You can row a boat in Central Park -- if you're looking to quickly become star-bored. For a real on-the-water experience in the big city, look toward the Hudson -- and this sweet half-off deal from Manhattan Kayak Company. Pay $87 for a comprehensive introduction to kayaking class and a one-hour tour on the river (a $175 value). Experienced instructors will teach you the basic strokes, familiarize you with the equipment, and most importantly, show you how to get in and out of your vessel. Afterwards, get a half-off drink ticket for up to two drinks at the Frying Pan and toast to conquering the water. Or, pay $45 (regularly $90) for a 90-minute stand-up paddle board lesson and river tour. You'll learn how to propel the board on land, and then take to the water to practice your skills (and if you're feeling ambitious, explore). Have a hull of a good time at a price that will keep your demeanor buoyant.
