Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a kayak nature tour from PaddleFish Kayaking (a $45 value), located on the banks of the Bull River at Bull River Marina on Highway 80 between downtown Savannah and Tybee Island.
The passionate outdoorsfolk and oarmongers at PaddleFish connect nature-starved families to the lush beauty of the southeastern United States. PaddleFish's kayak tour takes water-cutters of all levels on a roughly two-hour tour through scenic tidal creeks and mud flats that teem with wildlife. Friendly marsh explorers will tutor eager aquanauts on the basic techniques of kayaking and safety procedures before guiding them toward Bull River's wildlife-rich tributaries, which can yield a highlight reel of bottlenose dolphins, river otters, blue crabs, bald eagles, and toupee-clad ospreys. The towering sand dunes and maritime forest of Georgia's Golden Coast provide an untouched view of America's barrier islands and coastal ecosystems. En route, learned guides regale boaters with local lore, tales of Civil War battles, and the ups and downs of the region's traditional shrimp fleets, giving imaginations free reign to conjure the fertile frontiers of old and discover why hope floats.
Fair-weather paddlers needn't fret over their lack of home-owned equipment; PaddleFish will provide the sea kayak, paddle, and stylish personal flotation device, but encourages river ramblers to bring bottled water, sunscreen, sunglasses, a sunbonnet, and water-resistant sun shoes, such as plasmatic sandals and fusion flip-flops. Mindful of their obligations as stewards of the land, the eco-friendly folks at PaddleFish proudly donate services and a portion of sales to environmental groups that preserve the scenic beauty of the landscape they adore.
