Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour kayak rental from Drifters Outdoors in Kemptville (a $30 value).
Drifters Outdoors keeps water worshipers gleefully afloat with kayak and canoe rentals along the Rideau River. Before paddlers embark on self-guided two-hour trips, the expert staff can point out distinct local scenery, offer tips on paddling technique, and haggle with local beavers for good lumber prices on the behalf of renters. After suiting up in a brightly coloured life jacket, paddlers begin waterborne expeditions of the stately tree-lined river, one of southern Ontario's major waterways. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal is open to kayakers and canoers all week long, and rentals depart from the Kemptville town docks on weekends. Though not included in this offer, Drifters Outdoors also provides stand-up paddleboard rental, paddle-fitness classes, and a summer camp for kayak-crazed kids age 10–14. Water-bound customers are encouraged to call ahead to check rental availabilities and to gossip about the weather.
