Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their craft and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today's Groupon to Cimarron River Company, located in Scottsdale. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get a kayaking trip for two people (a $200 value).
- For $199, you get a kayaking trip for four people (a $400 value).
Cimarron River Company wafts exhilarated kayakers down the stunning Verde River, through the sun-soaked, dazzling desert vistas of the Tonto National Forest. Adventurous paddlers rendezvous with their guide near Scottsdale, where they’ll receive their kayaks, life jackets, and beverages for the trip. Cimarron's sit-on-top kayaks allow fledgling floaters to navigate the pristine pools of the magnificent river, far from the debauched inner-tubers and meddling maritime lawyers of more populous waterways. The scenery's splendor is marked by crimson desert canyons, picturesque swaths of greenery, and a variety of wildlife frolicking in the shaped shadows of breathtaking saguaro cacti.
The approximately 90-minute tour boasts small, personal groups, which offer maximum interaction with guides and plenty of time to sell sunglasses to local frogs. The two-person Groupon is valid only on Saturdays and Wednesdays, and all kayakers must be at least 12 years of age and must sign a waiver.
