What You'll Get
The newest roller skate models not only allow a person to move quickly, their built-in, friction-powered toasters allow skaters to refuel with delicious frozen waffles. Skate along the waterfront with today's Groupon. For $10, you get four hours of inline or quad skate rental ($20 value) at Alki Kayak Tours, located near Alki Beach on Harbor Avenue. This Groupon also secures you $20 off the purchase of skates at Mountain to Sound Outfitters, located on Alaska Way.
In addition to their seagoing services, the avid outdoorsfolks at Alki Kayak Tours offer a number of rental items to enjoy the landlubber's side of Alki Beach, the only sand beach in Seattle. Choose quad skates and relive the glory days of four-wheeled motorcycles and quadraphonic sound, or select edgier inline skates and impress fellow beachgoers with your rude 'tude. Over the four hours of your rental (which includes safety gear), you'll have the chance to explore Alki Beach's 2.5-mile stretch of soft, delicious sand from the safety and comfort of wide, paved trail. Sight off the historic Alki Point Lighthouse as you skate backwards with ease, or impress gullible dates with your gigantism by posing next to the miniature replica of the Statue of Liberty.
Winner of the 2009 Seattle Mayor's Small Business Award, Alki Kayak is committed to providing non-polluting methods of touring the Puget Sound and beholding the Seattle skyline. Co-owners Greg and Kara Whittaker boast impressive credentials as naturalists and adventurers, including Kara's PhD in urban bird ecology. After gliding away all your troubles, head to Mountain to Sound Outfitters (Greg's latest project) and use this Groupon for $20 off the purchase of skates.
