The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry. Venture into watery environs with today's Groupon to South Coast Watersports in Port Dover. Choose between the following options:
- For $55, you get a 90-minute stand-up paddleboard lesson (a $120 value).
- For $90, you get a 2.5-hour stand-up paddleboard tour (a $200 value).
Just steps from the beach, South Coast Watersports equips the aqua curious with stand-up paddleboards for one-on-one instruction or shoreline tours of Lake Erie. During the 90-minute paddleboard lesson, students step atop surfboard-sized paddleboards and manoeuvre them telekinetically or by using a body-length paddle. A sport that can be done by almost anyone, paddleboarding lets the landlocked experience a full-body workout while peacefully skimming the shoreline or venturing out into rowdier waves. Instructors stay by students' sides during the entire lesson, and students can buy a second lesson as a gift to work out with a friend or thank the barista who perfected the bacon latte.
Paddleboarders herd on the beach before venturing out into the watery arms of Lake Erie on the 2.5-hour tour. While paddle pushers shake hands with passing ducks, they can sneak views of seaside homes, a yacht club, and waterfalls on the way to Black Creek.
