Like a ’60s jam session, a boating trip fosters kinship, involves lots of swaying, and isn’t over until your hands are frozen in peace signs. Enjoy a groovy day with this Groupon.

A dry launch dispatches patrons down a protected gulf bay laden with secret channels, sunken boats, and the trashed easels of failed landscape painters. Patrons can stop at the mangrove islands to view a hidden campsite and then lazily paddle to Green Key Beach to take advantage of a swimming area, pavilions, and a wooden-boardwalk nature trail. The area teems with native fauna that includes manatees, dolphins, and a host of birds.<p>

About Windsong Charters & Boat Rentals
"We've got more canoes, kayaks and SUPs than fingers and toes to count them," Captain Wendy explains. "Also, two sailboats, eleven pontoons––all rentable. The funny thing is, this business came from a big accident." She's referring to the company’s inception in 2002, when a devastating hurricane led a friend to sign his company’s single sailboat over to Wendy and her husband, Bruce. "We were in marketing––then, suddenly, we were in boating." More than 12 years later, Windsong Charters & Boat Rentals has flourished under the duo’s stewardship. The company now performs 200 weddings each year and equips a wide range of patrons to revel in the breathless joy of cutting through playful zephyrs and out across the water. Wendy and Bruce encourage fishing and bringing pets on boating voyages, and the two share stories to delight guests or calm champagne bottles propped next to brand-new yachts. As propellers hum to life and paddles make a gentle kissing sound against the surf, visitors scan the horizon for the variety of wildlife that slips along just below the surf's surface or comes wheeling out of tufts of cumulonimbus. "I wish the animals would give us their schedules,” Wendy says, “but, on a given day, you could see manatees, dolphins, stingrays, and lots of birds."
