Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a canoe in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $22, three adults (or two adults and two children) get a 16-mile (or less if you choose) self-guided canoe tour of the Whitewater River from Morgan's Outdoor Adventures (a $45 value). This deal is only valid for the Brookville, Indiana location.
Morgan's Outdoor Adventures equips immobile canoes with the human propulsion needed to drift down spirited streams. Once paddlers saddle into an Old Town polypropylene canoe, they'll be free to float the foam down the Whitewater River, a Class I stream considered to be Indiana's fastest-flowing river. Canoe captains can choose to ride as far as 16 miles—gliding past the historic Indian burial grounds and other scenic agriculture and floral life along the way. Hungry sea-slappers can choose to stop at various points, such as Morgan's Lodge (about halfway through the trip), for a leisurely picnic unsullied by preternaturally intelligent bears in neckties. Feel free to boat as slow as the flow or as quick as your arm-propellers can take you, so long as you aren't pulled over by a kayak police cruiser.
Those looking to make a weekend out of the trip can use Morgan's campsites and riverside cabins, for an additional fee, to avoid the hassles of using the river as a waterbed. With nearby attractions such as Kent's Harbor Marina, the historic canal town of Metamora, and the world's most average-sized ball of twine, visitors to the Whitewater River can partake in plenty of activities along with their canoeing cruise with today's Groupon to Morgan's Canoe Rental.
- I always feel very safe going out on the scenic river. Seeing that Morgan's has now been in business for almost 40 years is always assuring, and they closely monitor river conditions and have more than enough life jackets too. – Jordan C., Yelp
Morgan’s Canoe & Outdoor Center
For three generations, the Morgan family has equipped adventurers with the accouterments they need to conquer the great outdoors. The outfitters supply canoes, kayaks, and rafts for excursions at both their Fort Ancient location on the Little Miami River and Brookville location on the Whitewater River. Adventurers choose from a range of downstream floats, with river jaunts stretching from 3 miles up to 18 miles. The company also operates campgrounds with cabins and tent space on the banks of both rivers, allowing guests to stop overnight to rest their muscles or practice non-native birdcalls while everyone else sleeps.
