You don't need to take a long course to safely operate a small powerboat, but you do need a boat. Seas The Day is on a mission to make the thrilling experience of taking the wheel on the open seas a part of their clients' tours. Guides are there to provide narration and as much instruction as needed before turning over the driving responsibilities for each 15-foot Wahoo Powerboat to their customers and turning them into speedboat captains as they navigate San Diego Harbor's 12-mile expanse.

Out on the water, you'll have the option to steer right up to the USS Midway aircraft carrier and tour the Coronado Bridge as views of the downtown skyline and Mexico's border come into view. You may even meet a sea lion or a dolphin, perhaps just long enough to witness the two realizing they're actually crazy about each other.

To complete the visual, check out this behind-the-waters video. The subjects will likely look familiar, since the speedboat captains that day happened to be San Diego Padres players R.J. Alvarez and Jesse Hahn.

Ghostly Tours in History's passionate guides unlock a portal to the paranormal, leading visitors to haunted and eerie sites around San Diego's Old Town district and Gaslamp Quarter. Depending on the tour, stops include Victorian mansions, the Whaley House, known graveyards, and even unknown graveyards, below which lie the bodies of restless souls. Featured on both the Travel Channel and the Fodor’s Top 400, the company offers walking tours as well as bus and limousine tours for guests tired from giving their assigned ghost a piggyback ride.

In keeping with the historical nature of the tours, each guide dons a period costume and alter ego, ranging from reformed vagabonds to pioneering entrepreneur cowboys. In reality, the cast of guides is equally as diverse, encompassing trained actors, students, a Navy serviceman, and past and present members of the San Diego Historical Society.

Launched as a walking-tour company in 2003, Where You Want to Be Tours features a variety of custom adventures designed to show off the beauty of San Diego to locals and tourists. Most adventures last more than two hours, so tourists have plenty of time to stop and sightsee at spots such as Balboa Park and the shores of La Jolla. Today, the company has formed a set of all new clues and hidden gems and has also expanded its offerings with bike tours of locations such as Pacific Beach and Mission Bay and scavenger hunt adventures, which present a hands-on approach to urban exploration, turning tour routes into racecourses and throwing in physical challenges, including Frisbee-throwing contests.

Even before you climb inside, the GoCar is clearly a car with a personality. The petite, three-wheeled two-seater has a hood that slightly resembles an eager-to-please smiley face, and an open top that seems custom-made for letting the breeze ruffle your hair. Then the real fun begins: built with the company's own software and a compassion for the voiceless robots of America, a talking GPS system guides two-seater GoCars through the city streets of San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon with cheerful, info-rich narration. Second only to having a knowledgeable local jog alongside your minivan, tours zip along at drivers' own pace and accommodate as many pit stops as time allows.

If you can't decide where to eat amid San Diego's wealth of top-tier restaurants, it might be time to go ahead and try them all at once. A Taste of San Diego leads culinary tours through the city's most interesting and respected foodie favorites, from the seafood of Seaport to the desserts of Eclipse Chocolate to the candy-paved sidewalk that connects the two. Other tour highlights might include gourmet olive oil from Olivetti Oil and Vinegar, the swank charm of Jsix, or Venissimo Cheese's world-renowned shrine to dairy. Tours dip into different neighborhoods depending on the theme, and the guides are always scoping out the scene to uncover hidden gems to add into the mix.
