This is such a great experience, just sit back and let your gondolier paddle you around the beautiful homes in the Coronado Cays - of course with lovely Italian music too!

We had a great gondola ride! Wonderful Sunset! Definitely bring some beverages. Worth the trip a little out of town. Uber costs about $10 from downtown.

I've taken a few gondola rides for special occasions and it's always something very special to do! My office is practically next door to them, if you could hear the comments from everyone as they depart, it's jist a beautiful experience!

This was a most magnificent way of proposing to the one you love. Our gondolier was experienced and had an incredible voice which he shared with us going through some of the canals of Coronado. We will definitely do this again!
