Q:

If this package is purchased, does there have to be 4 people present to use the voucher? Right now we have only 3 people in our party - would the voucher still be valid and at the same price?

Chris B.  asked on  Jun 25, 2012

A:

Hi Chris
Yes, your Groupon would still cost the same amount. Wateriders would be happy to accommodate you with a group of three when you visit if you don't have a fourth person who would like to attend.

Q:

I just wanted to clarify on this, is it 119 for a 3-hour kayak experience for four people? Or is it for just one person that will be kayaking in a group of four people... (will the pass cover 4 friends if they want to kayak together for 119? or will each person in the group of 4 need to buy their own pass for 119?) Thank you!!

Amy K.  asked on  Jun 25, 2012

A:

Four people in any combination of single or double kayaks--

Q:

You describe it as a "leisurely paddle." I wanted to know what distance is normally paddled? Does it depend on the how well the group as a whole paddles? Also, are we allowed to bring water bottles on the kayak?

kelly s.  asked on  Jun 25, 2012

A:

Leisurely means marathon, not sprint, with stops to rest and hear stories, water is encouraged, we are the right distance around 41/2-5 miles roundtrip, most groups traveling cohesively together - there are many kayaking and "how-to" videos online--

Q:

Do you have to provide your own kayak or will one be provided?

Arthur H.  asked on  Jun 25, 2012

Of course we provide all gear--
