What You'll Get
Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $21, you get the Rusty Oar canoe or kayak trip (up to a $44.94 value, including tax) from White River Canoe Company in Noblesville. If you choose to make your voyage via canoe, you may fit up to two additional guests in the vessel (provided the three passengers' combined weight does not exceed 450 lbs); kayaks are available in one-seaters and tandem vessels.
White River Canoe Company provides outdoor entertainment for river people in the form of canoes, kayaks, and river tubes. Unlike the baby-doll clients and child CEOs of imaginary boat companies, this water-tight canoe company's customers do not need inflatable limbs to enjoy a canoe or kayak trip on the serene White River. Today’s deal is good for the popular Rusty Oar adventure, a two- to three-hour excursion that launches off at the Rusty Oar drop-in. Starting at the company’s main River Road facility, paddlers will be transported via passenger van to the drop-in point (about a 10–15 minute trip), schooled in safe river navigation, and equipped with all the necessary paddling gear. Then, selecting either a kayak ($34 plus tax) or a canoe ($42 plus tax), boaters shove off melodramatically to paddle and float down the watery way that will return them once again to River Road, where parked cars and bejeweled trolls await their owners on gravelly lots.
As boaters float merrily upon a stream of consciousness-lulling liquid, beautiful scenery passes by on both sides and various wildlife make scheduled appearances. The Rusty Oar trip departs every half hour from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; all boat rentals must be returned by 6 p.m. Check out the river map to get an idea of the adventure that faces you, and call to schedule your appointment.
