Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Celebrate mankind's amusing advancements with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a one-hour canoe, kayak, or hydro-bike rental at Sacramento State Aquatic Center (up to a $14 value).
Since 1981, Sacramento State Aquatic Center has rented fun and educational water vessels to local aquaphiles looking to skitter along the surface of Lake Natoma. Choose from several options for your hour of water-top fun: enjoy the natural landscape at a leisurely pace by cruising out onto the lake in a person-powered canoe, or opt for a tandem or cabo kayak rental for a slightly more X-treme canoe-like experience. If a missed morning spinning class has your legs feeling underworked and lazy, launch onto the lake in a hydro bike and ride over the waves on the pedal-powered pond skimmer.
California State University, Sacramento founded the Sacramento State Aquatic Center as a venue for students to explore water sports and safety in a controlled environment. As such, it places a heavy emphasis on safe water-sports techniques and defense mechanisms against deep water and life-preserver-wrapped dachshunds. So take this opportunity to reconnect with the water, or gift this Groupon to an out-of-shape lake-lover looking for a good time.
