Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for a two-hour recreational-kayak rental for one (a $25 value)
- $22 for a two-hour tandem-kayak or canoe rental for two (a $45 value)
Rentals afford guests two hours to gently paddle through the waters of Lincoln Woods State Park. The 10- to 12-foot recreational kayak is built for a single rider, and a tandem kayak or canoe accommodates two. Rentals include paddles and flotation vests, and staff can provide a brief demonstration of how to enter and exit the vessel. Rentals are available on weekends in May through September from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and midweek from Memorial Day through Labor Day from noon to 7 p.m.
The instructors at EMS Schools traverse rocky, paved, and watery terrain from New England down to Virginia, imparting people with their love of the outdoors along the way. Dating back more than 40 years, the EMS Climbing School teaches pupils of all ages the tenets of climbing through introductory classes and more advanced maneuvering in self-rescue, alpine climbing, and glacier-skills classes. The watery wing of EMS's operation includes kayaking and standup-paddleboard lessons, which can help students earn certification in these water-bound endeavors, and group tours. EMS-led bike tours trace a path through the rolling hills of the Berkshires, the mansions of Newport, as well as the powdered-sugar-topped White Mountains of New Hampshire.
