Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with today's Groupon: for $50, you get an all-day kayak rental for two people from The Paddler's Shop at Rivendell Marine in Monument Beach (a $100 value). Since kayaks seat one person each, today's deal includes one kayak each for both you and a friend.
With half of Cape Cod at its oar tips, The Paddler's Shop is a prime launching point for kayakers to safely explore the region in a 10-foot recreational kayak. Oar-wielding duos can cast off outfitted with top-quality life jackets and paddles in search of adventure or discarded tapes of Creed's basement sessions. The bicep-pumping voyage sets novice sea-strokers out in the sheltered waters of Toby's Island or traversing the autumnal beauty of the salt marshes. More advanced aquanauts can take on the waves of the open sea at Wings Cove or Mashnee Island, investigating the wiles of the Cape Cod Canal in its entirety or circumnavigating shores to avoid troupes of jealous bicycles.
This Groupon is good for 10-foot recreational kayaks only.

Steps from Phinney Harbor, visitors to The Paddler's Shop at Rivendell Marine can walk out with their lightweight boards and head straight for the shore. The folks at The Paddler's Shop outfit explorers and shoppers with rentals and purchasable equipment for aquatic recreation, including sturdy, lightweight fiberglass and kevlar kayaks and paddles. They also supply stand-up paddleboards, which are an ideal way for beginners to navigate nearby waterways, since they're lightweight and easy to balance atop.
