Parks, restaurants, and eye-catching vistas stretch for 34 miles across San Diego's waterfront. SailTime San Diego's proprietors, Ian and Gill Bossenger, find that the water itself is the best way to take in the sights. With a fleet of three sailboats docked at the bustling Harbor Island Marina, the husband-and-wife team help open up a coastal world of breezy adventuring along with the bay's dolphins, whales, and thriving submarine populations.
In sailing classes, U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captains and ASA-certified instructors guide prospective sailors through the operation of basic keelboats and large cruising boats alike. The already-certified can hop aboard a late-model Hunter 38 to captain their own charters along the coast or to Catalina Island about 70 miles away or join as members to enjoy sailing without the hassle and expense of being a full-time boat owner or the neck aches of being a full-time stowaway.

At the age of 7, Darcy Edwards would shout for her pony, Fiddlesticks. She still remembers rides on the back of her diminutive steed, though she now has more than 25 years of experience and a forest of colorful ribbons and medals to show for her abilities. In lessons she works to pass on the skills she has accrued in western, dressage, and jumper riding. Darcy, who has been profiled in California Riding Magazine, teaches equestrians of all ages the importance of grooming techniques and accounting for daylight savings time when riding off into the sunset. She also leads day camps for young children in hopes of sparking their equine interests, just as Fiddlesticks sparked hers.

Lead kayaker Marie Humphrey and her team take patrons onto San Diego Bay and nearby waterways for lessons and sightseeing tours. With the skyline as the backdrop, the team leads lessons and tours that explore the region's natural attractions and run the gamut from moonlight tours to kayaking and camping trips. Locals and visitors can kayak El Capitan Reservoir and spot wild hogs and turkeys skulking through tall grasses as spotted sandpipers and willow flycatchers soar overhead. Meanwhile, whale watching sends paddlers out along the San Juan Islands where orcas and eagles challenge each other to yodeling contents, and San Diego Bay lets boaters get up-close views of sea lions and sea turtles.
Specialized tours even allow patrons to paddle under fireworks or on the bay with their dog as passenger. Additionally, kayak-based workout tours give guests a sun-soaked alternative to the gym and Humphrey's Concerts by the Bay lets families float to live music. To expand upon the adventure, Family Kayak Adventure Center also curates trips along the waters of Baja, Florida, the Northwest, and the Southwest.
