NWS San Diego - Office Tours

Groups of all ages are welcome to tour the National Weather Service office in San Diego.

  1. Group size is limited to about 18 people. Larger groups may be divided and come at different times, for example, one group of 18 at 10 AM and another group of 15 at 11 AM. In rare cases when another tour guide is available, groups as large as 36 may be accommodated at one time.
  2. Age is limited to 2nd grade (around 8 years of age) or higher. However, we prefer age groups of 6th grade (age 11) or higher.
  3. Tours last about one hour, shorter for younger age groups and longer for more mature groups with lots of questions.
  4. Tours are adjusted to the needs of the tour group. Usually tours consist of a slide show presentation and a tour of the forecast area.
  5. Tours are arranged in advance based on the availability of the tour group and the tour guide. Preferred times are during normal business hours (weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM), but special arrangements can be made for groups requesting tours outside of these hours.
  6. The NWS reserves the right to cancel or postpone tours because of expected active weather.

For additional information or to schedule a tour, please click on and fill out this Tour Request Form.
