Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a canoe in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon for a canoe rental from Black Creek Canoe Rental in Brooklyn. Choose between two options:
For $12, you get a weekday canoe rental (a $32 value).
For $16, you get a weekend canoe rental (a $32 value).
Black Creek Canoe Rental ferries paddlers along the beautiful twists and turns of the Black Creek as it winds its way through the scenic DeSoto National Forest. Today's deal is good for a trip from Big Creek to Brooklyn or from Brooklyn to Moody's Landing, each of which is canoeable in three to three-and-a-half hours and passes by a bevy of swimming holes and a sandbar over the course of a five-mile journey. The unspoiled natural scenery of Black Creek is populated with a cornucopia of wildlife, including deer, turkey, and great blue herons. Boaters are furnished with life preservers and each canoe holds two or three passengers (third person subject to extra charge), ensuring that barbershop quartets only need to make their tenors swim alongside the watercraft.
Alcohol and food is permitted on the river, allowing boaters to assemble a picnic feast as buoyant as a duck that ingested helium. Black Creek Canoe Rental provides a shuttle service to transport canoes and their helmsmen to and from the start and finish of each route. Click here to see the shuttle schedule.
