The Humboldt is a scuba diver’s dream dayboat. We dare to say the most popular San Diego dive boat.
Co-designed by one of Waterhorse Charters’ founding fathers, our largest vessel is a prime example of Newton’s acclaimed dive special model.
They are recognizably so safe that San Carlos’ Coast Guard only approved of a Newton 46’ to sail through hurricanes.
Not to say, Newtons are the main dive boat featured on the popular Art To Media Dive Maps.

“The best day boat I’ve ever been on. Plenty of room to sit, eat, move around, store my camera and gear, full bathroom, and even little tables to eat or nap after the fun.”
The Camarão, or ‘shrimp’ in Portuguese, is our versatile pilothouse.
Transplanted from North Carolina, where she started her life as a commercial fishing boat, Camarão was hauled on a trailer to the West Coast in exactly two and a half days.
After months of touchups, she became a mini-version of the Humboldt and a well-equipped craft for all the watersports we offer.
Perfect for smaller groups, she makes light-load trips possible even when there aren’t enough people to run our bigger boat.

Which boat am I going on?
On our schedule, we mark trips planned on Camarão with an asterisk (*). 95% of the time we stick to the plan, but sometimes we switch boats around to accommodate more (or less) divers.
PRIVATE CHARTERS & OTHER ACTIVITIES
While the Camarão is our go-to boat for Snorkel, Shark Diving, Freediving, and Fishing/Spearfishing private charters, on Scuba Diving Private Charters and Party Cruises, it’s totally up to you to decide which boat fits your group’s needs better.
If you have physical special needs, please reach out to us and we’ll make sure to accommodate you on the right boat for you.
