All public tours are reserved for up to 10 passengers. If you are looking for a tour with just your group you must reserve it as a private tour.

For kids younger than 4, participants with disabilities, or pregnant women please reserve a private tour so that we can accommodate special requests.

Our ocean safaris will take you out in to the ocean looking for marine mammals, pelagic birds, and any other wildlife we can find!

safe & fast Military boats

The most safe and exciting way to explore the ocean is on our custom built Military Inflatable Boats.

 

What sets us apart is our boats. We have the fastest tour boats in San Diego with the ability to reach speeds of over 50 mph. Moving fast means that we can cover more ground and see more of what we love!

Our Rigid Inflatable Boats (R.I.B.s) were purchased from the NAVY SEALs and completely customized to make them ideal for San Diego guided boat tours.

Each boat has plush, custom made bench seats, new Yamaha engines, and a Bluetooth sound system installed.

Our low-profile vessels carry you just above the surface of the water. This virtually eliminates sea-sickness, puts you within arms reach of marine wildlife, and gets you closer to the things you want to see.
