John Wayne "Wild Goose" Birthday Cruises John Wayne "Wild Goose" Birthday Cruises

We've cruised with Newport Beach Hornblower twice, the first time was for lunch and the second time was for a 70th birthday dinner cruise. The crew is very knowledgeable and work great as a team. Thank you for picking the right people for the job.

The cruise on John Wayne's old yacht, The Wild Goose...was a part of our International Laurel and Hardy 2014 Convention, and it was special. 3 decks of gorgeous woodwork, priceless paintings, intricate carvings, many personal items of Wayne's, and unique amenities make a cruise aboard the Wild Goose a one-of-a-kind experience. There were many pictures of the Duke and other personal items aboard. If you are a fan of the "Duke" and you get the privilege of going on this floating historical museum once owned by John Wayne, take it; you will not be sorry.
