After hundreds of wild kayaks found themselves up a creek without any paddles, humans realized their responsibility to domesticate the puzzled creatures. Help a kayak find direction with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a one-day kayak rental from Sun Island Beach Services (a $50 value).
Sun Island Beach Services outfits vacationers with kayaks, delivering the water vessels straight to their hotels or condos (pads and mounting straps are provided), or anywhere along the Indian River or other watery locales between Cocoa Beach and Wabasso. The rental grants landlubbers a bateau for up to eight hours of bicep buffing, wildlife gazing, or 16th century naval-battle reenacting before they reunite with kayak deliverers at their starting point at the end of the day. Hop in the cockpit and head for destinations such as the Indian River estuary, home to sea turtles, manatees, and dolphins. Blue herons preen themselves for upcoming prom dates, and an occasional bald eagle circles overhead in an endless search for hidden toupees. All rental equipment is in peak condition, and safety gear is included. Friendly, experienced staff members drop off and pick up kayaks promptly and provide answers to key questions such as “How do I stop this thing?” and “Are kayaks related to Tibetan yaks?”
