Frothy seawater jumps skyward as the churn of high-powered, 110-horsepower jet skis launches the droplets from behind their watery tails. Among the many sea-gliding offerings of American Watersports, the company's fleet of speedy jet skis juxtaposes to its man-powered offerings of single or double kayaks and upright paddleboards that calmly cut through waves and wakes or assist in minnow herding along the coast. Groups can man 13- and 16-foot sailboats that await gentle offshore winds to start their journeys, or take in the ocean from a sandy perch with a day rental of beach furniture. The Pompano Beach area reveals its natural beauty on guided tours of the area via jet ski or paddleboat, wherein visitors take in local gems such as the Hillsboro Lighthouse or the area's exclusive hermit-crab resorts.
Each staff member at Life's A Beach Watersports is certified by NACWO, the National Association of Commercial Watersports Operators. The team uses its expertise to safely dole out adrenaline rushes, whether in the water or the air, to locals and tourists alike. Atop waverunners, ocean kayaks, or standup paddleboards, guests can finally help their goldfish find its deadbeat dad. The shop also rents out cabanas, chairs, and umbrellas for relaxing days on the beach, and package rentals grant their purchasers everything required to enjoy a day on the water.
With a fleet that ranges from the low-key Cessna 150 and 172 to a multi-engine jet, the FAA-licensed pilots of Beach Aviation take to the skies for short jaunts and longer, flights. Lessons depart from nearby airports and cruise the wild, blue yonder along the coast, unveiling a bird?s-eye view of the local wildlife, downtown areas, and other picturesque scenery. Beach Aviation?s seasoned airmen also run instructional courses for aspiring pilots, teaching them the art of ascending, descending, and dodging territorial weather balloons.

Making the exploration of that world accessible is why the founders of Scuba Network opened seven instructional scuba centers throughout New Jersey, New York, and southeast Florida. At all of the locations, certified divers lead Discover Scuba classes that allow first-timers to slip into scuba gear and see what it's like to breathe underwater and sprout their first gills.
