Kayaks are quieter than motorboats, allowing riders to observe skittish wildlife and safely drift by lake monsters canvassing for political candidates. Evade mind-numbing chitchat with this Groupon.

During three-hour tours, American Canoe Association certified kayak instructors escort groups over flat waters, helping paddlers of all skill levels master proper navigation and safety techniques. They equip paddlers with kayaks, paddles, flotation devices, and whistles, as well as dry bags for stowing personal items. The current season ends on October 31 before opening up for the 2014 season on May 1.

Norton Kayak Company

After winding its way past Foxborough and Mansfield, the Rumford River gurgles to a brief rest in the Norton Reservoir where 530 acres of shallow waters ebb around coves and a small cluster of islands. Amid the bald eagles and ospreys that frequent the reservoir's edges, the instructors of the Norton Kayak Company lead kayaking and fishing expeditions from May 1 to October 31. Whether undertaking everyday tours or hatching special seasonal trips to watch the harvest moon or celebrate holiday weekends, instructors make sure that paddlers of all ages and ability levels stay safe and engaged. They also helm fishing trips for anglers aged 15 and older with valid fishing licenses, floating groups to spots where large-mouth bass, pickerel, and panfish lurk like schools of sunken fishing waders. Since the leaders depend on Mother Nature for their livelihood and letters of recommendation, they enforce a carry-in/carry-out practice that ensures guests leave no litter behind.

In a Nutshell
