What You'll Get
Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and oceans and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a one-hour kayak or paddleboard rental from Watersports at Little Harbor Resort, in Ruskin (up to a $26 value with tax).
With a fleet of wave-worthy Sea-Doos, hydrobikes, paddleboards, and kayaks, Watersports sends oceanic voyagers seafaring in style. Spend one hour perched atop a paddleboard ($25/hour) or ensconced in a kayak ($20/hour), paddling, balancing, and ab flexing against the current. A stand-up paddleboard rental puts riders astride a buoyant board armed with a big, flat-ended stick and unleashes them to propel themselves over the undulating whitecaps. Kayaks are available in single or double configurations, perfect for couples or one old man alone with the sea. During the one-hour rental, paddlers can choose to navigate the scenic shorelines of Tampa Bay and Little Manatee River, which is home to manatees, dolphins, stingrays, and Manny Ramirez.

About Watersports at Little Harbor
Cypress trees sway in the breeze, lush tropical vegetation soaks up the sunshine, and white sandy beaches glisten nearby as Watersports at Little Harbor's rental jet skis, paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, and pontoons tote adventurers across the waters of Tampa Bay. The Key West–style resort allows families and friends to glimpse local wildlife as they skim scenic shorelines and chase picturesque settings at an aquatic reservoir as vast and secluded as Bigfoot's bathtub. The resort's alighted tiki torches and palm trees that border its tiki bar and pavilion attract groups for company picnics or private events such as weddings and parties, during which revelers can partake in watersports, dance to reggae, or watch a fire-dancing show.
