What You'll Get
Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $28, you get a three-hour rafting or kayaking excursion down the Spokane River from FLOW Adventures (a $56 value), located on Euclid Avenue less than a mile from downtown. This Groupon must be redeemed by October 31.
FLOW Adventures offers exciting excursions down the Spokane River for kayaking and rafting enthusiasts of all skill levels. During the half-day trip ($56, including tax and $2 river fee), paddlers will be provided with scenic views of rocky gorges and stable woods while also avoiding the amorous advances of ospreys and eagles. The three-hour journey begins with guests arriving at the put-in point via the FLOW Adventures bus, followed by a pre-rafting briefing from one of FLOW's friendly guides on what to expect during the ride. Guests then take to inflatable kayaks and rafts to embark on the excursion, braving the class II or III rapids caused by the river’s unbridled rabidity. Water toys are provided during the trip, allowing guests to vent their frustrations by dramatically squirting fellow passengers in slow motion, à la John Woo's unfilmed treatment for Waterworld.
FLOW Adventures provides all the necessary equipment for the tour, including life vests and helmets. Enjoy a journey free of the highway's traffic jams, mayhem-wreaking minivans, and tire-biting traffic cones with an aquatic amble from FLOW Adventures.

About Flow Adventures
Flow Adventures’ intrepid explorers introduce adventurers of all ages and skill levels to the thrill of navigating Washington's backcountry. Tours take place on the Spokane River, with idle inner tubing on the TJ Meenach stretch and whitewater rafting on the lower Riverside State Park section. Before groups set out, staff conducts briefings to ensure safe expeditions. Though they stress safety, they still take a lighthearted approach to trips.
