Bachelor Party Ideas in San Diego

Looking for a great town for a bachelor party? San Diego should be at the top of your list for a place to party in California. Great night life, solid location, and plenty to do. There are plenty of activities for high strung, laid back, or hard partier.  Here’s a list of bachelor party ideas in the San Diego Area :

Beer Tasting – Yeah, you like drinking beer, but do you know the difference between ale and a lager? Can you tell a Tettnanger hop from a Cascade hop just by the floral aroma and taste? Or maybe you don’t care. Either way, you’ll have a great time blowing the frost off some great local microbrews with your best friends.

Check out some of our beer tasting packages

Ropes Course - Admit it: when you watch Indiana Jones movies, you always think you could do the stunts and make your way through the labyrinths you see on the screen. This is your chance to prove it on a high ropes course for the bachelor party. Test your puzzle-solving skills and athleticism 60 feet above ground! This is the definition of adventure. San Diego is home to some amazing courses.  Check out one of our previous ropes course parties.

ATV Trips - The back tires throw up a rooster tail of sand as you blow through the last stretch of the beach, and then you’re slowing to start the ascent. These mountain trails were part of the Baja 500, you remember, and you grin and gun it. The quad growls beneath you and you rocket uphill. At the top is a stunning view of Mexican terrain, a view and an experience you and your buddies will never forget. An ATV trip in the gorgeous landscape around San Diego captures the heart of bachelor party.  A few guys getting together for one last adventure (until the next one).

Paintball – You dive for cover just as a flurry of paintball rounds splatter on the ground behind you. That was close—too close. You call out for your teammates to lay down some covering fire, but no one answers. It’s just you now, and oh yeah, the guys waiting to put a paintball between your shoulder blades. You’ve got mad skills, though, and now’s the time to prove it.  Do you have what it takes to see the Groom through?

Rock Climbing -  Some 50 feet below you, at the bottom of the rock face, your friends are watching, and beyond them stretches the desert, dotted with the one-of-a-kind Joshua trees. You take a deep breath of desert air, then reach up to start the final crux of the climb and hope your arms and legs don’t give out on you. San Diego sports some phenomenal rock climbing spots. Get the crew together and jump on the rocks for a crazy fun adventure

Shooting – Sorry, but your shooting skills in Nintendo’s Duck Hunt don’t prove anything. It’s time to step into a real shooting range, strap on a real-life firearm, and test your skills on a modern 8-position skills challenge. The competition is on and bragging rights are at stake. Grab a gun and prove whether you’re a Dirty Harry or a Dirty Mary. Don’t let the rest of the Groom’s friends show you up…

Sarthak’s Last Stand – San Diego Bachelor Party

sarthak02

We received an email from Sarthak’s Best Man Josh a few weeks ago. He was looking for some “fun stuff outdoors” in San Diego as he sat freezing in his apartment in Chicago. Fun? Outdoors? Welcome to our world Josh! A few emails later we had packaged our kick awesome ropes course with a trip on the Pacific in kayaks for Sarthak’s bachelor party. Sarthak and crew were cool enough to let us send a camera along. We got to see first hand what a funny, adventurous, tight knit group of friends he has. Thanks guys!

Sarthak picked the nickname on everyone’s name tag… names like Dinglebarry, Akon, Rapey, and Big Wang were par for the course. It’s his party he can call you whatever he wants.

Our group had a blast on the ropes course! Ryan, [the facilitator], not only showed us what to do, but also brought us together for some heartfelt moments. — Govind

Sarthak must have some SERIOUS mojo because despite the ominous clouds, no rain fell on this group.

Sarthak was the first man up and set the tone for the rest of the group….

Orange County Bachelor & Bachelorette Party Destination

theocOrange County is known for sun, surf, and for birthing Lauren Conrad’s career on everybody’s favorite train wreck  Laguna Hills.  When you strip away the sun baked deb-mutants Orange County reveals some of Southern California’s famed “California Dreaming”. It’s got the shopping, the beaches, and plenty of places to feast.  In a single day you could take a boat around the harbor, make candles, decorate cupcakes, fly an F16(virtually), pole dance, deep sea fish, zipline, paintball, and so much more. We don’t advise doing all of that in one day but it’s theoretically possible. Theoretically.

Our Orange County locations satisfy our bachelor party criteria easily:

  • Transportation - is it easy to get around?
  • Proximity – Is everything ie. bars, clubs, hotels, etc close to each other? Are there some cool daytime excursions close to the area for the bachelorette party?
  • Saturation - Does the area have a strong selection of clubs, restaurants, bars, etc?
  • Safety – Would a group feel comfortable wandering around the streets at 2 in the morning?
  • Lodging – What’s the hotel or vacation rental situation?

In Orange County a Bachelor Party can range from fishing to cooking like a man or take advantage of the great surfing.  For the Bachelorette Party you can take great boudoir shots, take a bike ride or go kayaking.  We have lots of great packages to suit all your needs.

Orange County Bachelor Party Packages:

  • Maximum Overdrive – If  you are an adrenaline junky then this package is for you, take your chance in a Fighter Jet Simulator, then burn some rubber on a race track.
  • Tarzan – 60ft above the ground, test your puzzle solving skills and zip back down to earth on our high ropes course
  • Fish & Fare – Perfect location to catch dinner for the evening.

Orange County Bachelorette Party Packages:

  • Wicks & Wine – Design and Make your own candle, then sample a few wines
  • Cruising Temptations – Cook a scrumptious meal from your choice of menus, then take out an electric boat round the harbor and crack open the champagne
  • Cheers – Join your favorite friends for a mimosa cruise round the harbor – bliss

Married ON MySpace

Since we’re new to blogging, you’ll have to excuse us while we play catch-up.

Exciting news for FireFly (of course we had to go out and celebrate) – We were contacted by The Knot the number one, one-stop wedding planning guide for all your wedding needs.  They collaborated with MySpace to produce the interactive reality series – ‘Married on MySpace’.

The concept: Each week America voted on two key wedding elements (dress, location etc) for Elle and Tito’s big day.  The series ended with a live broadcast of the wedding.

FireFly’s part in the action:  We were asked to put together 3 bachelor party and 3 bachlorette party packages. We contacted a number of our fabulous vendors and with them put together 6 unique experiences for Elle and Tito’s bachelor and bachelorette parties.  It was then up to America to vote on what Tito and Elle would get to do. For Elle it was chocolate making, boudoir photos, or spa treaments and for Tito there was a choice of gentlemen’s club, paintball, or a high ropes adventure.

We had a lot of fun with our vendors and the film crew. We KNOW Elle and Tito had a blast. You’ll have to watch the videos to see what America chose.
