Some Water-Based Activities Are More Fun with Friends

There are more than 30 beaches in San Diego County alone, so it should come as no surprise that water-based activities are popular nearly year-round, and there are a number of hotels in San Diego that are close to both pristine beaches and popular attractions. Some water-based activities, such as kayaking, boating, canoeing, and even fishing from the Coronado Ferry Landing Pier tend to be more enjoyable with friends. Plus, with activities like kayaking and canoeing, it can be helpful to have a buddy or two along to help with the paddling or rowing.
