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 today’s Groupon to the Alpine Sidney Spit Ferry, which departs from Beacon Pier in Sidney. Choose between the following options:
• For $17, you get two adult weekday round-trip tickets (up to a $38 value).
• For $19, you get two adult weekend round-trip tickets (up to a $38 value).
The Alpine Sidney Spit Ferry transports passengers aboard the Alpine II to the scenic surroundings of Sidney Spit, which is accessible only by water and boasts myriad eye-friendly birds and marine life. The 50-foot catamaran hosts up to 40 travelers for 25-minute rides, during which it travels up to 12 knots, revs its Volvo twin diesel engine, and refrains from popping excessive wheelies. Upon docking, salt marshes, tidal flats, and beautiful beaches await visitors, providing ample opportunities for beachcombing, hiking, or camping. Like the rush-hour shuttle to the moon, the ferry offers an extensive schedule of departures, allowing explorers to come and go as they please. Children younger than 1 can travel at no additional cost.
