Once the private playground for legendary actor John Wayne, the Wild Goose yacht will host us for a memorable champagne brunch as we cruise Newport Bay this afternoon! For 15 years “The Duke” spent his life onboard the Wild Goose – it was his most prized possession! This 136-foot, converted, World War II-era U.S. Navy minesweeper is a sister ship to Jacques Cousteau’s Calypso and is now listed on the National U.S. Register of Historic Places. It was where John Wayne traveled the world, relaxed, and entertained his celebrity friends including Dean Martin, Bob Hope, Sammy Davis Jr., Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. During this two-hour, scenic cruise past the multi-million-dollar waterfront mansions, yachts, and historic sites of this beautiful bay, we’ll enjoy a delicious brunch buffet featuring freshly prepared entrées, salads, dessert, and free-flowing champagne! Take a self-guided tour of the yacht and explore the library, card room, and staterooms, and even lay on John Wayne’s bed! Visit the salon to see the movie posters and priceless paintings by his former wife. The three decks of gorgeous woodwork, priceless paintings, intricate carvings, and unique amenities make a cruise aboard this historic vessel a one-of-a-kind experience! Following, enjoy time at leisure to browse Roger’s Gardens. Known as “America’s Most Beautiful Home and Garden Center,” this is not just a nursery, it’s a destination! This family-owned, Corona del Mar landmark features gorgeous grounds filled with foliage and flowering plants, fountains, and authentic Italian pottery along with galleries and gift shops full of fine home furnishings, collectibles, and hundreds of decorative plant arrangements designed in-house.
To ensure a healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our guests, this tour will operate with additional health & wellness measures in place.
