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.
Choose from Three Options
- $199 for a two-hour pontoon-boat rental, valid any day of the week (a $400 value)

Up to 12 passengers cruise the Chicago River on two-hour trips and Monroe Harbor and around Navy Pier on four-hour trips, all on the 22-foot luxury pontoon-boat Nauti Time. Fuel is included, though captains are required to provide a credit card on which the business puts a refundable $1,000 hold for a security deposit. Those who purchase insurance ($29.99) will have this amount reduced to $500.
Vantage Yacht Club
Luxury and expense often go hand in hand. Not so at Vantage Yacht Club, where members and nonmembers alike test the waters of yacht ownership without diving in. Guests have a number of options when it comes to setting sail: they can rent boats for a few hours for a picnic on the waters surrounded by their local scenery. They can also choose to lease them for a whole season, or commission a longer Vantage Voyage, which require a larger commitment because their destinations may range from Australia to Spain.
