Book Now

Travel with us to Newport Harbor and board the Wild Goose yacht, the pride and joy once owned and cherished by film legend John Wayne, for a bottomless Mimosa Brunch Cruise. With a career spanning over five decades, John Wayne remains a Hollywood's icon. The Wild Goose has been seen in movies like The President’s Analyst, and Skidoo. Acquired by 'The Duke' in 1962, this vessel became his private sanctuary, hosting luminaries such as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Dean Martin. Take a 2-hour cruise through Newport Harbor passing by multimillion-dollar yachts and lavish homes, and enjoy a delicious brunch complete with free-flowing champagne, mimosas, and sparkling cider. Then, take a self-guided tour of the Wild Goose, adorned with John Wayne memorabilia and offering access to the staterooms and wheelhouse. On the trip home, we’ll stop at the popular Roger’s Gardens nursery, renowned for its expansive and beautifully landscaped outdoor space and curated collection of living items, home accessories, and seasonal decorations.
