The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry. Taste the tide with today’s Groupon: for $27, you get a two-hour guided stand-up paddleboard eco tour from Surfguys Surf School in Melbourne Beach (a $65 value).
Surfguys Surf School steers seafaring adventurers on a scenic journey along the Space Coast. First-time paddlers learn boarding basics in a 10-minute on-land overview followed by a 20-minute briefing at sea designed to aid oceanic explorers in summoning their sea legs. During the two-hour tour, as many as five stand-up paddlers soak up calming natural stimuli, from the vast ocean to the abundant fauna. Along the way, travelers may spot dolphins, manatees, cranes, and vacationing penguins. Surfguys provides all requisite paddling equipment, but patrons are advised to bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a light-colored T-shirt to attract compliments from fashion-savvy dolphins. Tours are on a request basis and best scheduled during the morning when weather conditions are ideal.
