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 $28, you get a river adventure for two from Perdido Natural Adventures (up to a $56 value).
Perdido Natural Adventures rents kayaks, tubes, and canoes for traversing the tranquil currents of the Perdido River, the natural border between Florida and Alabama. Hourly shuttles ship sailors out to the river from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., where pair of seafaring friends may board their watercrafts and embark on their watery journeys, just as Indians, Eskimos, and waterpark attendees have done for centuries before. Couples can spend a day making sandmen and sand angels on the shores of the river's sugary white beaches and frolicking in its shallow waters. Bald eagles, wild turkeys, kingfishers, and other feathered rarities circle above, while bass, catfish, and bream swim bellow. Shipmates may bring along picnic sustenance and trail baskets and coolers behind them on a complimentary tube, or whittle a makeshift spear and dive into the river to wrestle down catfish. Travelers who bring camping gear may spend the night at the river, where they may set up camp on a sandbar and let the hum of woodland creatures lull them to sleep.
Perdido requests that guests not bring glass bottles in order to preserve the river's natural environment, and suggests that boaters arm themselves with sunglasses, sunscreen, water, and insect repellent. Couples with young children may bring them along as well, as the tour is free for pipsqueak pioneers under the age of 11.
Perdido Natural Adventures
Winding through dense, verdant forests, the peaceful waters of the Perdido River form an aquatic highway for Perdido Natural Adventures' fleet of canoes, kayaks, and tubes. The company's rental watercrafts facilitate journeys into the natural habits and underground gambling rings of bald eagles, wild turkeys, beaver, and deer. As vessels float along the bass-filled river, white sand beaches beckon adventurers to swim and play in the water. Perdido Natural Adventures' shuttle facilitates each expedition, carrying rentals or customers' own vessels from Fran's Country Grill to various launch points along the river. The staff can also arrange overnight camping trips with the centaurs that manage the forest.
