Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a morning or half-day kayak rental from Bayou Kayaks (a $20 value). The early-bird trip starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 9 a.m., and the half-day rental runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bayou Kayaks' fleet of 15 sleek, open-topped kayaks transports paddle buffs through the placid shores of Bayou St. John. After receiving safety equipment and a short tutorial, kayakers will be able to whish and whir through the scenic waterways, passing railroad bridges, waterside meadows, and urban wildlife. The modern open-topped vessels allow sailors to store their drinks in cup holders, dangle their legs in the water, and bring along animal companions—including dogs and well-behaved antelope—for the ride. Use this boating experience as an exercise opportunity or as a way to relax and master the art of kayak levitation.
