Duffy Boat Rentals
2001 W. Coast Hwy., Costa Mesa
Renting one of these electric boats is easily one of the best ways to enjoy the coast, particularly right around sunset. They can fit up to twelve people, which makes this a perfect activity for families and visiting friends. It's beautiful to see the houses lining the Newport Bay—a point-of-view otherwise unattainable by foot or car. One goop staffer and her family love to rent one during the annual Christmas boat parade.

A’marees originally opened in the 1970’s in a modest retail space and has since moved to a stunning waterfront location, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private dock. Around town, everyone seems to know the family behind the boutique—Nancy Brown and her daughters Dawn Klohs, Denise Schaefer, and Apryl Schaefer—for their impressive edit of Alaïa and Céline, plus jewelry by Marc Alary. The ladies also stock some pretty incredible art.
