  • Pirate Coast Paddle Co.
    Atop Pirate Coast Paddle Company?s fleet of standup paddleboards, guests glide over the placid inlets of Newport Beach Back Bay in scenic excursions. The paddleboards?which look like slightly larger, heavier surfboards?offer a sturdy enough base for guests to stand upright and propel themselves with a single oar, an action that exercises core muscles better than doing sit-ups with a porpoise on your chest. Led by a staff of nautical guides, paddleboarding tours send clients into the orange horizon during sunset paddle outings and enjoy an ocean view of the stars during full-moon SUP parties. Pirate Coast also offers private, semi-private, and group lessons. During all excursions, Pirate Coast provides boards and necessary equipment rentals, letting clients worry about how to stave off scurvy while on the ocean.

    Adventures Boat Rentals' sea-loving staff outfits the Newport Beach area with both self-propelled and electric-powered vessels. The Duffy-brand electric boats produce zero emissions and carry up to 12 passengers, and Adventures Boat Rentals’ paddleboards and kayaks only produce a soft squeal when passengers board. The staff also equips each rider with a map of the harbor's restaurants to find grub after their adventure.

  • Newport Aquatic Center
    Pirate Coast teaches aspiring sea cruisers to put plank to water and glide across the ocean's surface on a surfboard powered by a long paddle. Learn the basics of paddleboard through land and water instruction while simultaneously strengthening the core, the part of the body the rest of the anatomy looks up to. During lessons, students will practice newly acquired skills on Newport Back Bay, where calm waters relax inexperienced paddlers and rock merbabies to sleep. When the learning is complete, a tour of Newport Harbor will display views of windblown bluffs, sandy beaches, and yachts glimmering in golden sunlight. Each student is equipped with a stand-up paddleboard, paddle, and personal floatation device (upon request).

  • The Waterman's Depot
    The Waterman's Depot is owned and operated by people who not only love the water, but have also spent plenty of time on and in it.

The expansive store contains aquatic sporting gear and apparel from more than 50 brands, including Oakley, Reef, and Sanuk. Available scuba gear ranges from basic fins and snorkels to more advanced gauges and computers that can tell you the number of old soggy boots buried in any fishing lake.

  • Jetpack America
    Jetpack America specializes in teaching the world to fly the world's first water-propelled jetpack and their all-new tandem jetpack setup allows children to strap in with a Certified Flight Instructor to make their superhero dreams a reality. Jetpack America's certified flight instructors teach their customers to walk on water and hover in midair without an airplane or saddled carp. The secret to each of these superhuman feats is the state-of-the-art design of the revolutionary water jetpack. Its twin water nozzles blast high-pressure beams of ocean water, elevating you up to 30 feet in the air, where you can maneuver through figure-eight turns and three-dimensional movements. In addition to their dual control arms, Jetlev's flying machines can be set up with up to three high-definition video cameras, which, for an extra fee, capture each moment of weightlessness or create video resum?s to send to superhero justice leagues. Flyers can opt for a standard video package, which includes one angle of the flight shot from a nearby jet ski, or the premium package, which combines footage from the jet ski with shots from two other cameras mounted to the jetpack's shoulder mount and control-arm mount.
