What You'll Get
Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with today's Groupon from Miss Chris Kayak Rentals and Tours in Cape May. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a two-hour single kayak rental (up to a $25 value).
- For $20, you get a two-hour double kayak rental (up to a $40 value).
Miss Chris Kayak Rentals and Tours lends out seafaring floaters for adventures along Cape Island Creek. Paddling patrons can meander through the creek's waters, catching sight of nesting osprey, herons, and egrets as well as views of the Cape May cityscape. The calm creek water accommodates both novice and advanced captains, and the raft renters provide life vests for the buoyancy impaired. The boat loaners boast 10 different styles and sizes of kayaks, and paddlers can choose a single seater for an individual experience or a double seater to allow room for themselves and the radiators to which they inadvertently became handcuffed. Customers can upgrade to a tour for a guided experience.
Though Miss Chris Kayak Rentals and Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Miss Chris Kayak Rentals and Tours
While waiting for a group of tour participants aboard his kayak on Cape Island Creek, Bob Lubberman made a new acquaintance when a 4-foot great blue heron landed on the nose of his boat. It's not an entirely new experience for the owner of Miss Chris Kayak Rentals and Tours, as opportunities to commune with nature came often as he crabbed and fished as a child from his grandmother's dock. Now he's able to connect visitors to this ecosystem as they independently paddle rented sit-on-top kayaks or as they participate in guided kayak or boat tours.
Paddlers on kayak tours often catch close-ups of ospreys, terns, and other birds, and see diamondback terrapin turtles sunning themselves on the shore or trying to hold their own ice-cream cones. Day and sunset tours let guests explore the wildlife-rich salt marshes, and night tours led during high tide let them paddle over grassy terrain to otherwise inaccessible areas. Guests explore similar territory on tours aboard the Osprey as they watch migrating shore birds or look out on the harbor's historic buildings. Kayak tour guides include an associate naturalist and a Cape May Bird Observatory field associate, and land-based staffers maintain a touch tank on the Miss Chris mooring dock, which they temporarily fill with conches, eels, and other sea life pulled up using open-sided conservation traps.
