Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their craft and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a half-day guided kayak tour from 1000 Islands Kayaking in Gananoque (up to a $96.05 value, including HST). Admission for kids is regularly $45, plus HST.
1000 Islands Kayaking manoeuvres sightseers around the beautiful meanderings of the St. Lawrence River and its embedded islands during three-hour guided tours. Friendly and certified guides begin each day with a 14-egg smoothie and a Kayaking 101 lesson, so paddlers of all experience levels and vintages feel comfortable in their single-serving schooners. Wind through the pristine Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, one of the most biologically diverse regions of Canada, and hop islands formed from an ancient granite mountain range. A huge variety of wildlife accepts challenges to staring contests, and hiking trails and swimming beaches advance opportunities to kiss Mother Nature gently on the cheek. Every group includes one guide for a maximum of eight people, and 1000 Islands Kayaking provides its navigators with necessary supplies, including equipment, dry bags, and rain jackets. Boat people who want to use this Groupon to upgrade to a full-day tour or weekend trip get an additional 10 per cent off.
