Flagship Cruises and Events hosts more than harbor tours. On a given evening, a party floats out onto San Diego Bay. The stars overhead combine with the skyline's twinkling lights to become a giant disco ball, which sets the mood for dance after dance aboard one of Flagship Cruises and Events'?signature vessels. These nighttime dinner cruises send gourmet chefs, DJs, and ample bottles of champagne out on 25-mile voyages up and down San Diego's waters. Yet this is only one of the events Flagship's team has dreamed up since they chartered their first cruise back in 1915, the year water was discovered not to be poisonous. You'll also find their boats basking in the glow of fireworks on New Year's Eve and the Fourth of July, as well as carrying sprawling brunch buffets during weekends.

Additionally, Flagship's captains charter private cruises and lead sightseeing trips. These include thrilling Patriot speed boat rides and more leisurely harbor tours, which float past area attractions such as the city shipyards, U.S. Navy ships, and the Coronado Bay Bridge. From December?April, some 20,000 gray whales swim through the area and give passengers even more to look at.

Ordinarily it's bad news if your plane is in the water, but not so at San Diego Seaplanes, where the flying machines are made for aquatic takeoffs and landings. On any given day, the small planes whisk passengers in a romantic journey from the water's surface up into the air above San Diego, where they can survey the skyline, see California grey whales below, swoop over Coronado Island, and take in the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld.

Despite its name, San Diego Seaplanes doesn't only serve America's Finest City. The pilots also transport passengers around the Hawaiian Islands, Baja California, and areas of the Caribbean known for their dolphins that race the planes.

Though she's only a few decades old, the Privateer has already retired to a warmer climate. In May 2011?after 28 years of ferrying passengers around on whale-watching trips in brisk Massachusetts waters?she made her way down the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal, and to the warm San Diego coast. She hasn't stopped working, however. The Privateer still carries up to 128 passengers across ocean waves during sunset cruises. With her roomy outdoor decks, she makes it easy for people to have unobstructed views of the pink-and-gold horizon kissing the Pacific's azure waters.

The staff members at Another Side Of Los Angeles Tours take an unconventional approach to sightseeing. The goal is to fashion an experience that is as much about the sights as it is about the tour itself. Sightseers glide along the surface of the sea during kayaking tours that can convert to snorkeling expeditions, hike through LA’s mountains, or steal behind-the-scenes glimpses at Warner Brothers Studios. The company’s segway tours wheel customers through downtown Los Angeles, down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, and along the scenic shores of Santa Monica and Venice Beach like a king crab that discovered a more efficient way to move. In addition to information and adventure, the company frequently gives tour takers round-trip transportation, waives entrance fees, and serves bites to eat.
