Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their craft and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a kayak-adventure package from Marsh Grass Adventures (a $120 value). The package includes:
- A two-hour kayak-instruction session in a heated pool.
- A two-hour guided kayak tour.<p>
Marsh Grass Adventures’ knowledgeable guides lead paddlers across Hilton Head Island waterways in hands-on tours full of close encounters with wildlife and tidal ecology tidbits. Prior to trips, adventurers outfitted with a single seat kayak, paddle, and life jacket undergo two hours of instruction in a heated pool to practice safety techniques, rowing movements, and Victorian sea shanties. Guide and guest then venture into the flowing waters surrounding the island in search of birds, fish, and curious dolphins that swim through the reeds.
Marshgrass Adventures' staff designs expeditions that explore their passion for the diverse ecology of the Lowcountry region. From fishing outings to leisurely kayak tours, the knowledgeable guides enlighten tour goers on the varied flora and fauna that litter the shorelines. The staff supports both catching and releasing or grilling the area's fish, which include trout, tarpon, and redfish. Guests on stand-up paddleboards slip out across the water, perfecting their balance quickly as they cut among swaying grasses and blue herons.
