Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their craft and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a half-day kayak trip from 2K Adventure Gear in Richmond (an $84 value).

Nestled next to the Illinois and Wisconsin border, 2K Adventure Gear provides water-cruising voyagers with outdoor activity gear, guided adventure tours, and sport-vessel rentals. Glide across the waves of Lake Elizabeth with a half-day kayak rental (a $40 value) guided by a knowledgeable kayakologist with accompaniment of up to 20 fellow kayakers. The four- to five-hour session begins with a basic lesson (a $40 value) covering paddling techniques, the how-tos of turning, safety precautions, and the mechanics of utilizing your craft as a giant kazoo. Once you're ready to cruise the earth's natural cereal bowl, cozy into the 12-foot Old Town kayak as your journey leads you through scenic views of the area's wetlands, fauna, and flora. Though a water bottle (a $4 value) will be provided to quench parched palates, hungry water warriors looking for a more filling chomp can top off the day at The Sand Bar & Island Grill (not included with this Groupon).

2K Adventure Gear

The staff at 2K Adventure Gear lures explorers into its storefront with apparel, equipment, and accessories for warm- and cold-weather excursions, and helps keep like minds together by organizing a variety of fun, rough-and-tumble outdoor events. A selection of kayaks, paddles, and life jackets outfit aquatic travelers; snowshoes give trekkers the surefootedness of a mountain goat and the problem-solving savvy of a lab rat with a degree in public relations. Clients can load up backpacks and venture forth on one of the company’s weekly paddling events, held at sites around the Midwest. Beginners can take advantage of lessons that accommodate no more than 12 students, and more practiced paddlers can take group trips to Wisconsin, central France, or a whale’s dreamscape.
