The friendly attendants at Cycle San Pedro put patrons in the saddles of rental bikes and nudge them in the direction of LA's many landmarks and attractions. Riders can point their handlebars in the direction of the LA Maritime Museum or the Battleship USS Iowa, or content themselves with a leisurely cruise along the waterfront so they can gather some air in their lungs to keep as a souvenir. Rentals are available by the hour, while tours put a knowledgeable guide in the point position for explanations of the route's sights and sounds.

During Snorkeling Catalina's boat tours, snorkeling trips, and private sightseeing charters, visitors come face-to-fin with marine life. Tour guides lead revelers through shallow and deep waters and pilot inflatable boats offshore so passengers can snap photos of seals and dolphins. Back on land, the full-service snorkeling shop outfits guests with necessary equipment, such as flippers, masks, and underwater ovens for fish who don't like to eat soggy bread crumbs.

If you're looking to explore the waters of Huntington Harbor, it's a safe bet that Julie—the operator of Sunset Water Sports—has just the kayak, stand-up paddle board, or even electric karaoke boat for you. What sets her business apart is something she calls the "the one-on-one." She and her husband Chris grew up on the shores of the harbor, and love nothing more than watching visitors discover its natural beauty for the first time. They also teach their guests how to use the rental equipment, patiently helping folks find their footing on the stand-up paddle boards or get acquainted with equipment during fishing charters and whale-watching expeditions. In addition to tours of the local waters, they also lend their maritime expertise to more somber occasions, leading beautiful and respectful sea burials.
