What You'll Get


Herbert Hoover won Americans’ hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Basics of Kayaking class (up to a $50 value) or a kayak nature tour (up to a $40 value) from BayCreek Paddling Center. This Groupon is valid for one year but must be redeemed during kayak season, which lasts from June 1 to September 30.

For more than 15 years, the cordial paddlemongers at BayCreek Paddling Center have spread the gospel of kayak. Sharpen your strokes during the two-hour Basics of Kayaking course, in which a friendly staff member will run through the basic equipment and conditions, such as comfortably fitting into and boarding a kayak, proper safety precautions, how to grip a manual propeller, and effective paddle strokes. If you're looking to get more in tune with your environment, the kayak nature tour puts the gorgeous and historic Irondequoit Creek wetlands on full display. After some basic safety pointers and paddle techniques, kayakers navigate the Dansville River, learning about its glacial beginnings and formation, former Seneca Indian inhabitants, and the misguided cubist period. Meanwhile, the river’s neighborhood natural denizens, including geese, muskrat, beaver, deer, trout, great blue heron, and Ted Danson, can be spotted on the banks foraging, frolicking, and eating one another.

Kayak nature tours take place Saturdays at 9:30 a.m., and basics classes take place Mondays at 3 p.m., Tuesdays at 6 p.m., Thursdays at 3 p.m., Fridays at 6 p.m., Saturdays at 10 a.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. You must call ahead to reserve a spot on the water.

Though BayCreek Paddling Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
