Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water-road ride with this Groupon.
$24 for One-Hour Jet-Boat Thrill Tour ($49 Value)
During the one-hour thrill ride and adventure tour, passengers file into Pure Naples' modern jet boat to explore the northern Ten Thousand Islands at speeds of more than 30 knots. As the boat flies through waterways, a narrator relates facts about the local ecosystem, mangrove forest, and wildlife such as dolphins and birds. Passengers even experience what it feels like to "spin out" in a boat with Pure Naples' signature 360-degree Kiwi Turn, named for the temperature of the boat. Call for tour departure times.
The father-and-son duo, Captains Lance and Harry Julian, founded Pure Naples in 2009 to introduce landlubbers to the pristine waterways that surround Naples. No strangers to the waters, the Julians draw on five generations of maritime business and 25 years of maritime tourism experience to make their tours as fun and informative as possible. Together they introduce tourists to picturesque views of dolphins, bald eagles, and nature’s cutest cow, the manatee, with cruises, or facilitate individual exploring with Jet Ski and boat rentals. They even take their boats out on regular deep-sea or bay fishing trips, or private charters for the serious angler.
