Yacht Sylvia is a 56-foot, 35-ton staysail ketch designed in New Zealand by naval architect John Alden. Launched in 1973, the yacht has circumnavigated the globe on multiple occasions, survived hurricanes, and now ferries passengers and students to remote destinations. The below-deck interior features a maritime museum with artifacts from around the world displayed on the bulkhead and countertops. Sailing lessons range from two-hour tours and explanations of basic sailing techniques to three-week immersive trips abroad during which participants learn as they perform crew duties. In addition, Yacht Sylvia Sailing can host charters for up to six to international destinations including the Channel Islands and the Sea of Cortez.

Cooks at The Flinn Springs Inn sizzle up hearty pub grub, including cheeseburgers and tacos, as tap masters pour cold draft beers or expertly mix cocktails within a bar and grill replete with exposed-brick walls and leather-topped barstools. Guests can play a game of billiards inside, or make their way to the sprawling outdoor patio to watch live music and college-level math lectures on the stage or hurl horseshoes in the regulation pits. After dancing, singing karaoke, or playing beer pong all night, patrons can return the next morning for pancakes and bloody marys.

Performers feed off the energy of their audience, and when there is no audience, there is no energy. To stop this problem before it starts, venues turn to FillASeatSanDiego, a business that supplies its members with tickets to events that still have seats to fill. Members enjoy a year of entry to popular shows, sporting events, and concerts, bulking up the audience more suitably than a litter of Chihuahuas dressed in tuxedoes. Upon joining FillASeatSanDiego, members receive access to a list of upcoming events.

From two outposts on the shores of Mission Bay, Adventure Water Sports launches vessels and seafaring classes to introduce customers to the joy of cutting through veils of spray and sunshine. Both launching points are near the bay's full-speed zone, so captains hoping to tote skiers behindpowerboats or do donuts on a scuba diver?s lawn in waverunners don't waste valuable time idling through the no-wake zone. Kayaks, pedal boats, and paddleboards cut across the steel-blue mirror of the no-wake zone, an ideal stretch for learning and exploring. Instructors from Adventure Water Sports impart nautical wisdom to youngsters in summer youth classes that focus on anything from waterskiing and wakeboarding to riding aqua cycles. The waterfront retailers also rent out single and tandem terrestrial bicycles for those looking to cruise the Mission Beach boardwalk or simply explain the motorcycle noises they are making with their mouths.
