Although walking tours can be a wonderful way to take in the natural world, only a kayak tour lets you high-five a starfish or challenge a whale to a breath-holding contest. Commune chummily with nature with today’s Groupon to Shark River Kayak Company in Belmar. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get a two-hour kayak rental with two single kayaks for two people (a $50 value).
• For $50, you get a guided sunset kayak tour with two single kayaks for two people (a $118 value).
Shark River Kayak Company outfits adventure seekers with all of the equipment and instruction necessary for an intrepid seafaring expedition. After receiving a paddle and personal flotation device from the friendly, knowledgeable staff, explore the five-mile circumference of the Shark River’s back bay on a sit-on-top single kayak, which offers all of the benefits of a convertible car without the possibility of a streetlight falling into your lap. Each day, during the last hour of the outgoing tide, sunset kayak tours with up to ten people shove off toward the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way, a tour guide will point out the wonders of this tidal ecosystem, such as coral formations or fish slacking off in summer school. As the tide begins to move inward once again, so does the tour, tapping the natural flow of the tidal system and providing for a leisurely paddle home. Tandem kayaks are available for adults who are accompanying children.
Shark River Kayak Company is closed for the 2011 season. This Groupon can be redeemed during the 2012 season from June 9 until Labor Day weekend.
