December 15, 2009|By Mike Kelly

Kijubi.com, a new Internet startup based in Laguna Beach, recently announced its company launch with the first activity booking engine to help California travelers and weekend warriors discover, research and book fun outdoor activities.

Designed to help consumers discover, research and reserve a myriad of activities for their next trip or day off, Kijubi aggregates thousands of outdoor activities from hundreds of independent vendors in the nation’s key recreational playgrounds, including some great activities in Newport Beach such as Whale Watching, Fishing Trips and Ferry Rides around the Catalina Islands.

“Outdoor activities represent the last unaggregated segment of the travel industry,” said Billy Fried, Founder and CEO of Kijubi. “While it’s easy to investigate and reserve flights, lodging, transportation, and dining options online, it’s still a challenge to find and book fun things to do when you arrive at your destination. The online travel agencies do a marvelous job of getting people to their location. Kijubi helps them figure out what to do once they are there to truly enhance their experience.”

From sea kayaking to skydiving to discount theme park passes, Kijubi offers over 70 categories of experiences, gifts and activities, easily navigated by theme, type, location, or occasion.

An intuitive user interface, advanced search options and easy checkout make it simple to discover and book activities in advance or while on a trip. Videos and detailed user ratings and reviews help to evaluate specific activities and vendors so users can plan their vacation or weekend fun in advance with confidence.

With the holidays right around the corner, Kijubi thought it would timely to roll out a new feature on the site: Active Gift Certificates, so you can give friends and family a holiday gift they’ll never forget like a Hot-Air Balloon ride through Napa Valley, Indoor Skydiving, Going Up in Glider Plane or Kite-Surfing Lessons.

There are literally hundreds of unique outdoor experiences all over California you can give to loved ones that would have been physically impossible to stuff into a Christmas stocking up until now.
