Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a two-hour double kayak rental (up to a $45 value) from Bike and Kayak Tours in La Jolla.
With a fleet of wave-worthy watercrafts and guided tours, Bike and Kayak Tours sends oceanic adventurers seafaring in style. Navigate the scenic shoreline of the La Jolla Ecological Reserve in a sleek, stylish double kayak, sporting 100 percent more kayak than normal. Before filling your brain with images of the sparkly waterscape, a friendly staff member will equip you with a custom water map and whisper sweet nautical nothings about how to navigate your kayak back to shore. After the brief introduction, explore as much or as little of the area as your heart desires. A two-hour rental will provide ample animal encounters for you and your kayaking co-paddler, including greetings from sea lions, leopard sharks, and attention-seeking dolphins.
Though Bike and Kayak Tours sometimes offers a discount online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

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.
