Newport Coastal Adventure utilizes a 23-foot Zodiac inflatable boat paired with a quiet and low emission 150 hp four-stroke Yamaha engine. The Zodiac SRO 700 has a weight capacity for 20 people, but we only take 6. We can attain a top speed of 40 mph, but typically travel around 20 mph. Our boat’s speed allows us to cover more ground in less time to increase our chances of finding dolphins and whales, providing a key advantage over our slower competitors. We meet United States Coast Guard (USCG) standards for commercial operation and our boat has a radar, chartplotter, and VHF radio for the highest standard of safety. Your captains are licensed by the USCG and have deep knowledge of the local coastline and conditions.
