Have you been trying to think of a place to hold your wedding reception but nothing is coming to mind?

Sure, you could always have it at a hotel, restaurant, or backyard. But you want it to be memorable and special, something to remember and look back on with fondness. Which is why you may want to consider having your wedding reception on a yacht. Think about it. You get to celebrate one of the best days of your lives, overlooking the Southern California coast and setting sun– A beautiful backdrop to start your new lives together. Imagine devouring a fillet mignon or seared salmon drizzled with lemon, polishing off a cocktail, and dancing the night away under the stars–all with the people you love. We understand this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a time people remind each other of when you grow old together. We get it. Which is why we want to offer you not just the wedding venue but your choice of catering options, photography, videography, flowers, and ministering services, entertainment, beverages, wedding cake services, and more. Our goal for you is that you let us do all of the planning and worrying for you while you sit back and relax and enjoy this special time.

We will happily listen to your wedding reception ideas and make sure you and your guests are well accommodated for. If you have a large party and need comfortable, spacious seating, look to Destiny–one of the most spacious and luxurious yachts, which holds up to 300 guests and has not just one but four floors. Or, perhaps you’re looking for a quintessential, Americana experience. In which case, we’d point you towards Electra, a vessel that was built in the 1920s yet, due to refurbishing, still runs just as smoothly as today. For more information and details, contact us for a free consultation with one of our wedding planners.


The calm soothing waters of beautiful Newport Harbor and the fresh ocean air will give you the feeling of a mini-vacation.

Whether you require the charm of a paddle-wheel river boat, the elegance and romance of a classic fantail yacht, or the world class luxury of a modern ultra-contemporary motor yacht, Electra Cruises has the right vessel for you.

More Info

At Electra Cruises all of our events are held within the Harbor where the water is calm, there are no ocean waves in sight, and the yachts sail very slowly. Plus the yachts are simply too large to be affected by a wave!

If the bride and groom have invited your kids we welcome them too! For the most part the yachts are fully enclosed and there are tall safety rails along the parameters of the outside decks. All 5 yachts are also equipped with child life vests as well.

Majority of our events are held in 4 hours. Unless you anticipate having a long ceremony it tends to be more than enough time. In that case we can always add more time! Just ask a representative!

Each of our yachts has a full galley head chef and kitchen staff who work diligently the day of your event to prepare your customized menu. Everything is prepared from scratch on the yacht itself according to your event so nothing is catered or will sit out for long periods of time.

Depending on the size of your party we can host a small intimate wedding for 20 or have all of your friends and relatives for a wedding of 300. The beauty of having a yacht wedding is having a designated deck for all of your festivities so you never feel crammed.

While we have guests in wheelchairs almost weekly our largest yacht the Eternity has an elevator that reaches all 3 decks so no one has to miss a beat!

Guests with young children or elderly tend to be concerned about not being able to leave if needed. Not only are there water taxis and gondolas who can take private parties back to the dock, there are medical water ambulances that can arrive at the yacht within seconds if there is an emergency.

Because our yachts are almost entirely enclosed the nature of your party will not be affected rain or shine. In fact photographers prefer overcast weather for your photos!

Our service staff is also made up of knowledgeable experienced deckhands who are constantly doing engine room checks to prevent problems and ensure the yacht is running properly.
