Cruise boats let common folk travel while taking in all of the sights of land and sea, unlike pirate ships reserved for those with limited views, such as eye-patched gentlemen and bandana-donning skeletons. Set out on an unobstructed adventure with today's Groupon from Goodtime Lake Erie Island Cruises in Sandusky. Choose between the following options:
- For $13, you get one adult ticket to a daytime island-hopping cruise (up to a $27 value).
- For $8, you get one children's ticket (ages 5–12; children under 5 are free) to a daytime island-hopping cruise (a $16 value).
Goodtime Lake Erie Island Cruises transports sea legs of all ages to the American Islands of Lake Erie on an airy U.S. Coast Guard-approved, 355-passenger navy blue and white vessel. During the nine-hour island hopping cruise, lakelubbering adventurers tour Kelley's Island and Put-in-Bay on the historic South Bass Island with ample time to sightsee, shop, and feed Great Lake–sized hungers. Island explorers can choose to see the sights on foot or rent a tram, golf cart, or bicycle for an additional fee. The water-infused voyage treats eyes to the sights of Cedar Point amusement park, the Marblehead lighthouse, and more, and ears listen to the captain's live narration and his wooden leg's impersonation of a parrot.
Boarding begins at 9:00 a.m., and the Goodtime I sets sail at 9:30 a.m. from the Jackson Street Pier in Sandusky, returning to the same spot at 6:30 p.m. Check the schedule for a full list of launch dates and hooky-playing alibi possibilities.
