When the river wizard cursed canoes by shrinking them, he didn't realize the resulting kayaks would one day plunge through his mouth and dock in his small intestine. Join the never-ending fight against aquatic madmen with today's Groupon: for $34, you get an introductory lesson to recreational or sea kayaking at Bill Jackson's Shop for Adventure in Pinellas Park (a $68 value).
Bill Jackson's Shop for Adventure is a full-service outfitter providing adventure apparel and instruction to outdoor enthusiasts. With this deal, Grouponers can choose between a lesson in recreational or sea kayaking to fulfill their nautical needs. The four-hour sea-kayaking lesson is broken into two two-hour sessions during which ocean-bound students will learn rescue skills, fundamental techniques, and canoe insults. In the 3-hour recreational lesson, aspiring aqua navigators will practice entries, reentries, rescues, and paddle techniques. To avoid insidious dolphin pranks, lessons are held in the heated indoor pool and the on-site lake.
Serving Tampa Bay since 1951, this military surplus store–turned adventure outfitter stocks gear and apparel to accommodate just about any extreme athlete, from backpacking and camping to snow skiing, dodo hunting, and scuba diving.
