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 $35, you get your choice of a guided snorkeling tour (a $70 value), a stand-up paddleboard tour (a $55 value), or a kayak tour (a $55 value) from San Diego Excellent Adventures.

San Diego Excellent Adventures coalesces the expertise of practiced guides into fun and illuminating aquatic tours for casual adventure seekers. Providing a mask, snorkel, fins, and a 7-millimeter wetsuit, the water-recreation emporium outfits squadrons of snorkelers for guided sightseeing at La Jolla Cove Underwater Park. The tour encourages aqueous adventurers to laugh at lolling sea lions, exchange furtive glances with a harbor seal, or stare at temperate fish until they grow uncomfortable and excuse themselves from the dinner reef.

At the San Diego location, stand-up paddleboarding affords views of one of the largest man-made bays astride a nimble craft similar to a buoyant board on which one might surf or iron. No previous experience is required to command the board and paddleboarding is renowned for its gentle learning curve. Steer your vessel with the assistance of a friendly guide, who illuminates the salient features of the local landscape. Home to a number of rare and endangered species, such as the California least tern, Mission Bay boasts 19 sandy beaches and a variety of bountiful vistas.

Opt to tour the serene surroundings of the same pristine bay atop a sit-on-top kayak replete with backrest, life jacket, and paddle. The human propulsion system of a well-maneuvered kayak provides an exhilarating sense of speed, and velocity seekers can fine tune a side-to-side paddling motion many times more efficient than rowing one's own trireme. No previous kayaking experience is necessary.

San Diego Excellent Adventures

Disguised in wetsuits, flippers, and diving masks, humans almost seem indistinguishable from the scores of aquatic life that thrive among the San Diego coastline. In the water, curious sea lions tug playfully at divers' fins, and thick stalks of kelp wave like Queen Elizabeth telling the gathered crowd to go home already. With access to five separate sites in which to see such wonders, the guides at San Diego Excellent Adventures tailor their adventures—whether snorkeling, diving, or paddling—around the experience level of each tour group, ensuring an easy assimilation to undersea life.

During guided dives along La Jolla Shores, swimmers peer in on frolicking creatures such as lobsters, octopuses, and leopard sharks, and standup paddleboards grant access to Mission Bay's shoreline views previously seen only by terribly lost Venetian gondoliers. Currently the largest manmade bay in the country, Mission is known for its calm waters suited to beginners just learning to explore the ocean.
