Professional, award-winning surfers and lifeguards comprise the team of instructors that equips students with gear and sends them paddling into the ocean. To ensure safety and capitalize on ideal waves, the seasoned athletes check ocean conditions and Poseidon's mood before taking groups or individuals out to sea. As beginners become proficient at catching waves, the instructors level up their curriculum and teach intermediate or advanced feats. Islands Surf Camp stays active in its community by donating time and gear to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, SURF, and Echo Malibu.

When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.

Edge Fitness Club's members make their way into the gym—nestled beside the Channel Islands Harbor—followed by the sounds of lapping waves and squawks of seagulls. The peaceful ocean vibe is reflected throughout the club, as walls of picture windows open up views of distant sailboats and a horizon that rolls over the ridges of the Santa Monica Mountains. Enthusiastic trainers make their way through the pristine facility, demonstrating proper form to clients heaving free weights or toning up on weight machines. The cardio theater is stocked with treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, and rowing machines illuminated by multiple flat-screen TVs and stunning sea-monster lookout points. Beyond the main workout floor, the group studios host sessions of spin, Pilates, yoga, tai chi, boot camp, and TRX classes. The gatherings periodically make their way outdoors in the form of members-only activities including kayaking classes, beach runs, and group hikes on the Channel Islands.

Sea-curious land dwellers relax aboard the Wiley, a 36-foot Catalina yacht, while witnessing gorgeous scenery and watery wildlife of the Santa Barbara Channel and Ventura Coast of Southern California. Captain Dan, a licensed U.S. Coast Guard captain, will guide the schooner toward prime spots to witness whales frolicking and dolphins holding fraternity hazing rituals. Seafarers meet at Vintage Marina to board the aquatic vessel, and then set out from Channel Islands Harbor. Time your voyage to occur at sunset and observe the briny coastline as it floats by, swathed in the sediment-flattering hues of yellow, orange, and pink. Tour-goers can complement their adventure into the watery abyss by bringing snacks or drinks or by having the staff arrange catering. Buy two Groupons for a couple's cruise, or get up to four people together for an on-ship bridge tournament where the losers have to swim back to shore.

Shuttled out to Anacapa Island on the 53-foot Sunfish, Blue Ocean Kayaking paddlers can explore the natural sea caves in open-top kayaks that are carted out for them. Led by knowledgeable guides, tours navigate the surrounding waterways, giving guests the chance to spot dolphins, whales, and a variety of sea birds. Groups are then picked up by the boat at the end of their tour instead of having to hike back to a take-off point or paddle across dry land. Excursions are suitable for all ages and experience levels, and equipment and training is included.

Though little known to humans outside of Ventura, Hook's Landing's sailors are notoriously feared in the sea world. That's due in large part to their successful fishing charters, on which they bag hundreds of rockfish, dozens of whitefish, and multiple lobsters with a crew of tour-goers.The charter's guests can keep any legal-size lobster, crab, and fish they find in their professional-grade hoop nets. Hook's Landing snaps memorable shots of the day's catches and encourages guests to cook their catch, instead of nailing it to a board and trying to make it sing.
