Scubafy Dive Center's veteran dive instructor, cofounder Charlie Franks, an instructor, regional training director for IDEA, and evaluator, draws on thousands dives’ worth of experience while teaching scuba courses. Charlie and his instructors guide small-group classes of budding divers aged 12 and older through open-water certification courses, which impart the skills needed to explore the liquid depths of nearby Lake Mead, international waters, or Zeus's hot tub. The shelves and racks of Scubafy's well-stocked dive shop are laden with new and pre-owned gear for divers of all skill levels. Rental equipment is available by the day or week, and air-tank refills, repair services, and all-inclusive introductory packages equip those who are getting their feet wet for the first time.

The soaring peaks and red-rock lava flows of the River Mountains. The snaking gravel paths that form a ghostly memorial to a Hoover Dam railroad. The rippling waters of Lake Mead. At All Mountain Cyclery, these local sights headline daylong bike and kayak tours of the wilderness surrounding Boulder City. Located only a 30-minute drive from the famed Las Vegas strip and 10 minutes from Lake Mead, the cyclery rents out Specialized bikes and sells two-wheelers by big other big names, including KHS and Redline. With a fresh set of pedals beneath their feet, cyclists can confidently cruise down the manmade Bootleg Canyon single track. Gravity tows bikes down the steep path at full throttle, leaving riders free to focus on navigating the challenging terrain and throwing their sneakers at distracting birds.

Vegas Bike Store culls a gleaming array of two-wheeled transports alongside stylish riding gear and focused repairs to help riders stay safe and mobile. Masi, Bianchi, and Marin bicycles yearning for a home line the store’s interior, waiting for a bike-store associate to match them with an owner in need. The sales staff ensures that riders mount their ideal metal steed by performing a measuring session atop a virtual bike-training simulator, which catalogs the user’s riding style as he or she speeds through faux mountain ranges or county-fair potato-sack races. Meanwhile, bicycles ravaged by roadways find solace in the hands of an experienced bike technician, who replaces cracked parts with brand-new substitutes and rejuvenates stressed systems with adjustment and lube services. Vegas Bike Store crew members periodically venture from the shop’s confines to lead groups through real mountain landscapes in monthly rides and host riding classes to bolster attendants’ skills.

The Wild Thing Triathlon is a little different from your typical three-sport endurance race. For one, it's designed for both and kids to complete. That's why it boasts two courses: a longer one and a scaled-down shorter one accessible to kids age 3 and older. Another creative touch? It progresses backwards?running comes first, followed by biking, then a current-assisted swim in Wet 'n' Wild water park's lazy river. For an extra dose of kid-friendliness, contestants who prefer not to swim can wade too, although sending a stunt double down the river is not allowed.
