The best part of kayaking is the exhilaration of exploration, up until you realize the difficulty of paddling through pudding in your bathtub and must face yourself in the mirror. Take to real waters with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two hours of water-sports-equipment rental from Adventure Water Sports (up to a $40 value), located on-site at the Dana Hotel. Customers can use this Groupon for one two-hour rental or two one-hour rentals.
Adventure Water Sports' expert fun facilitators outfit customers with on- and off-water conveyances they can use to enjoy the surrounding area attractions. Patrons can leap atop a tri-wheeled pedal boat or paddleboard and explore the waters around the scenic Mission Bay, the largest human-constructed aquatic park brought to life through clever engineering and innumerable twisty ties. For Dana Location expeditions, a single-seat kayak ushers paddlers across no-wake waters with heightened stability and maneuverability. Land enthusiasts can partake in drier activities and avoid dolphin-emplaced mackerel tolls with a casual beach-cruiser bicycle trip through sprawling shorelines.
Adventure Water Sports, LLC
From two outposts on the shores of Mission Bay, Adventure Water Sports, LLC launches vessels and seafaring classes to introduce customers to the joy of cutting through veils of spray and sunshine. Both launching points are near the bay's full-speed zone, so captains hoping to tote skiers behind powerboats or do donuts on a scuba diver’s lawn in waverunners don't waste valuable time idling through the no-wake zone. Kayaks, pedal boats, and paddleboards cut across the steel-blue mirror of the no-wake zone, an ideal stretch for learning and exploring.
Instructors from Adventure Water Sports impart nautical wisdom to youngsters in summer youth classes that focus on anything from waterskiing and wakeboarding to riding aqua cycles. The waterfront retailers also rent out single and tandem terrestrial bicycles for those looking to cruise the Mission Beach boardwalk or simply explain the motorcycle noises they are making with their mouths.
