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.

Disguised in wetsuits, flippers, and diving masks, humans almost seem indistinguishable from the scores of aquatic life that thrive among the San Diego coastline. In the water, curious sea lions tug playfully at divers' fins, and thick stalks of kelp wave like Queen Elizabeth telling the gathered crowd to go home already. With access to five separate sites in which to see such wonders, the guides at San Diego Excellent Adventures tailor their adventures?whether snorkeling, diving, or paddling?around the experience level of each tour group, ensuring an easy assimilation to undersea life.

During guided dives along La Jolla Shores, swimmers peer in on frolicking creatures such as lobsters, octopuses, and leopard sharks, and standup paddleboards grant access to Mission Bay's shoreline views previously seen only by terribly lost Venetian gondoliers. Currently the largest manmade bay in the country, Mission is known for its calm waters suited to beginners just learning to explore the ocean.

Core-Breathing 4 Golf has developed a unique teaching philosophy that aims to seamlessly connect a golfer’s core strength with the physical swing. By combining Bill Westerlund’s 40 years as a PGA instructor and Scott Bartley’s 35 years as a qigong master, the cofounders base their instruction on qigong methods, teaching students a four-step breathing process that maximizes the body’s core energy and clears the mind of emotional barriers. The result is more controlled, consistent performance across the board. Golfers notice an improvement in ball-striking abilities and flagstick javelin throwing by gaining a deeper understanding of the connection between their internal energy and physical swing.

With Mission Bay Golf Course and Practice Center acting as the learning facility, instruction programs range from private lessons on individual aspects of the game to full-game lessons that range from a half day to up to three days.

You've probably heard this phrase before, or at least something to its effect: "Back in my day, that cost a nickel." Decades ago, just about everything ran five cents, from candy bars to bus rides. Of course, anywhere you go today, that simply isn't the case?anywhere, that is, except for Nickel City Fun Center.

Nickel City operates almost exclusively on nickels. Inside the 15,000-square-foot space, visitors can play more than 100 games by inserting the coin that features Thomas Jefferson's only selfie. They can top high scores in pinball, zip goals past air hockey opponents, or even conquer ticket-redemption games and trade their paper winnings in for prizes. In addition to all its games, Nickel City also features four Highway 66-themed miniature bowling lanes with automatic scoring and bumpers. The best part: players don't have to wear special shoes or hover above the lanes on a magic carpet?they can just step up and start bowling.

With San Diego being one of the world’s sailing capitals, any visitor or local alike should get out onto the water and enjoy the city’s aquatic playground. Next Level Sailing has three gorgeous yachts – Abracadabra, America and Stars & Stripes – that each offer two to three hour excursions around the bay and open ocean. During these hands-on sails, passengers act as part of the team and get to steer the yachts, grind the winches and learn about the entire boating process. The 139-foot America ship takes groups whale watching off the coast from December to April, as pods of gray whales travel from Alaska to Baja. A few months later, 100-foot blue whales appear off the coast, making one of Next Level Sailing’s former America’s Cup vessels the perfect place to catch an up-close glimpse. And regardless of the season, dolphins and sea lions are always ready to make a playful appearance.
