The next Paddle & A Pint Tour is a special Bioluminescence edition on October 20, 2017. Tickets are $50/person. Sign up here.
Forget wine and dine dates, it’s all about kayaking and beer! Beginning on Saturday, May 27, 2017, A Day Away Kayak Tours and Playalinda Brewing Company in Titusville are teaming up for a new series of Paddle & A Pint experiences perfect for date night.
Kayaking is a great way to exercise your teamwork skills as a couple (trust me, you learn a lot about each other while in a tandem kayak) while enjoying the outdoors. Who knows, you might just discover a new hobby.
Tickets are typically $45-$50/person and include a guided kayak tour followed by a free pint of beer at Playalinda Brewing Company – Hardware Store in Titusville. Experiences range from bioluminescence (in season) to manatee encounters and bird watching.
The fun begins on a 90-minute guided kayak tour at the picturesque Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge with A Day Away Kayak Tours. Located near Titusville, the refuge is home to a variety of wildlife including dolphins, manatee, birds, gators, and more.
The tour is suitable for kayakers of all experience levels and the pace is leisurely. All kayaking equipment will be provided. You may get wet during the tour, so bring along a change of clothes. You’ll also want to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, and bug spray.
After soaking up nature at the refuge, the experience continues with a visit to Playalinda Brewing Company – Hardware Store, Titusville’s only craft beer micro-brewery. There you’ll find 11 Playalinda beers on tap including IPAs, ales, and stouts. Enjoy your free pint of craft beer (or a non-alcoholic drink) at a reserved table where you’ll mingle with your fellow paddlers.
