Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon for a buoyant river ride from Riverview Ranch in Bourbon. Though life jackets are provided, groups will need to bring appropriate flotation equipment for children under 10 years of age. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get a 5- or 10-mile canoe trip for two riders (up to a $40 value).
- For $40, you get a 5- or 10-mile canoe trip for four riders in two canoes (up to an $80 value).
Riverview Ranch's rolling-river canoe trips bestow riders with up-close, inspiring geological and wildlife views garnered from self-steered canoes. Glide down Missouri's Meramec River, an H2O highway traversing a plethora of gasp-inspiring areas, including steep cliffs, thick green foliage, and rustic rental cabins crafted by enterprising beavers. After choosing a 5- or 10-mile flat-water excursion, water wanderers ride to the appropriate take-off zone inside a Riverview Ranch shuttle. All rowing journeys begin upstream to add the river's natural conveyance powers to each canoe's human-powered propulsion, allowing riders to relax along the river or pour on extra speed to escape boat-tipping manatees.
Riverview Ranch's rates fluctuate throughout the week.
With a strong belief in life’s simpler pleasures, the staff of Riverview Ranch oversees a host of watersports, campsites, and cabins along the picturesque shores of the lazy Meramec River. Shuttled upstream, visitors push off in canoes, rafts, or kayaks to enjoy the easy-moving currents of the stream before arriving back at vehicles or campsites to do celebratory touchdown dances and life-vest spikes.
