The Central Michigan Skydivers experience begins with a basic safety training and the delivery of chicken scratch on a few important waivers. Once you're outfitted in safety gear, you'll climb up to 11,000 feet in one of the company's skyclimbing machines. Securely strapped to one of the human-eagle Tandem Masters—who have a combined experience of 20,000+ jumps and 50+ years—you'll plunge and free fall for 35–45 seconds before opening the safety blanket to float the rest of the way back to landlubbing life. Depending on your adrenaline-seeking style, your human backpack will happily help you descend in crazy spins and flips or uncomplicated serenity. Today's deal also includes 25% off a Central Michigan Skydivers T-shirt. Those who want to relive their experience can purchase a DVD recording of their jump for $75. Call in advance to schedule.

As a pair of kayaks rounds a bend in in the Chippewa River, the paddlers spy a blue kingfisher diving into the water to grab a fish before flying away with its catch. Nature continues its daily course as people gently float down the river's gentle currents on tubes or propel themselves along in kayaks or canoes. Chippewa River Outfitters helps renters make their own river-bound memories with trips that last from 1.5 hours to overnight. With a paddle or tube in hand, explorers get to take advantage of the river's cool waters and nature's free shows regardless of age or propensity for boat-tipping.

Captain Lee Robinson spent his childhood fishing Alabama’s inshore waters for trout, redfish, flounder and tripletail. His passionate pastime turned into a career—now a USCG-licensed boat captain with 15 years of fishing experience, Lee leads fishing trips for Mobile Bay Charters through the same shallow waters where he spent his youth. At the helm of his 24-foot Pathfinder, powered by a Yamaha 300-horsepower engine rather than a chariot of seahorses, he takes passengers to prime fishing spots in waters from Mobile Bay to Orange Beach.

For four decades, Buckley’s Mountainside Canoes has sent visitors paddling through the calm currents of the Chippewa River, winding through miles of natural forestland in Sylvan Solace, Deerfield, and Meridian Park. The river’s clear, unpolluted waters stretch before paddlers during trips that range anywhere from one to seven hours. Maintaining its longstanding tradition of keeping the river clean, Buckley’s equips paddlers with debris bags so they can snag rubbish along the way, if they choose.

Voted top public golf course in a Golf Digest reader's choice survey, Forest Dunes Golf Club's pristine 18-hole course, designed by Tom Weiskopf, spreads majestically across pine forests, birch groves, grasslands, and sand dunes. Spend a full day away from the tedium of work, chores, and meteorite attacks by navigating the lush landscapes of the par 72 course, steering a golf cart through multiterrain fairways and swinging your way through well-manicured grounds. Links lovers can practice their subtle strokes on the putting green and blast dimpled spheres at the practice range, perfecting swings and diffusing anger acquired after learning Pinocchio is a work of fiction. Although it's not included in this Groupon, golfers can grab a bite or slurp a drink in the clubhouse after a hard day of leisure.
