Florida's rivers are the natural habitat for many aquatic animals including fish, manatees, and the 2008 US Olympic swim team. Paddle through the home of champions with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $15 for a single-kayak trip down Little Manatee River (a $30 value)
  • $18 for a double-kayak or canoe trip down Little Manatee River (a $37 value)

Trips include all gear, access to a 5-mile stretch of Little Manatee River, and return transportation. A straight trip down the river takes approximately two hours, but paddlers are free to stop to enjoy picnics, activities, and state-park facilities. Activities include soaring through the sky on a rope swing, searching the water for manatees, or dipping into the cool river for a swim.

Though Canoe Outpost sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Canoe Outpost

Away from the amusement parks and tourist hotspots Florida is known for, its rivers wind along sandy beaches, wildlife habitats, and lush marshlands. Canoe Outpost's cabin rentals and fleet of kayaks and canoes allow access to these natural attractions, thanks to their steadfast crew which helps paddlers launch into the Little Manatee River. Opportunities to paddle, hike, and arm-wrestle fish pepper the rivers, whose calmer areas allow for cool, refreshing swims.
