Do you know a John Wayne fan? Make someone’s day who loves the old westerns, and invite them on a John Wayne Celebration Dining Cruise in Newport Beach. Come aboard and experience one of the most famous yachts in the area, John Wayne’s former yacht, Wild Goose. Celebrate his life and the legend by joining us for a Brunch, Dinner or a Cocktail cruise featuring all things John Wayne. You can learn the history of Wild Goose with informal tours of the family’s staterooms, the library, and the famous card room, and explore the art gallery of movie posters and the priceless paintings by Wayne’s wife while you cruise around the gorgeous Newport Beach harbor.

For a really special experience, get your tickets for our “Celebrate All Things Wild Goose” Signature Series Cocktail Cruise. This special “experiential” cruise has everything a John Wayne fan could dream of … a Duke’s Bourbon tasting, specialty bourbon cocktails at the bar, a guest appearance by Bert Minshall, John Wayne’s Former Captain, and watch the movie True Grit, honoring its 50th anniversary aboard Wild Goose! A portion of all proceeds from our celebration cruises will be donated to the John Wayne Cancer Foundation to help fulfill John Wayne’s last wish: to find a cure for cancer.
