Seated in your kayak, you're surrounded by cerulean waters that stretch out into the horizon. To your left, the San Francisco skyline looms in the shimmering afternoon sun. You drift by a raucous Giants game, a village of houseboats, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Led through undulating waters by American Canoe Association– and Wilderness First Aid–certified guides, San Francisco Kayak & Adventures' nautical tour groups traverse the San Francisco Bay or Sausalito waterfront during the day, at sunset, and under the light of the full moon. The guides lead their groups through calm costal waters in sturdy, closed-deck tandem kayaks, which keep legs dry and don't require typical Flintstone-style paddling. The guides regale their group with area history while pointing out local marine life. They only shepherd about eight paddlers to keep tours intimate and personal and customize paddling instruction to the ability levels of the group.

Guides also help visitors explore the natural world on land during hiking excursions between redwood trees in Muir Woods, along a coastal trail in the Tennessee Valley, and past ghost-town buildings at China Camp Village. To expand visitors' wilderness exposure, they also lead adventures such as sailing, rock-climbing, cycling in the city, horseback riding on the beach, and sleeping in phone booths.

Eva Claiborne grew up in Hungary—a country renowned for its rejuvenating hot springs and lavish spas. She received her master's in skincare after five years of graduate training in Budapest, and in 1989, she moved to the United States. Today, she has more than 30 years of spa and skincare experience, which guides her as she treats women and men of every age.

Eva's specialty skincare services work to diminish an array of skin problems, including age spots, rosacea, and portraits of Marty Feldman drawn in permanent marker. Her luxurious Hungarian-style facials, meanwhile, regale faces with lavish treatments, including one that incorporates a 24-karat colloidal gold serum. Her body treatments range from slimming wraps to her own signature "shell and chakras" therapy, which uses aromatherapy oil and seashells to massage bodies and balance chakras.

The products Eva uses are every bit as luxurious as her services, from her own Inderma line, forged from fair-trade ingredients to treat pre- and post-operative plastic-surgery patients, to European formulas such as Omorovicza and Germaine De Capuccini.
