  • Chula Vista Nature Center
    Step into to a bird's house. Get eye-to-eye with a moray eel. Greet a sea turtle as he swims up to say hello. The Living Coast Discovery Center isn't a nature museum—it's a chance to hang out with Southern California's plants and animals on their own turf. The Discovery Center's "living, breathing, flapping, buzzing, and splashing home" sits on the 316-acre Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, the ideal location for exploration of the region's most memorable residents in their native habitats. A walk-through aviary encompasses the tidal slough habitat of black-crowned night herons, red-breasted mergansers, and endangered clapper rail chicks, freshly hatched from the in-house breeding program. Bald and golden eagles await up-close encounters at the Eagle Mesa, but the rays get even closer: an interactive touch pool puts the aquatic creatures beneath your fingertips. Raptor Row hosts the Center's rescued birds of prey, all of which have injuries or other conditions that prevent them from surviving outside the refuge on their own. Visitors are also free to pursue their own wildlife adventure along the center's 1.5 miles of walking trails.

  • Seas The Day
    You don't need to take a long course to safely operate a small powerboat, but you do need a boat. Seas The Day is on a mission to make the thrilling experience of taking the wheel on the open seas a part of their clients' tours. Guides are there to provide narration and as much instruction as needed before turning over the driving responsibilities for each 15-foot Wahoo Powerboat to their customers and turning them into speedboat captains as they navigate San Diego Harbor's 12-mile expanse. Out on the water, you'll have the option to steer right up to the USS Midway aircraft carrier and tour the Coronado Bridge as views of the downtown skyline and Mexico's border come into view. You may even meet a sea lion or a dolphin, perhaps just long enough to witness the two realizing they're actually crazy about each other. To complete the visual, check out this behind-the-waters video. The subjects will likely look familiar, since the speedboat captains that day happened to be San Diego Padres players R.J. Alvarez and Jesse Hahn.
