Absolutely a wonderful experience. Black Swan was great at returning phones calls, they were courteous and very attentive to our requests. We added a message in a bottle; which made the whole experience even more amazing and memorable for our Mom's Birthday! Gondoliers were friendly and fun. The entire experience was fantastic and we would love to do it again in the near future.

INCREDIBLE 🥹☺️🎉 We highly recommend. I took my whole family out! We enjoyed the sights and sounds of the peaceful lake and our incredibly experience Gondolier! He races in Venice and sang for us in Italian serenading our evening with an amazing voice. He educated us on the boats and was just a delight. Drew, the owner I can’t speak highly enough to either he helped me locate the dock and accommodate all my family’s needs, allowed us to bring snack and wine. Great night! Must do in San Diego!

Brought a friend from the east coast to do this with me and hands down was one of the best tourist experiences either of us has had. Gorgeous views, enjoyable education, and the best part was Capri (the most gorgeous and charismatic frenchie). This needs to be at the top of your list to see/experience if you visit San Diego.

Best kept secret in San Marcos. Had an amazing time. The view was beautiful. The gondolier presence was very minimal and cordial. Giving me and my partner space a privacy to enjoy our evening.

I surprised my husband with a Black Swan Gondola experience as a Christmas gift. We had a lovely time! Mason, our gondolier, was informative and delightful - sharing interesting tidbits about Lake San Marcos and the wildlife we encountered. We topped off our evening by enjoying a delicious meal at Amalfi. Overall, a very enjoyable time. Highly recommend.

This was such a fun experience! You can bring food & drinks which make the experience even better. I went with a friend I hadn't seen in a while, and it was the perfect atmosphere to catch up while enjoying the views, food, and music. Highly recommend for ANY occasion!
