Celebrating Love

Experience romance and relaxation aboard the Bella Mae as she glides quietly through City Park's breathtaking lagoons.

Celebrating Life

Whether you want an intimate cruise for two, or a small group of friends (up to six), you will cherish this memory for years to come.

Nola Gondola, founded by Robert Dula, will wrap you up with the magic and allure of the Venetian Gondola, and mix it with the romance and flavor of New Orleans.

Robert’s childhood dream of being a Gondolier was realized in 2003 when work on his authentic Venetian Gondola began in Venice, Italy.

Since March 2004 he has been sharing his love of the Gondola with all his guests.

The Gondola’s name is Bella Mae, in honor of Robert’s Mother.

Dio Benedice Bella Mae.
