March 2018 Day Tours
3/3 John Wayne’s Yacht Cruise
and Brunch
Travel with us to Newport Beach and embark on a delightful Champagne Brunch Cruise aboard the Wild Goose, the private yacht owned by American movie legend John Wayne. The Wild Goose accrued film credits in its own right, serving as a prop in several films, including The President’s Analyst (1967) and Skidoo (1968). The Duke purchased the ship in 1962 and used it as a place to relax and entertain such VIPs as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Dean Martin and more. During your 2-hour cruise you will pass multimillion-dollar yachts and dockside homes of Newport Harbor, plus enjoy a bountiful brunch with free-flowing champagne, mimosas and sparkling cider. Then, take a self-guided tour of the ship at your leisure, including a visit to the staterooms and wheel house. No elevators are present---this tour is inappropriate for persons with mobility restrictions.
