Lake Lure Adventure Company's staff organizes safe and fun ventures across the scenic waves of a manmade lake cupped by the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A kayak or standup-paddleboard rental perches mariners in or on manpowered vessels, and a pontoon rental places the renter’s hands at the steering wheel and supports an entire throng of nautical navigators. Groups of up to 10 can bring a camera, bathing suits, and a cooler for their three-hour pontoon jaunt, powered by fuel not covered with this Groupon. Parties of up to eight can opt for adventurous acceleration with a two-hour rental of an activity-enabling speedboat. Fuel, driver, and skiing equipment accompany rental of the 2009 MasterCraft ProStar197, from whose stern boaters can learn or practice skiing with the driver’s coaching or convince swimming bass to give the skis a try. Alternatively, the 2011 MasterCraft X-2 skims over the lake’s surface with wakeboarders in tow.

About Lake Lure Adventure Company
The turquoise mountains rising out of Lake Lure's waters may have made it onto films such as Dirty Dancing because of their scenic beauty, but they also serve a practical function. “The mountains block out the wind, so you can always find good water,” Lake Lure Adventure Company president Genevieve Helms told Waterski Magazine. With the help of the water-sports rental company, visitors can take advantage of the lake's amiable conditions that are perfect for activities such as kayaking and paddleboarding. Passengers who choose to take guided fishing trips use baited lines to capture mountain trout and bluegill, whose populations are replenished yearly. Instructors certified by USA Water Ski lead waterskiing and wakeboarding expeditions aboard MasterCraft ski boats, and pontoon rentals let visitors take the wheel and pilot one of Lake Lure Adventure Company's roomy boats for a day of leisure.
