Right around sunrise, the waters of the Mission Bay offer wakeboarders a buttery-smooth surface to practice their sport.

When Taylor and Zach Rhodes' father used to joke about putting a hot tub on the boat they sailed through cold Washington State lakes, he surely never expected his sons to try out his idea. But try it they did, and today Hot Tub Cruisin maintains the only Mission Bay pontoon boat equipped with an onboard hot tub. The uniqueness of this boat has gotten the Rhodes brothers attention from local media outlets and earned them a feature on CNN Money, which aptly proclaimed, "This is not your father's pontoon boat."
The boat fits up to 10 people and their gear, and the tub itself is roomy enough for eight adults or an infinite number of imaginary friends. Renters can prep lunch using the on-board grill and keep their drinks on ice in the boat's coolers, including a small one in the hot tub itself. They can also control the hot tub's temperature, turning it up to 104 degrees or keeping it cool on a hot sunny day. And Bluetooth-enabled stereo system allows passengers to play DJ for the duration of their trip.
Mission Bay Sportscenter leads nighttime tours in high-backed, sit-on-top kayaks, and provides guests with glow sticks to chase away the dark.

Launched as a walking-tour company in 2003, Where You Want to Be Tours features a variety of custom adventures designed to show off the beauty of San Diego to locals and tourists. Most adventures last more than two hours, so tourists have plenty of time to stop and sightsee at spots such as Balboa Park and the shores of La Jolla. Today, the company has formed a set of all new clues and hidden gems and has also expanded its offerings with bike tours of locations such as Pacific Beach and Mission Bay and scavenger hunt adventures, which present a hands-on approach to urban exploration, turning tour routes into racecourses and throwing in physical challenges, including Frisbee-throwing contests.
