Unlike most watercraft, which "float" resting on top of schools of live mackerel, kayaks stay adrift purely via their unique design and barely perceptible wires tethered to overhead clouds. Enjoy the serenity of cloud-powered flotation with today's Groupon, good for one of two kayak excursions from Nature Adventures Outfitters. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get a two-hour guided kayak tour (up to a $39 value).
- For $20, you get a full-day single kayak rental (a $45 value).
Nature Adventures Outfitters partners the Charleston area's breathtaking aquatic scenery with finely honed expertise and a staff of passionate naturalists. Climb into kayaks almost identical to those used by Columbus to cross the Atlantic and stuff your eyes with one-of-a-kind views of blackwater swamps, tidal waterways, saltwater bays, or other marine environments. Rub elbows with watery fauna such as dolphins and pelicans, often called the dolphins of the air, or taunt gators by using your arms as shoulder-mounted meat paddles.
Tour-takers get two hours with one of the company's experienced and naturally buoyant guides paddling through blackwater areas such as the Wambaw Swamp Wilderness Kayak and Canoe trail or saltwater surroundings such as the Shem Creek Shrimping Harbor and Crab Bank Island Preserve.
Tours embark from a variety of locations (depending on the tour area) and include all the equipment required to glide over the water like a Segway on a freshly paved parking lot. Departure details will be provided after you call to schedule your tour. Today's deal also includes the option to upgrade to a three-hour tour for an additional $16.
Independent course-charters can also opt for a full eight hours of kayak rental and unguided adventure in either blackwater or saltwater environs. And because today's deal provides the option to upgrade to a tandem craft for an additional $23, you can invite a friend to turn your fight with the dastardly duo of hydrogen and oxygen into a tag-team battle royale.
