Exploring the sea on a stand-up paddleboard is more relaxing and safer than setting sail on a cardboard raft or trying to ride a stand-up tiger shark. Carve a wave at peace with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour stand-up paddleboard tour from Wahine Kai Surf School in Kennebunkport (a $40 value).
Wahine Kai Surf School's team of paddle-proficient surfers guide adventurers of all types through intimate and relaxing stand-up paddleboard tours. Reserved tours whisk participants away on their choice of three one-hour jaunts and bestow each paddler with a board, a wetsuit, booties, a personal flotation device, and a pet parrot to create an authentic seafaring experience. Expert instructors oversee each paddle cruise of no more than six amateur Leif Ericsons, providing nurturing instruction and educational commentary on local ecosystems. To keep summers endless, persistent paddlers can upgrade to a two-hour tour for an extra fee.
