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.
$19.99 for a jet-boat ride (a $39 value)
During the one-hour thrill ride and adventure tour, passengers board 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 that includes dolphins and birds. Passengers even experience what it feels like to “spin out” in a boat with Pure Naples’ signature 360-degree Kiwi Turn. The jet boat departs at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.
Pure Fort Meyers
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 they facilitate individual exploring with Jet Ski and boat rentals. They even take their boats out on regular deep-sea or bay fishing trips and private charters for the serious angler.
