Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one half-day guided kayak tour from Martha's Vineyard Eco Adventures (a $50 value). The two- to three-hour tours launch from 6 locations throughout Martha's Vineyard (destination must be designated when reserving).
After choosing your starting point for traversing the waters—be it Aquinnah, where Lobsterville Beach awaits, or Edgartown, where Spielberg filmed much of Jaws and _Animaniacs_—you're armed with a paddle and a veteran guide. A crash course in introductory kayaking techniques brings everyone up to speed before launch. Safe in your newly aquatic superiority, you and up to nine paddlemates smoothly coast through beautiful coastal waters and engage in educational feeding frenzies of engrossing anecdotes, local history, and wildlife. Kayaks, life jackets, and paddles are provided, and guests are advised to pack a sack lunch or giant sloppy sandwich to tide them over.
Paddlers must be at least 10 years old; those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
