Discover

There is so much to discover at the Balboa Fun Zone and throughout the Newport Harbor. From ocean science demonstrations and traveling exhibitions at Discovery Cube’s Ocean Quest to whale watching and harbor cruises, families will enjoy the many options to choose from!

Ocean Quest’s Science of Sailing showcases integrate ship models with artifacts and connects them to science concepts and hands-on activities. Areas of focus include the science of simple machines and how they incorporate design, navigation, and communication. Along the way, visitors will be introduced to the unique and historic elements related to the nautical history of the Newport Harbor.
Home to Newport Harbor’s largest and most diversified rental fleet. Visitors can take a relaxing self-guided tour of the beautiful homes and yachts of the harbor in their choice of five types of power or sail watercraft, enjoy a healthy workout on a kayak, or put their sportfishing skills to the test in a top-of-the-line Boston Whaler.
Newport Harbor is one of the most iconic locations in all of California. With multi-million dollar homes lining the waterfront, an abundance of sea life, and infamous surf spots, like The Wedge, a harbor tour and whale watching experience is a must when visiting the Balboa Peninsula!
There’s nothing like jumping on a beach cruiser and peddling around the Balboa Fun Zone and Village to explore the variety of shops, restaurants, and boardwalk. Bikes can be rented at multiple locations throughout the Balboa Village and Fun Zone. Rental prices vary.
