Throughout history, humans have relied on myriad modes of water transportation, including woven bamboo rafts, pool noodles, and orca-drawn buggies. Enjoy humanity's conquest of waterways with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a kayak excursion including single kayak rental and with shuttle service from Saco Canoe Rental Company in Conway, New Hampshire (up to a $33 value). This Groupon is not valid on Saturdays in July and August.
Saco Canoe Rental Company touts a fleet of Wilderness Systems touring kayaks, sending bearers of dual-bladed paddles down the scenic Saco River in peaceful excursions, After choosing between the 5-mile “1st Bridge to Landing” and 7.8-mile “Beach to Landing” trips, excursionists will meander past sandy beaches, float by White Mountain woodlands, or ease up to a yeti swim-up bar before paddling back at the car lot. With an average depth of three feet, the Saco River's leisurely waters nurture beginners of most ages. While cruising downriver, dip an oar into the Saco River's crisp waters, picnic on one of the plentiful sandbars, or scamper up a shoreline rope swing to practice Tarzan hollers or Churchill speeches.
The shuttle service transports paddlers to their chosen river run's starting point, allowing kayakers to cruise back to the parking lot and the rental area at their own pace. For each trip, which ranges from two to five hours long, Saco Canoe Rental Company provides life vests and otter repellent.
