Slow-moving rivers are ideal locales for swimming leisurely, catching fish, paddling amongst wildlife, and bow-hunting reflections. Enjoy a peaceful paddle with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a half-day stand-up paddleboard rental from Rutabaga in Monona (a $25 value).
Rutabaga's skilled staff has been outfitting paddlers with gear and showing aqua explorers where on the Yahara River to trek for four decades. Float along for four hours on a stand-up paddleboard from Surftech or NRS, departing for a half-day trip from the Rutabaga dock, located on the Yahara River between Squaw Bay and Upper Mud Lake. Resembling long, thick surfboards, stand-up paddleboards are great for Madison’s lakes and slow-moving, nonclassified rivers, where fish carelessly drift, birds lazily soar, and yetis easily eat the slow-moving fish and birds. Both life jacket and paddle are provided with each board rental, ensuring safety and the ability to move forward. Renters must be at least 18 years old and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
