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 $60, you get a three-hour guided kayak or canoe trip for two on Lake Murray from Get Your Gear On (a $120 value).
The passionate oar wielders at Get Your Gear On introduce nature-starved duos to stunning marine wildlife and outstanding swimming opportunities with a three-hour Lake Murray day trip. Surprise a flipperless friend with the amphibious intrigue of a beginner-friendly excursion, launching from the store on weekdays at 11:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. A certified tour guide escorts packs of paddlers on a languid, shoreline-hugging adventure, during which they'll absorb the sights and sounds of the local aquatic habitat, including osprey, heron, and snorkeling pandas. Tours provide seaworthy boats, lifejackets, and paddles, though swimwear and seasonal attire such as beauty pageant sashes and denim spats are guests’ responsibility. Each trip can accommodate 6–12 people; make sure to call ahead to reserve your preferred time slot.
Get Your Gear On
With a passion for the great outdoors, the outfitters at Get Your Gear On provide equipment and instruction for navigating trails and waterways. While leading groups, expert guides glide through scenic locales in search of wildlife views and serene experiences. Their canoe trips drift along the warm urban areas and tree-littered landscapes that run along the Congaree River, and their stand-up-paddleboard rentals allow guests to view the banks of Lake Murray from a perspective previously exclusive to sightseeing mermen. They also offer cycling equipment and maintenance along with hiking gear for dry climates, snowy landscapes, and rooms where the sink has been left on all night.
