Newport Beach’s most famous landmark, the historic Balboa Pavilion,
is one of California's last surviving examples of the great waterfront recreational
pavilions from the turn of the century.

Established 100 years ago in 1906 by the Newport Bay Investment Company,
the Pavilion played a prominent role in the development of Newport Beach as a seaside
recreation area.

a giant passenger catamaran to Catalina Island, harbor sightseeing cruises,
boat (skiff) rentals, whale watching, and the new Harborside Restaurant and Grand Ballroom.
