Boat Parade Viewing and many more.

In 2010, we embarked on our current voyage with the acquisition of Motor Yacht Paradiso. Throughout the years we have continually focused on improving your experience. We are proud to have won a grant with South Coast Air Quality Management to upgrade our main engines with better fuel efficiency, allowing a significantly lower carbon footprint. We are currently in the process of upgrading our Main Salon for your enjoyment.

In 2013 we launched BoatRentalsNewport Beach.com, adding Pontoons and Duffy boats to our fleet. Our mission behind these additions was to provide a higher level service to those who wish to enjoy the harbor at a very reasonable price. This is an opportunity for our clients to captain their own boat or take a guided tour around the Newport Harbor.
Our Tours have received raved reviews (check out our Yelp reviews!). Our Newport Harbor tours include a discussion of the seven islands, historical and well-known landmarks while passing 10,000 boats motoring thru and docked along the beauty of the harbor.

OUR LATEST ADDITION! Last year we launched our HOT TUB PONTOON. Our goal was to provide a unique experience for you and 5 of your guests, with features focused on your enjoyment, safety, comfort, and relaxation. Some of the amenities include:

• Kick back and enjoy your tour piloted by our captain.
• Individually prepared for each and every use, sanitized and filled with fresh water.
• Hot Tub offers various seating positions with creative arrangements for 6 guests.
• Front and rear bench seating for relaxing and enjoying the scenery.
• An array of mood lighting: Hot Tub interior, exterior lighting, and special lighting to enhance your experience.
• Teak decking that truly provides the top-of-the-line unique nautical experience.

If you are looking to do something different, call Paradiso Charters and let us help you coordinate your Newport boating experience. We will find you the perfect boat or yacht depending on your requirements, passenger size, and budget.
