Company History

Newport Coastal Adventure was founded in 2014 by Ryan Lawler, a native of Newport Beach and inseparable from its waters since a young boy. Capt. Ryan sought a way to earn a living sharing with people the amazing sea creatures and natural beauty of the coast in his backyard.


An Ideal Location

The concept of Newport Coastal Adventure is unique to the area, leveraging the ideal location of Newport Beach Harbor to key natural features such as its proximity to deep water where whales and dolphins feed, and the adjacent coastline abounding with rocky coves, birds, and seals. Newport Coastal Adventure is the original and favored operator to give customers an intimate experience on the waters of Captain Ryan’s hometown.

#1 Rated Outdoor Activity

Newport Coastal Adventure has gained tremendous momentum in over two years of operation, satisfying thousands of customers. It’s filled a niche providing an exciting adventure on the waters of the Pacific limited to just 6 passengers at a time. In 2016 the company became the #1 rated Outdoor Activity in Newport Beach by TripAdvisor. Newport Coastal Adventure now employs multiple boats and handpicked captains to continue to serve the growing demand for this concept pioneered by Capt. Ryan.
