Q:

Does this deal include any instruction from staff?

Diana W.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Diana, Our Dock Attendants are very knowledgable about all aspects of recreational boating/paddling, and are happy to help our customers any way they can! Additionally, all of our recreational boats and paddleboards are super user-friendly! To answer your question, the Groupon deal does not include any official instruction, but we generally run through a 2-5 minute crash course that is sufficient for first-time paddlers, or even seasoned paddlers needing a refresher. Just come on down to the dock and let us know what we can do to help! Looking forward to seeing you on the water! Thanks so much!

Q:

Can I use the groupon towards a paddle boat? And are 3 year old allowed on canoes and paddle boats?

Nancy N.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Nancy, Unfortunately, we cannot apply Groupons towards paddleboat rentals--they are only valid for 2-hr SUP, kayak, and canoe rentals. But we have a large and diverse fleet of recreational boats--I have no doubt we'll have a vessel that can accommodate you. All of our canoes and several of our kayaks are built for ultimate stability. That being said, 3-year-olds are definitely allowed on canoes and paddleboats! Safety and fun are our main concerns, and we've got you covered! We're looking forward to seeing you out on the water! Thanks so much!

Q:

What are the time restrictions for this deal. Is it good on weekends? Do we make a reservation? Can I use both groupons at the same time? Also, what are the age requirements? THANKS!!

Jennifer H.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Jennifer, The only official time restriction is for Spring Break (8 Mar - 17 Mar) 2013. You are welcome to exchange your Groupon voucher for a Rowing Dock Groupon Punch Card during this time. However, we cannot redeem Rowing Dock Groupon Punch Cards for rentals during the dates listed above. Additionally, we are a first-come, first-serve concession, and cannot accept reservations. If you are planning on coming over the weekend, we recommend arriving earlier than 12pm. Weekdays we generally have lots of availability. The only age requirements we have apply to Stand-Up Paddleboard, or SUP users. Anyone that is at least 16 years old can use SUPs at their leisure. For 12-15 year old SUP users, we require parental supervision. Children under 12 are not permitted to use SUPs. As for using both Groupons at the same time--you can redeem as many '2-hr paddles' as you'd like. The only stipulations are that each '2-hr paddle' is valid for a singular boat rental, and must be redeemed for its full value. We hope this answers all your questions! We're looking forward to seeing you out on the water! Thanks so much!

Q:

Could I purchase the two two-hour option and use it, for example, to get one paddleboard and one double kayak?

Natalia M.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Natalia, If you purchase the two '2-hr paddle' option ($25), you can definitely redeem it for one paddleboard and one double kayak. The only stipulation is that each '2-hr paddle' must redeemed for its full value. So, the paddleboard would take one of the '2-hr paddles', and the double kayak would take the remaining '2-hr paddle' in a single visit to Rowing Dock. If you purchase the four '2-hr paddle' option, you could come paddling with a friend TWICE! We're excited to see you on the water! Thanks so much!

Q:

Can you rent two kayaks at the same time on one punchcard?

Maureen C.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Maureen, You can definitely redeem a Rowing Dock Groupon Punch Card for two kayaks at the same time. The only stipulation is that each '2-hr paddle' must be redeemed for its full value. If you purchased the two '2-hr paddle' voucher ($25), then you and your paddle partner will redeem both '2-hr paddles' on the punch card in a single visit. If you purchased the four '2-hr paddle' voucher ($45), then you and your paddle partner could redeem two '2-hr paddles' for one visit, and come back another day to paddle again! We're looking forward to seeing you out on the water! Thanks so much!

Q:

Can I use the groupon for 8 one hour rentals of a stand-up paddleboard rather than 4 two hour rentals?

Troye C.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Troye, Each '2-hr paddle' must be redeemed for its full value. Unfortunately, we cannot split up the '2-hr paddles'. Hope to see you on the water soon! Thanks!

Q:

do you have to be over 18?

Ellen A.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Ellen, The only minimum age requirement we have is for Stand-Up Paddleboards. SUP users must be at least 16 years of age to go out on the water without parental supervision. From 12-15 years of age, parental supervision is required. Thanks!

Q:

2418 Stratford does not seem to be near an canoe loading dock; where does one show up to get into the canoes?

anthony b.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Anthony, The following link contains a Google map of our address at 2418 Stratford Dr. Austin, TX 78746. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=2418+Stratford+Drive,+Austin,+TX&hl=en&sll=30.307761,-97.753401&sspn=1.144085,2.38266&oq=2418+stratford+dr,+aus&t=h&hnear=2418+Stratford+Dr,+Austin,+Texas+78746&z=17 We have a parking lot just off of Stratford Dr (continue under Mopac Bridge until you see blue and green bollards), and it takes about 15-20 seconds to walk down to our dock from there. Our Dock Attendants will help you into whichever vessel you choose for your adventure! Thanks!

Q:

Can I split this up into single hour rentals?

Revell M.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Revell, The '2-hr paddles' cannot be split up into single hour rentals. Each '2-hr paddle' can only be redeemed for its full value. Thanks!

Susan R.  from  Merchant  replied on  Sep 21, 2012

Q:

If we only want to go for 1 hour, can we use the Two 2 hour one for Four people for 1 hour? Which one would I purchase? Thanks!

Keele W.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hey there Keele, This is a good question and one we've received frequently. Each '2-hr paddle' is redeemable for ONE person and/or ONE boat. That is to say, each '2-hr paddle' counts as a singular rental. As such, a singular '2-hr paddle' cannot be split between two people with two separate boats, as it would then become two separate rentals. If you'd like to use a Groupon to go paddling with four people, your best bet is to get two double kayaks. This will count as two '2-hr paddles'. We hope this answers your question! Thanks so much!
