Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour beginner's kayak-paddling class on Wasilla Lake from Alaska Kayak Academy (a $50 value).

Alaska Kayak Academy's expert instructors help kayakers plunge paddles into Alaska's wild lakes, rivers, and bays. To begin the paddling class, a master mariner launches beginning boaters from Wasilla Lake's tree-covered slopes out across the gently rippling aqua surface, where nautical navigators learn the key kayak strokes: sweep, rudder, forward, draw, and sculling. After conquering feats of maneuverability, vessel pilots learn the proper techniques for stopping kayaks while reciting the lyrics to the "Banana Boat" song. Fledgling flotationists ages 10 and older can glide serenely for two hours, steering their cozy, stable seacraft with confidence and dreaming of future expeditions across the open waters of Olympic-size wave pools.

Alaska Kayak Academy

The instructors at Alaska Kayak Academy share their love for sea kayaking by training and leading adventures in Alaska's rivers and coastal waters. Scheduled year-round, classes range from basic paddling instruction to deep-water rescue techniques. Guided trips cater to all levels of paddlers, with day trips along salmon runs and through the glacial ice of Prince William Sound. Rentals equip paddlers for independent exploration, refining skills, and humming quietly to themselves in peace. Alaska Kayak Academy also encompasses a store, where staff advise on gear such as new and used kayaks and the trendiest way to don a life jacket.
