Valentine’s Day with ACK

The Gifts

Gift Ideas for Your Outdoor Lover

Imagine this scenario if you will: it’s Valentine’s Day, you planned to surprise your lover at work with chocolates and flowers all in the spirit of the day. You’ll proceed to tell her that you’ve made dinner reservations for The Melting Pot way in advance (impressive move) and she’ll be excited, but not quite as excited as she would be if this next scenario unfolded.

Here we are again on Valentine’s Day, you’ve made some online purchases for your sweetheart that you are rather proud of. You get past the receptionist, up the elevator, and finally it’s just you, your lover, and the Malibu Tandem Kayak, sunset color (with accessories included). She’s stunned, she’s beaming, and she’s forgotten all about dinner. Continue reading Valentine’s Day with ACK

Paddle Tandem For Valentine’s Day!

Paddle tandem this Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and if you’re ready to change things up and try something a little different, look no further than kayaking. Outdoor adventure is a great way to be engaging with your loved one (and even the whole family) and visiting a secluded, unique destination by kayak can be quite romantic. This Valentine’s Day, it’s time to paddle tandem!

Start by picking out a unique spot. Pick one out that’s got some good sights and/or wildlife, or, if you’re planning a moonlight paddle, one that’s free of tree branches that could block your view of the sky. Of course, any spot will do because you two will have plenty of fun once you get paddling. If you’re having trouble finding a good place to paddle, remember to give our ACK Launch Points App a look.

Go a step further and pick out a stopping point along the way to take a picnic break. Layout a blanket to sit on and bring along a small dry bag complete with wine, cheese, crackers and chocolate.  Your paddling partner will certainly be surprised! You could even bring along some nice mood music if you were so inclined.

Remember, Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, so get your plans together soon. If you’ve got a paddling date planned, or have had one in the past, let us know by leaving a comment below!
