Ahoy Mates!

Skipper Nye and first mates Krapta-Young, Toombs, Rust and Mueller here.

All aboard! Join fellow conference attendees at Newport Beach Duffy in a competitive scavenger hunt and enjoy cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, and the sights of the beautiful homes and restaurants along the Newport Beach coast.

A Duffy electric boat is the perfect way to enjoy the evening with your JAWS friends new and old, silently cruising Newport Bay. We will be in 21-foot Duffy boats, which can accommodate up to 12 adults (10 comfortably). Each boat has a full canopy top and full window enclosures.

Duffy of Newport Beach has worked alongside of the Conference Committee to come up with a fun early evening scavenger hunt for us on the water with a few JAWS twists...

Is that President Dana?We’ll depart the hotel at 5:30 and begin the scavenger hunt at 6 PM. You will receive an informative map, the scavenger hunt map with points of interest, and public dock information before you depart on your adventure. Teams will board their Duffy Boat and crown their ship with a life boat ring bearing their team name. Your regatta will set sail from the same port* as Skipper and Gilligan’s “two” hour tour. Explore Newport Harbor in order to win “The Hunt,” all while taking in the beautiful California Coast.

Our scavenger hunt ends at 8 PM. You’ll find a host of dinner options after disembarking at the final dock. Buses will return attendees to the hotel at 9:30.

Some updates about the scavenger hunt:

  • We are providing some beverages for your boat ride, but please feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks.
  • Duffy boats are equipped with Bluetooth and speaker. Bring your own tunes!
  • There are restrooms at Duffy, so plan to arrive a few minutes early if you need to use the facilities before we take the bus to Balboa Island.
