It was a great experience. The person ( owner) was very helpful and informative on the phone, when we got there we filled out a little paperwork and next thing we knew we were afloat and spent the next two hours or so floating and paddling down a beautiful river! The people helping us in and out of our kayaks were very polite and courteous. It was a wonderful day!

Best experience for my first time canoeing! The instructions were given fast,but once we caught on, it was smooth sailing!!

Canoe Outpost was a lot of fun. Friendly host and the scenery was beautiful. We rented 2 sit-in kayaks, saw lots of turtles and 2 alligators. I would highly recommend this trip to others.

What You'll Get


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 rental for a trip down Little Manatee River (a $30 value)
  • $20 for a double-kayak or canoe rental for a trip down Little Manatee River (a $39 value)

This Groupon is valid for Trip 1, which includes all gear, access to a 5.5-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. Those looking to extend their trip can explore one of two Manatee Loops, which can add up to two hours of paddle time.

About 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.
