For those wanting to feel as though you’re on an excursion in Venice without actually travelling across seas, The Gondola Company in Coronado has you covered! Get ready to embark on a peaceful gondola ride through the canals of Coronado (yes, apparently Coronado has canals, who knew!).
Kick back and relax while a gondolier whisks you up and down the canals while listening to romantic Italian music. You may even get serenaded by your gondolier if you’re lucky!
Although this is ultra-romantic and the perfect date idea, it’s also a ton of fun for families and friends. I also love that it is dog-friendly! Use your best judgement with your pup if you choose to bring them as this could potentially go south depending on the dog!
The Gondola Company uses authentic gondolas from Venice, Italy creating an authentic Venetian experience. Their company is located within the Coronado Cays which is an extremely exclusive area with few sidewalks. Each home has its own dock though!
Riding in the gondola is one of the few ways you can appreciate this beautiful neighborhood. There are plenty of gorgeous homes to gawk at and many yachts and other nice boats to admire!
