At La Jolla Water Sports, guides undergo extensive training before captaining snorkeling excursions into the calm, crystalline waters of the Pacific. The experts escort 6 to 12 patrons at a time on shark tours of the shallow, sandy flats where small-mouthed leopard sharks up to 5 feet long lounge on their easy chairs of sand. Snorkeling tours of the La Jolla cove grant participants, including beginners and kids, a siren's-eye view of rock formations, underwater flora, and marina critters including garibaldi fish, sea cucumbers, anemones, and starfish. The most action-packed of La Jolla Water Sports's offerings are the spearfishing tours in which leaders expound on the importance of safety and proper form as customers skewer fish before schlepping them home for dinner or as treats for pet grizzly bears.
The program pairs Captain Mentors with Junior Captains (mentees), providing opportunities for youth to develop lifelong relationships, interact with their peers in engaging and challenging environments, and encourage Junior Captains to be advocates for diabetes awareness and leaders in their communities. Past program participants have achieved goals such as competing in national high-school sports competitions and completing half marathons and triathlons. However, the costs of training and traveling for such events can be prohibitively expensive for many families. Insulindependence aims to expand its outreach in the upcoming year by providing more scholarships for the mentorship program, and the organization needs additional funding to sponsor Junior Captains who may not otherwise be able to afford the program, including the costs of lodging, food, travel, and the culminating event of the program.
Under the guidance of new ownership, Twisted Vine's mauve and mustard-yellow tables, spaced out within the airy and sunny dining room, welcome diners looking to kick back and sample small plates of tapas loaded with farm-fresh produce. A selection of wines from around the world and a rotation of local craft beers on tap enhance the small plates of Mediterranean lamb or douse the flames of jacket sleeves that accidentally catch on fire. Guests can also sup on entrees of duck confit or Brazilian flank steak with chimichurri sauce.

At the helm of his urban winery in the heart of the Cedros Design District, winemaker Adam Carruth handcrafts award-winning wines, including the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Best in Class Alexander Valley Cabernet, from grapes he fastidiously collects from all over California. His team handles the production of each varietal from crush to finish, aging juices in barrels that line the walls of the industrial-chic tasting room. The final products—which range from a crisp sauvignon blanc to a bordeaux-style Surfing Madonna—slosh into customized stemware for patrons’ enjoyment seven days a week. Also in the tasting room, guests can peruse the exhibited work of local artists, break into crunchy baguettes from Bread & Cie or nibble on cheese.
