Even though water covers most of the earth's surface, humans spend most of their lives on land and a small portion in the air while they're sleeping. Float on with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $39 for a two-hour standup-paddleboard lesson and bald eagle eco tour for one (an $80 value)

The paddleboarding adventure starts when an expert guide teaches participants to paddle and maintain balance atop boards. After newbies hone their skills, they paddle out onto the flat and calm water of Rudee Inlet, passing sandy beaches and waterfront architecture. It's here that bald eagles might make an appearance, with the fully-guided tour passing near their nesting sites.

Rudee Inlet Stand Up Paddle

Rudee Inlet seems made for paddleboarding. Its flat, calm waters help new boarders master skills quickly, and when they're ready, paddlers can float out into the ocean. Randy Harris, the owner of Rudee Inlet Stand Up Paddle, recognizes that this area is something special. Harris is the third of four generations to live here, so he possesses a deep understanding of the water, one he further honed as a semiprofessional surfer. Today, he introduces others to the beauty of Rudee Inlet during paddleboard lessons and tours. The excursions such as their stand up paddle yoga class have proved popular—the business has been featured on Channel 3 News and the Travel Channel's show Bikinis and Boardwalks and attracted high-profile customers.
