After spotting vacationers parasail over Florida's beaches, the founder of Put in Bay Parasail decided to create a way for North Coasters to get the same thrill above Lake Erie's waters. Since then, thousands of parasailers have taken flight and sailed up to 300 feet over the water, enjoying beach views and attempting to touch the sun while USCG-licensed captains safely steer. Setting forth from South Bass Island, Captain Jason Hall outfits guests with life vests and valuable knowledge nuggets, gleaned during more than two decades of water adventuring. Alternatively, high-quality paddleboards send aqua explorers on adventures closer to Erie's water. Staff point boarders in the direction of great spots for sunbathing, bobbing, or surfing based on their skill level and fluency at communing with lake trout.

Snugly resting against the scenic shores of Lake Erie and the borders of a 500-acre nature reserve, Sawmill Creek Resort houses a 240-room lodge and a slew of fun-inducing recreational activities. Before or after catching 40 winks during a one-night stay, use a $25 amenity credit to sample the resort's numerous entertainment bone ticklers. Obliterate dimpled orbs on the 18-hole par 71 golf course, or smooth out knots and sass-mouthed grapes with a one-hour massage or winery tour. The resort's marina hosts the Sawmill Explorer, which guests can board for a Saturday-evening sunset cruise on the lake ($12/person), as well as rentable jet skis, kayaks, and curmudgeonly sea captains. Although the amenity credit is not valid for entertaining bored stomachs, the resort boasts a diverse smattering of restaurants teeming with seafood, steaks, and casual fare.

Get cozy with Lake Erie on the back of a splishy-splashy water beast. North Coast Parasail launches waverunners from the sandy shores of Cedar Point Beach, directly behind Cedar Point's Hotel Breakers. Before taking to the open waters, riders will receive a brief equipment orientation and safety run-down. Your Groupon is good for a full hour of wave riding, during which you will feel the wind in your hair-piece as you rip along the Ohio coast, taking in views of Sandusky and Cedar Point while leaving that pesky paparazzo in the dust. North Coast's waverunners are big enough to seat two—twins and well-timed comedy duos are welcome to redeem their Groupons simultaneously and ride together, and sexy loners can opt to fly solo on the two-seater.

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.

The company puts on five shows a year, filling the space with musicals, dramas, and migratory box fans within the space of an eight-week summer season.
