Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

A certified Florida coastal naturalist guide leads paddlers through the Indian River Lagoon, one of North America’s most ecologically diverse estuaries. As the vessels glide through mangrove-framed waters, passengers search for glimpses of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, often catching cameos of manatees, bald eagles, and leaping mullet fish. Sightseers can embark on morning or afternoon tours. Check the schedule for times.

Marine Discovery Center

Local creek waters and river tributaries empty into an estuary along more than 150 miles of Florida's east coast. There, the freshwaters mix with salty Atlantic currents to form the Indian River Lagoon. The lagoon supports the highest levels of biodiversity found in any North American estuary. Preserving this delicate and species-rich ecosystem is the goal of Marine Discovery Center, a nonprofit corporation headquartered on the banks of the river. The MDC connects citizens to nature through kids’ summer camps, educational outreach, and frog-kissing booths. Kayak tours allow guests of all skill levels to navigate through the mangrove-framed waters of the lagoon in search of native birds, leaping mullet fish, and even Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. On board a 40-passenger pontoon boat, tour and charter groups safely visit the lagoon's toad fish, stingrays, and roaming turtles while not harming the singular habitats.
