Renting a boat gives you a chance to drive a boat, which, in turn, lets you feel a small piece of what it's like to be a boat. Test-drive a new lifestyle with this Groupon.
$89 for a Two-Hour Electric-Boat Rental ($178 Value)
As up to 10 adults cruise beautiful Lake Union in a 21-foot electric Duffy boat, they can opt to have the windows open, though the boats can also be fully enclosed and heated for those who set sail on chillier days.
The Electric Boat Company
The Electric Boat Company sets customers loose on Lake Union in trusty, battery-powered Duffy boats. Set-sailors steer their own 21-foot craft while traditional lake chanteys spill from the sound system, which includes a CD player and an iPod jack. Other passengers can lounge on leather seats in the cabin area, whose windows can be kept open to invite in the breeze or fully closed to avoid being poked by a marlin. Before a trip, guests can pack a cooler with snacks and congealing chemistry projects, pick up forgotten ice and drinks at the on-site snack shop, or satisfy appetites at one of 12 restaurants accessible by boat, including Ivar's Salmon House, McCormick & Schmick's Harborside, and Chandler's Crabhouse.
