The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Oct 15, 2010. Amount paid never expires. Must be at least 18. No cash value. Not valid with other offers. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an adult, five-hour kayak-rental package from Outdoor Recreation (a $75 value). Boats, life jackets, paddles, cushions, and basic safety instructions are included in the package. This Groupon is valid for redemption at all five Outdoor Recreation locations. Groupon purchasers can also apply the value of this deal toward an upgrade to a more-expensive watercraft (canoe or pedalboat) and pay the difference.

Outdoor Recreation's five-hour rental package arms adventurers with a kayaking boat and all necessary gear for venturing out into the eco-expanse, then gives them five hours to self-propel their way down a highway of water and solitude. As you exercise the limbs vital for cereal consumption, you'll get to take in the Massachusetts landscape, coo and caw at passing birds overhead until one of them flips you the human, or simply let yourself be carried away with the current as you compose haikus in your head about the way the pond shimmers like a giant Lite-Brite as the warm summer sun sets behind the pine trees.

Outdoor Recreation's activities aren't just a thrilling way to get in touch with nature; they're also an exciting way to get some exercise after a long winter spent soaking in a bathtub of hot soup. There's no limit to how many Groupons you can buy, so you can finally make good on your childhood promise to spend more time on water than on land for an entire summer without the hassle of getting press-ganged by pirates. Check Outdoor Recreation's schedule for available dates and hours.

Must be 18 or older to use this Groupon.

Boating in Boston

Boating in Boston drops oars in six locations—including local lakes, ponds, the Charles River, and Boston Harbor—sending visitors on watery adventures with a fleet of canoes, kayaks, sailboats, pedal boats, paddleboards, and festive and essential lifejackets. Whether navigating the peaceful waters of Hopkinton State Park's Hopkinton Reservoir—the place that, in 2002, started it all—or campus-adjacent eddies of UMass Boston's Fox Point Landing, visitors can hit the water untrained or sharpen skills with solo or group lessons. The crew of instructors also instills a love of boating in the littlest landlubbers with youth summer camps that teach basic skills and safety.

Customer Reviews

I brought it for one hour, but it turned out they up the price of rental, so the coupon is only worth the value of $20, then I have to pay extra to cover the extra $2 and tax on top - so don't think you can walk out without paying more.
