Fast1Charters' 35-foot, high-speed cigarette boat, helmed by Captain Greg, whisks passengers on an exhilarating and breathtaking jaunt over Lake Erie's tranquil waters. During your cruise west from Edgewater to Rocky River, you'll enjoy the rush of 70 mph speeds while the sun bobs atop the water like a perfectly safe yet radioactive buoy. On the way back, you'll get dramatic views of Cleveland's lit-up skyline pitched against the water. As you watch the sun melt into the ripply waters, pair your eye feast with an occasional cooling freshwater spritz. Fast1Charters' sunset cruise is BYOB, so bring along a couple of beers and toast your pals as you snuggle into the wind's exhilarating embrace. Daytime seafarers may enjoy the afternoon cruise, departing Saturdays from Kelleys Island or Catawba at 1 p.m.
A 34-foot King Cat twin-hull catamaran sets sail on the waters of Lake Erie, its 900-horsepower engine churning up a frothy wake as it leaves port and enters the aqueous abyss. At Sara-J Sportfishing Charters, guests spend a sunny afternoon on the open water casting and reeling in the lake's bounty of fish. With more than 20 years of experience, captain Gary Carpenter is confident enough in his abilities that he promises that charters will either reel in fish by the end of their trip or passengers receive their money back. Tours set out in the morning or afternoon as captains pilot vessels towards schools of walleye, steelhead, or perch swimming beneath the surface. Passengers soak up the sun, nibble on snacks, and regale stories of reeling in their first bluegill or misplaced water-skier.
In a zombie apocalypse, there are usually just two camps: the living and the undead. But not all zombies are alike at Lake Eerie Zombie Mud Run: some run, some lunge, and some appear out of nowhere. The ghouls chase the 5K's runners, who navigate a muddy route full of obstacles that challenge endurance and nimbleness. If zombies take all their flags, runners have the chance to win an extra lifeline by completing an additional obstacle at one of the run's vaccination stations.
Otherwise, they cross the finish line infected. Regardless of their fate, all racers receive entry to the post-run survivor's party, as do all spectators, who can cheer their favorite participants on from zombie-proof viewing areas.
Gravity loses its grip at Jet Pack Water Adventures. With two locations, near Hocking HIlls, and Sandusky on Lake Erie, certified instructors strap customers into a water jetpack's five-point quick-release harness, which uses twin streams of low-pressured water to elevate adventurers up to 30 feet in the air. Attached to a nearby boat, the system's 200-horsepower engine pumps water through a 30-foot hose and churns through a staggering 1,000 gallons per minute. This allows jetpack pilots to run along the water, speed through smooth turns, and dive below the surface. Back on the shore, instructors can remotely control the jetpack's throttle, which allows beginner pilots to stay focused on games of extreme Marco Polo.
