What You'll Get
Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a canoe or kayak rental plus a T-shirt (up to a $32 value) at Broad River Outpost in Danielsville. Broad River Outpost opens for the season on March 19.
Broad River Outpost has been facilitating the flotation of river wranglers with a bevy of equipment and advice for more than a quarter century. Take to the paddles from mid-March through October to traverse three sections of the Broad River, each catering to a different skill level, topography preference, and sneaker size. Sit-in, Keowee kayaks provide vehicular solitude for scenic trips of 5 or 10 miles, lasting between two and six hours. Traditional tandem canoes buoy romantic afternoon aqua-jaunts, which include sights such as bluffs, hardwood forests, and wildflowers. Daring scullers of all skill levels can perch on sit-on-top kayaks to confront the 6.5-mile, 3–4 hour course known as The Broad, where Class II rapids reign. Navigate down or around a 5-foot waterfall, letting nostalgia's splashes take you back to wedding showers and graduation-day face washings.
Consciences succumb to warm, fuzzy feelings as an eco-friendly bus, running on 100% recycled vegetable oil, shuttles expended paddlers back from map edges to their terrestrial vehicles. The Broad River Outpost also offers renters RV-free camping grounds and hot showers at no additional cost, though a $1 donation to the Broad River Watershed Association is encouraged to appease powerful multi-fish syndicates.
- The driver at the front is courteous to answer all questions one may have, and you are quickly escorted on a nice little drive up the river in a little bus with your canoe – Jessi B., Yelp, 10/15/10
- I've only had the best of experiences with the staff and the equipment is always in good shape – Chris, Google Maps
