Potomac Paddlesports - North Bethesda: $62 for a White-Water Rafting Trip from Potomac Paddlesports ($125 Value)

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 $62, you get a white-water rafting trip through Mather Gorge from Potomac Paddlesports (a $125 value).

The professional raft guides at Potomac Paddlesports lead boatloads of paddle-happy people through the rushing rapids and calm flats found in the area's nearby rivers. During the four-hour Mather Gorge white-water rafting trip, floaters will journey through the towering cliffs and lush greenery surrounding the Potomac River just below Great Falls Park. While Mather Gorge's Class II and III rapids offer rafters of all skill levels a euphoric adrenaline rush, the flat sections of the river encourage laying back, relaxing, or practicing water-walking abilities. As the guides go into detail about the rich natural and historic significance of the area, paddlers can optically devour nature's visual treats while scarfing down their lunch, which is included in this trip. Potomac Paddlesports will provide all necessary equipment, but they recommend participants dress for a possible swim and bring a waterproof camera to capture moments of grand exploration and not-so-grand pianos. In order to reduce the impact on the fragile ecosystem, the Mather Gorge trip runs only on select days from May to September.

Potomac Paddlesports

At Potomac Paddlesports, the first professional paddlesports school to be endorsed by the American Canoe Association, the team of American Canoe Association– and British Canoe Union–certified instructors patiently lead students through a methodical progression of flat-water paddling skills. The classes cover a variety of watersports, including whitewater rafting, river and sea kayaking, and standup paddling. The small-group classes are designed to keep students engaged, and longer trips down the Potomac challenge their skills with powerful rapids surrounded by lush scenery, interspersed with rare glimpses of bears putting on their bear suits. Outside of class, students can bond with fellow paddlers during weekly sushi meals and occasional movie nights. Further demonstrating their dedication to bodies of water, Potomac Paddlesports works to preserve the nation’s rivers, estuaries, and oceans, sharing this passion with its members through advocacy and donations to conservation programs.
