Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with the help of today's Groupon to Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina in Fawnskin. Choose between the following options:

Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina sits on the serene north shore of Big Bear Lake, equipping finless aqua fans with the seafaring vehicles they need to explore the pristine area waters. After selecting and mounting one of the marina's buoyant steeds, venture into Grout Bay and endeavor to catch sight of nesting bald eagles, great blue herons, osprey, and beavers. Snuggle into a canoe or kayak for water-level views of animal habitats, or rest tootsies atop a stand-up paddle board to peer down into the water and see which fish are accompanied by squeezed lemon from birth. Water-skimming ships are first come, first served, but reservations are recommended for large groups.
Captain John's Fawn Harbor & Marina
Along the northern edge of Big Bear Lake sits Fawnskin Harbor, a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Captain John's Fawn Harbor & Marina calls this serene alcove home, housing boats and doling out rental watercraft. From the harbor's docks and moorings, visitors launch pontoons, speedboats, canoes, and kayaks toward Grout Bay, a bald-eagle nesting site that also teems with great blue herons, osprey, and beavers. The wildlife sanctuary can also be infiltrated via standup paddleboard, a Hawaii-born craft that delivers a challenging core workout. Tours on an electric boat cruise the boulder- and tree-ringed bay area while passengers explore the lake, learn local history, and glimpse the lake's namesake surreptitiously brushing his coat.
