Water-propelled jetpack

1. Jetpack Experience

The future has come to San Diego with the world’s first water-propelled jetpack. Choose from a short 15-minute flight, or go all out with the 60-minute James Bond Flight Experience and zoom up to 25 feet above Mission Bay. If you just can’t get enough of this futuristic thrill, jetpacks are also available to purchase for a mere $9,979. jetpackamerica.com

2. Nite Ops Paddle Tour

Now paddleboard addicts don’t have to stop when the sun goes down. San Diego Bay Adventures has a new nighttime experience—a one-hour LED-lit paddleboard tour around the Sheraton Marina. Check out the nocturnal wildlife in San Diego Bay, and finish off the night with a fireside gathering complete with Hawaiian music and folklore. sdbayadventures.com
