Although kayaks and racecars are two of the world’s most popular palindromes, only one maintains its luster when thrown in the ocean. Paddle a buoyant piece of wordplay with this Groupon.
$39 for a Kayak Tour of the 7 Caves and Ecological Reserve for Two (Up to $99 Value)
Explorers navigate a double kayak along a two-hour tour through natural alcoves, spying swimming sea lions and leopard sharks in the sandy flats. Before the tour, guides give a brief paddling and safety lesson to make sure no one gets left behind or stuck in second gear. Depending on water conditions, guides may also steer parties through the Clam’s Cave, the final cave on the route and the largest of all seven stops.
Bike & Kayak Tours
A crew of former athletes and passionate locals with a love for the outdoors wait beneath the bright-red awnings at each Bike & Kayak Tours location to guide multiple expeditions through the natural sights around San Diego. Since lessons are included—along with life vests—no prior kayaking experience is needed, and tour-goers can choose between single, double, and triple sit-on-top kayaks designed for stability.
The 7 Caves and Ecological Reserve kayak tour sends paddlers on an expedition to a 75-million-year-old sandstone cliff with seven sculpted sea caverns that resound echoes in seven-part harmony. Another tour brings kayakers along the San Diego Bay, emphasizing the city's architecture with views of the skyscrapers and the award-winning Coronado Bridge. In the spring, snorkeling trips follow the seasonal migration of leopard sharks as students paddle in the shallow waters of the sandy flats with harmless predators.
