Renting a boat gives you a chance to drive a boat, which, in turn, lets you feel a small piece of what it's like to be a boat. Test-drive a new lifestyle with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $14 for a two-hour kayak or paddleboard rental (a $29 value)
- $89 for a three-hour pontoon-boat rental for up to seven people (a $240 value)
During two-hour kayak or paddleboard rentals, guests explore Lake Lure's scenic beauty while simultaneously honing sporting skills. No onsite training is required for kayak or paddleboard rentals, but those who rent a pontoon first read over a short instructional manual and memorize a map detailing the exact location of the lake's bathtub plug. During the rental, guests can fish for mountain trout, take in the mountain lake's scenery, or swim, and each boat comes outfitted with a cooler and flotation devices. Multiple Groupons can be used back-to-back to create a longer rental day.
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.
