Although he climbed the corporate ladder at a sprinter's pace in his young life, Kirk Robinson understood the only place he belonged was out on the ocean. He was known to his coworkers as a superior business mind⎯that is, when they actually managed to find him at his desk and not at the beach windsurfing. So, after reading The Road Less Traveled and Do What You Love, the Money Will Follow, Kirk found the inspiration to start Captain Kirk's Inc. in 1992. He then quickly gathered a team that also possessed his passion for watersports, including his kiteboarding wife, Kitty, and set up shop.
Today he and his crew show others how to get the most out of the ocean through kiteboarding, windsurfing, and standup paddleboarding lessons. Additionally, Captain Kirk's retail includes all the supplies needed to master those three activities. Completing the trifecta, Kirk also owns CK's Beach Resort in La Ventana, where guests can bask in the beauty of aqua waters, a private beach, and luxurious lodging while experiencing everything from kiteboarding and standup paddleboarding to windsurfing, sportfishing, and scuba.
A pile of dirty suits, blouses, and jackets sits on a doorstep. Suddenly, a truck pulls up, whisking away the soiled garments and replacing them with hangers of newly dry-cleaned and laundered vestments. The staff at Pacific View Cleaners time their complimentary pickup and delivery service (available on orders $50 or more) to each client's schedule, basing their high standards of customer service on more than 30 years of industry experience. Using 100% biodegradable, petroleum-free solvents, they expel stains, cleanse leather and suede, and remove odors, mold, and discoloration caused by fire, flooding, and mildew. When they aren't scouring sullied duds, they perform alterations and tailor pants for three-legged races. They also preserve wedding gowns in oxygen-free, moisture-controlled cases and back their work with a lifetime guarantee.
Catalina Adventure Tours’ aquatic guides unlock the secrets of island living during submarine and glass-bottom-boat tours or interior land excursions. Safely submersed below sea level aboard the military replica SS Nautilus, groups of up to 45 search the waters for rapidly growing ladder kelp, boisterous fish, and reflections they think are sea spirits, and those riding in glass-bottom boats start feeding frenzies among hungry schools gliding below. Alternatively, guests can spy bald eagles and buffalo during an Inside Adventure tour or gaze over cacti speckling the foreground of sweeping ocean views from the Wrigley Memorial & Botanical Gardens on the City Botanical Garden tour. Catalina Adventure Tours also runs evening missions with guides serving as curators of ocean nightlife and designated drivers for seahorse discotheques.
A boat zips along through the water, trailing behind it an open parachute elevated to almost a quarter-mile in the air. This isn't a scene from a spy movie, but rather a scenic parasailing tour from California Parasail, whose lines can lift patrons up to 1,200 feet above the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. As parasailers relax into their harnesses and take in breathtaking panoramic views, they can also take comfort in knowing they're in safe hands??all captains hold a US Coast Guard license and all crew members adhere to the practices of the Water Sports Industry Association. They operate runs throughout Avalon and Catalina Island, as well as Balboa Island, Newport Beach, and Long Beach, allowing patrons to glimpse views of different coastal areas and befriend cumulus clouds with varying regional dialects.
Babouch Moroccan Restaurant cradles patrons in the invigorating spirit of Morocco as vibrant tapestries and ornate ceiling canopies surround a menu of traditional North African dishes. Between the fluted edges of golden tables, skewered preparations of beef and seafood descend alongside zesty accents of couscous, honey, and prunes as eggplant and lentils adorn a range of meat-free dishes. A colorful selection of craft cocktails and international wines merges with succulent frappe blends to balance the exotic flavors. Each night, performances by male and female belly dancers suffuse the space with eye-catching movement and jingling sound, whereas tarot readings lend guests a glimpse of the future without the meticulous hemming required of ripping a hole in the space-time continuum.
