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.

Choose from Three Options

As an experienced captain navigates a vessel around coastal waters, guests peer into blue seas to catch glimpses of whales and dolphins erupting from the crests of waves. When the boat reaches the protected wildlife areas around Mexico's Coronado Islands, passengers may spot elephant seals, baleen whales, and rare bird species. Tours begin at 9 a.m. and include continental breakfast, lunch, and nonalcoholic beverages. Check the schedule for available dates.

Pacific Nature Tours

Pacific Nature Tours' experienced captains and their crews navigate a seaworthy 70-foot, US Coast Guard–inspected vessel—the Eclipse—through Mission Bay waters in search of friendly marine life and ambivalent birds. As the Eclipse safely sails around island coasts, knowledgeable naturalists narrate the expeditions, which include two whale-watching excursions. Aquatic creatures ranging from dolphins and sea lions to pool noodles can be spotted in their natural habitats from the ship's spacious deck or from within the interior viewing area, which is equipped with satellite TV. As the Eclipse navigates Mission Bay, passengers can feast on lunch cooked fresh on board, which is served with 4.5 hour tours. Meals are also included in longer trips. All tours operate out of Seaforth Sportfishing.
