Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog
A morning hike to stunning city views, in a dog friendly park with our rescue dogs! We will enjoy a nice walk up hiking trails to the top of Runyon Canyon. Fantastic city views, and the perfect view of the Hollywood Sign! As you climb your way up the hill with your new pals in tow, you’ll be exercising and socializing the dogs, and letting locals know they’re up for adoption. You’ll also become a puppy paparazzi and take their photos in front of panoramic backdrops—you can even pose with them with the famous Hollywood sign behind you. Your pictures will then be used to generate interest in the rescue organization, attract potential adopters, and bring in donations that will help further care for and foster the dogs until they find their forever homes. This experience is great for groups and great for teams! We love to host private and corporate groups, and socializing with the dogs is great for team-building! Other things to note: We will be in direct sun, so bring sunscreen and other protective wear. There are no bathrooms in Runyon Canyon. Your friendly dog is welcome to join us! Street parking is very difficult.
The Hollywood Sign Hike & COMEDY Tour

We're gonna tell you approx 3000 jokes (some dad-related) about Los Angeles, ourselves, our experiences in LA, maybe a Justin Bieber story? Also, no one has better dad jokes than us. Not even my own dad. (Sup Dad)! This experience is great for groups, teams, and individual solo travelers. We're about becoming best FRIENDS. At the start, I’m gonna hand you the best tasting WATER in the history of water. All that and we haven even walked yet? INCREDIBLE. From there, we'll have y'all laughing so hard at our jokes and stories that you'll forget that we are hiking up a hill to the Hollywood Sign. Did we just become best friends?? WHAT ABOUT THE PICTURES? We stop at the BEST PHOTO STOPS for your own Cover Shoot. I've designed this hike for Instagram and can GUARANTEE You'll get 10+likes/photo. You’ll receive PROFESSIONAL photos of the sign, the skyline, and scenic panoramas that may break the internet with likes. Other tours take 1-2 pictures. I'll give you 75+ (Best Friend Move). We've been doing this for 5 years and love being the LA ambassadors to the world. Let us be your friend in LA and show you how LA is done by an actual local and not a "tour company."

Ocean wildlife tour/fast boat adventure
Join me on a 2 hour tour aboard a Zodiac in search of ocean wildlife! We'll be on the lookout for whales, dolphins, and sea lions! You'll be coming along aboard Newport Coastal Adventure which has the fastest whale watching boats in California (up to 50MPH). The speed is half the fun but it also allows us to cover more ocean than anyone else in the area. These Zodiac boats are one of the safest boats to be on and we are the only small boat whale watching tour in Newport Beach to be inspected and approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. Of course there is never a guarantee to see whales or dolphins, your best odds of seeing both off the orange County coast are with me on these boats. Don't be fooled be other small boat operators advertising as whale watching in Newport Beach, this tour is the original, best, and we are the most experienced. As the photographer/deckhand/drone pilot aboard this boat, I'll be sharing photos I get from each trip with you (if I get good ones). If you are into photography, I'm always happy to help give you photo tips! Things to note: - My trips are only available during the weekends - Arrive 30 minutes ahead of time to check in - Bring layers to stay warm.
