Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their crafts and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with today's Groupon to The WaterFront Center in Oyster Bay. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a one-hour kayak rental for two (two single kayaks, a $30 value).
- For $35, you get a one-hour Thursday evening kayak sunset paddle for two (two single kayaks, a $70 value).
A non-profit dedicated to the promotion and protection of Long Island's scenic Oyster Bay, The WaterFront Center facilitates safe and sustainable aquatic adventures through rentals of recreational watercraft. Kayak rentals require no prior experience or fluency in the language of seabirds, opening up the opportunity for paddle-powered fun to children as young as 5 (with adult accompaniment). Grab a paddle-wielding pal and take to the back of an obliging kayak to discover how fresh the ocean air can smell, how much fun exercise can be, and how many sea shanties you can turn into a cappella power ballads.
Prospective floaters can heighten the ocular appeal of their wavesperience by opting for a sunset paddle, offered Thursday evenings starting at 7 p.m. Memorial Day–Labor Day. A guided tour of the waterscape during the beautiful gloaming hours, a sunset paddle gives kayakers the chance to enjoy the company of an experienced instructor as they glide across the glassy bay, take in the breeze, and watch the sun as it careens out of control and crashes into the horizon.
The WaterFront Center
The future of Oyster Bay is in good hands with The WaterFront Center, a nonprofit U.S. Sailing–accredited facility that teaches both youths and adults to conserve their local environment. In addition to demonstrating the importance of environmental responsibility, the center also instills sailing skills in people of all ages, from their Lil’ Luffers class for third and fourth graders to US Sailing certification for those ready to take the boat out on their own. For corporate groups, they teach a different kind of lesson out on the water with outings designed to teach team development or effective communication. The WaterFront Center also rents sailboats and kayaks to veteran boaters or trustworthy gusts of wind.
