The fleet of fishing boats at Newport Harbor Boat Rentals equips aquaphiles to chart the waters of Newport Harbor and the ocean beyond. Four-person 14' fishing boats contain a live well for storing halibut, barracuda, and renegade toy boats nabbed from Newport Harbor.
Situated inside Davey’s Locker, Newport Harbor Boat Rentals also provides renters easy access to the munitions they need for a day on the water. Before heading out, anglers can rent fishing equipment and purchase tackle and a fishing license, which is otherwise only available at the underwater DMV.
Elephant Butte Lake is beautiful to look at—but it's more fun to explore. That's the idea behind Sports Adventure Marina. The company rents watercraft to people eager to spend a few hours out on the water, whether that means lying back on the sun deck of a pontoon boat, speeding behind a ski boat in a tube, or riding the wakes on a jet ski.
If you want to traverse the calm waters of Newport Bay, Balboa Boat Rentals' kayaks, paddleboards, and pedal boats will suffice. But if you want to venture out into the sea, Balboa's staff also rents out sailboats, power boats, and harnessed sharks. Balboa's Coast Guard?licensed captains will even take the wheel if you want, either during parasailing trips or boat tours in cushy pontoon boats.
As a certified personal trainer for women and recent nominee for the Women in Business Award by the Orange County Business Journal, Rhiannan Nichole knows firsthand the benefits of working out. It wasn't until she started teaching pole-dancing classes, however, that she realized exercise can also induce inner change and empowerment. By blending challenging tricks with sensual movements in her own personal dance style, she works to help students feel more confident about their bodies, regardless of their age, shape, or fitness level. Along with fellow instructors, she leads seven classes, each of which centers on objectives rather than difficulty or government-mandated sweat quota. Rhiannan's vertical abilities have not only helped other women discover their inner vixens but have made her a fierce competitor in the California Pole Dance Championships and have even earned her a feature on the Pocket Pole iPhone application.
