Aqua Adventures is a great way for visitors or locals to get a real sea level experience in San Diego. It's located on Mission Bay. If your phone has a GPS it might be good to put the address in for some directions the first time you go. I was a little nervous on my first visit, but SO impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. A single kayak (my interest, although the have paddleboards and other things) rents for $16.50 for up to an hour and a half. You can get kayaks with or without rudders, singles or doubles They'll also rent you a wet suit if you need one. If you come in straight from touring or work, there's a changing room where you can get into your paddling outfit of choice. Within less than a 10 minute paddle is a yellow metal buoy with some lazy seals lounging on top. Highly recommended.
