Today’s side deal offers customers an enjoyable river trip that doesn’t lead to a fortified military compound in the Cambodian jungle: for $15, you get a short, half-day downriver canoe trip (a $30 value) from the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust in the North Growth Area. Canoes, paddles, life jackets, safety equipment, and dry bags are all provided. Up to two additional Groupons may be purchased as gifts. Participants must be at least 10 years old and reservations are required. This Groupon expires September 24, 2010, and spots on the canoe trip are subject to availability.
Through the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust, seafaring adventurers can partake in a river ramble that avoids run-ins with dangerous gangs of delinquent teenage manatees. Each short, half-day downriver canoe adventure lasts 3.5 hours and spans the river from Owl Hollow to Washington Beach. Canoe pilots will pass through “the tunnel” and experience exhilarating Class 1 rapids before settling down for a leisurely float through calmer stretches. Experienced river guides dole out helpful canoeing instruction throughout the trips, ensuring a safe experience for canoe fans of all skill levels. Additionally, the trip makes for a memorable outing for vacationers, families, and crocodile wrestlers. Cool off and sightsee amid a watery highway with today’s side deal guided by the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust.
San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust
Public land is a vital part of any community. It provides a space for people to explore nature and engage in physical activity. It also protects local wildlife in a habitat that cannot be breached. The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust fills all of these needs along a stretch of the gentle San Joaquin River. At this park, locals can hike along a nature trail and spot native birds or canoe downstream and learn about the issues affecting the water. Summer camps give kids an opportunity to be expressive and inquisitive outside with hands-on activities, crafts, and canoeing. Sycamore Island, similarly, re-creates that camp experience for adults with wildlife trails, fishing excursions, and picnicking under the sycamore and oak trees that aren't already claimed by mischievous fairy-folk.
