Tall Ship Adventures Aboard Californian

Official Tall Ship of California day sail

The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California.

Join the crew in sailing a traditionally rigged tall ship. Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and end their day with a cannon salute. Watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian’s crew relates the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship’s gunnery, life at sea and more.

San Diego Craft Brewery Tour

Jan 4 - ongoing

We leave our Downtown San Diego location and visit the epi-center of America's craft beer scene. We will board our merry bus and visit breweries such as Green Flash, known for their IPA's and fun loving Pacific Ales - we do a production tour of their facility. We do a behind the scenes tour at Ballast Point Brewery with a possible stop at a mystery brewery. Lunch is served at Green Flash, which serves award winning foods and has dozens of craft beer on tap. The last brewery will be either Ale Smith or Rough Draft.

This tour is for the hard core beer lover, and includes hoppy and earthy brews. You will go behind the scenes and learn from local brewers how their unique beer is made. This is our best selling tour!

The Plank Road

Mar 15, 2018 - ongoing

Picture yourself back in 1918 trying to cross the burning desert of Imperial County. You reach the treacherous Imperial Sand Dunes and face the challenge of a seamless ocean of sand. With relief and anxiety you begin to ascend the first dune on the Plank Road. The heat, swirling sand, and jarring ride across the rough planks makes you nauseous, but you are grateful since this new route offers safety and cuts many hours off the adventurous trip across the desert.
