Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

During each three- to four-hour adventure, a skilled guide leads duos and small groups through the gently undulating waters of the Cape Fear River toward Sharks Tooth Island. Once they reach their destination island, kayakers will savor a picnic dinner while basking in the multihued sunset and the natural scenery around them. Each trip leaves at approximately 5 p.m. depending on sunset times and includes a kayak, a paddle, a personal floatation device, safety gear, and a picnic dinner. Instructions are available for first-time kayakers.

Mahanaim Adventures

The photogenic port city of Wilmington, North Carolina, may look familiar to visitors—it’s been the setting of various TV shows and films, among them Dawson’s Creek and Cape Fear. The pristine, natural surroundings are the ideal setting for Mahanaim Adventures, a family-run business helmed by Don and Diane Harty. They make it their job to showcase the natural splendor with which the area flourishes, such as salt marshes, loggerhead sea turtles, great blue herons, and 2,000-year-old bald cypress trees whose cousins' branches are actually covered by toupees. Together, the duo harnesses their extensive outdoor adventure experiences—and even CPR and first-aid certifications—to lead a wide range of nature jaunts, helping participants explore the picturesque rivers, shark tooth–laden islands, and verdant woods during kayaking and backpacking trips.

from Wilmington and enjoyed a unique evening away from the kids, doing something adventurous while also seeing the beauty of the area we live in.

We got to see some local birds, had a great time kayaking, and even got to explore the islands before dinner on the beach of a small island
