After their successful 1804 expedition, Lewis and Clark took work as boat tour guides, drawing on Lewis's penchant for humorous banter and Clark's ability to fashion GPS systems out of driftwood. Relive the adventure with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a private, four-hour shrimping trip for up to six people from May River Excursions in Bluffton (a $400 value).

Helmed by Coast Guard–licensed Captain Chris Shoemaker, May River Excursions treats aspiring seafarers to aquatic adventures. The four-hour shrimping excursion embarks to local fishing hot spots where adults, children, and anglers of all abilities can cast off to net the ocean's tastiest treasures. As sailors take turns reeling in catches, crew members can relax on the deck of a 24-foot Carolina Skiff boat, relishing libations and snacks that they supply themselves. After the trip, groups can keep their catches—up to 48 quarts—for delicious seafood boils or to mount and proudly display above their living-room mantel. Throughout the journey, ocular orbs can take in up-close views of the river's diverse wildlife, which includes great blue herons craning their necks, ospreys soaring overhead, and dolphins plotting the overthrow of humanity.

To keep adventures exciting and safe, May River recommends toting along sunscreen, towels, hats, cameras, and Poseidon repellent.

May River Excursions

The Shoemaker clan has been sailing around the East Coast since the 1600s, making the family as native to South Carolina as the state's alligators and seaside bluffs resembling John C. Calhoun. After inheriting an in-depth aquatic knowledge from his father, who spent 25 years as a commercial fisherman, Captain Chris Shoemaker—a Coast Guard–licensed captain—conveys that love of the water to even more generations by leading fishing, shrimping, and crabbing excursions on his 24-foot Carolina Skiff boat. Collectively known as May River Excursions, Captain Chris and his crew make twice-daily trips to Daufuskie Island, a rustic, historical idyll with a single schoolhouse, dirt roads, and wild bald eagles, armadillos, and alligators that still comprise the island's local constabulary. The guides also lead regular 90-minute tours along the May River in search of ospreys, egrets, and dolphins, always including a history lesson about the country surrounding the towns of Bluffton and Hilton Head.
