The instructors at Open Water Adventures reach out to swimmers of all levels with watery exploration from kids’ swimming classes to international scuba-diving trips. Alongside a dive-simulator pool for scuba students, the indoor heated pool hosts swim lessons in lanes along a 2-foot ledge for younger swimmers. Through it all, the experienced instructors—inspired by the likes of Jacques Cousteau and their childhood rubber duckies—impart tips on managing scuba equipment or doing the backstroke. The year-round swimming lessons educate youngsters of all abilities aged 3–12, drawing from the Swim Schools International program's standardized teachings, which focus on water safety and proper technique. After taking a dip, swimmers can scurry to club-style bathrooms with lockers and showers, or head to the onsite shop that sells gear from swim caps to guaranteed scuba equipment.

The mobile historians at Triangle Glides lead tours through the most exciting locations in Raleigh's past and present. They spin tales as groups glide past modern and historic landmarks on the Downtown Discovery tour or learn of riots, duels, and public hangings during the more macabre Raleigh's Darkest Secrets tour. In other tours, groups travel into the 19th-century neighborhood of Oakwood and enjoy the lush grounds of Oakwood Cemetery, the final resting place of nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers.

This sort of exploration is the foundation of Triangle Glides, but its Segways are only part of the adventure. To explore the area's waters, the company sells standup paddleboards. Resident instructors can help newbies master these watercraft during seasonal paddleboard lessons on nearby Lake Wheeler, where paddlers find calm waters surrounded by leafy forests. Triangle Glides also sells electric bikes, fitness Trikkes, and bootless skates, and leads photography workshops.

The founders of Brothers Vilgalys began making krupnikas, a traditional Lithuanian spiced-honey liqueur, on their stove-top as a treat for visiting friends and family. That all changed in 2012, when they went into business making the drink on a much grander scale. At The Brothers Vilgalys Spirits Company, they craft a version of their original home-distilled spirit using whole spices, pure grain alcohol, and North Carolina wildflower honey. Every Thursday?Saturday afternoon, they give tours of their 1,300-square-foot facility, which provide a behind-the-scenes look at production and a few complimentary tastings. They also offer their own cocktail recipes to further their customers' enjoyment.
