Charters are limited to six passengers per Boat

Since 2006, Adventure R.I.B Rides has been San Diego’s premiere whale and dolphin watching charter company. Open year-round, we take up to six guests per boat to experience the marine wildlife on one of our authentic Navy SEAL Team Rigid Inflatable Boats (R.I.B.s). The speed of our R.I.B.s give you a fast, fun ride and allows you to get to the wildlife quicker. This gives you the opportunity to experience much more while out on the water as compared to the slow 100+ passenger big boats. The low profile of our R.I.B.s allows you to get up close and personal with a variety of aquatic animals.    

Whether you are looking for whales, dolphins, sea lions or other marine wildlife, our boat charters are an exciting trip out on the water. The scenery of the California coast only gets better while watching whales crest and dolphins jump nearby. All our charters are captained by experienced, licensed US Coast Guard Captains to ensure a safe, fun trip.

All our excursions depart from the Sheraton Marina Hotel conveniently located across the street from the San Diego International Airport.

Contact Adventure R.I.B. Rides by phone or email to discuss or reserve any of our trips shown below. For your convenience, you can also reserve our whale and dolphin watching excursions on our automated reservation system..

Year Round Whale & Dolphin Watching Schedule

Since we strive to give our guests the best experience possible we may need to reschedule a trip from time to time due to unpleasant off shore weather conditions.

If you are traveling to San Diego it is recommended to reserve an excursion at the beginning of your visit rather then at the end allowing you a more flexible schedule in case a trip is rescheduled to a later date.

Due to the adventurous nature of our public whale and dolphin watching
ocean excursions, we do not recommend them for pregnant women, persons with back,
neck or heart problems or children under 5 years of age. Our Custom Private Charters
or Harbor Tours  are available to fit the specific needs of most passengers.
