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.

Up to 143 passengers board the two-tiered Desert Belle boat and glide past towering canyons and desert vistas during a 90-minute cruise across Saguaro Lake. From an air-conditioned lower deck or covered upper deck, riders may nab sights of animals, such as mountain lions, bighorn sheep, and coyotes. See the tour schedule here.

Desert Belle

Bighorn sheep and mountain lions dart between the shadows of craggy lava cliffs as bald eagles swoop from sheer rock faces to wrest fish from Saguaro Lake below. Desert Belle has ferried sightseers through this picturesque lakefront within the Tonto National Forest since 1964, giving them rare glimpses of a thriving ecosystem that's inaccessible by foot or car. As the Desert Belle boat cruises leisurely, guides point out various flora, fauna, and extraterrestrials disguised as Arizona wildlife dotting the landscape. As riders listen to the narration from the shaded upper deck or air-conditioned lower deck, they can visually bask in cactus-studded desert vistas.
