Transparent Kayak Trip in Crystal Clear Water? Yes

What’s cooler than snorkeling, fishing, spearfishing, drinking beer, celebrating a buddy’s birthday, and kayaking all in the same day? Doing it all on a clear-bottomed (and clear-walled) kayak, that’s what.

Watch these amigos go for a 36-hour adventure on a kayak as clear as the ocean water it’s floating on.

The only thing cuter than our main dude’s clear adoration for aquatic life may be what happens to his voice when he encounters it. Watch the crew hang out with rays, jellyfish, dolphins, and even whales throughout the trip.

That it all ends with a birthday is, well, icing on the cake.

Sam has roamed the American continent to follow adventures, explore natural wonders, and find good stories. After going to college to be a writer, he got distracted (or saved) by rock climbing and spent most of the next decade on the road, supporting himself with trade work. He's had addresses in the Adirondack Mountains, Las Vegas, and somehow Kansas, but his heart belongs in the Texas hill country.
