Parachuting and boating fuse into a single sport at Goin’ Coastal Parasailing. The company's CWS motorboats pull visitors harnessed to rainbow-hued parachutes on airborne adventures above the waves as a United States Coast Guard-certified captain helms each boat. Staff ensures safety with new equipment that's checked daily for wear and tear or hostile seagull graffiti. Posttrip, they help adventurers commemorate their one-, two- or three-passenger rides with video footage and T-shirts. To mark special occasions, the captains also embark on chartered parasailing journeys.

The Baytowne Beer Festival pours a cascade of more than 100 beer samples amid the sounds of local Americana and roots bands. The festival’s 2010 edition featured liquid fixings from more than 30 craft-brewing establishments, including World Beer Cup Award winners Dogfish Head and Left Hand. Armed with a complimentary beer glass and wearable barrel, patrons tromp from tent to tent among glistening green grass and the boardwalk’s colorful edifices, taking samples of sippables while partying to live tunes from Americana stalwarts The Minor Adjustments from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and country rock-around-the-clock-ers The Modern Eldorados. From 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., eyes can guzzle their fill at The Village on the Wharf’s Great Lawn, a collection of vintage, brand-new, and still-teething Corvettes crying out to be ogled and fed gas.

Dewsweepers Golf School’s instructors impart club-swinging know-how to golfers of all abilities in one-hour, private lessons. The well-rounded instructors (lessons are valid for any staffer except Tony Ruggiero) can help pupils hone any aspect of their game, such as adding distance to their drives, improving their short game, or bending short irons into serviceable boomerangs. At all locations, computerized video swing analysis technology augments instructors’ ability to diagnose swing deficiencies by providing slow-motion replay for each shot. After the lesson, pupils receive an email file with a copy of the video swing analysis that features voiceover instruction for players to have for later reference and play nonstop at upcoming performance reviews with the boss.

At Baytowne Adventure Zone, people take in birds-eye views of The Village of Baytowne Wharf while soaring through the sky and testing their aerial athleticism on five skybound structures. Unlike superheroes who spend hours perfecting flight patterns and padding lycra costumes, temporary flyers can confidently slip into a safe harness for a speedy cruise down the Baytowne Zip Line. Extensively trained instructors explain the airborne rides’ dynamics before thrill-seekers barrel across 300 feet of rope while dangling 40 feet over the village's blue lagoon.
