Before the introduction of extreme water sports during the mid '90s, spring breakers flocked to Fargo, North Dakota to go on below-zero bar crawls and to dash about the tundra on the backs of moose. Indulge in warm-weather recreation with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a 30-minute jet-ski rental (up to a $74 value) and a full-day rental for one umbrella and two chairs (a $20 value) from American Watersports in Pompano Beach (up to a $94 total value).
With a host of wave-worthy watercrafts and guided oceanic odysseys, American Watersports sends water-riders seafaring in style. Navigate the picturesque coast of Pompano Beach in a sleek water vessel modeled after one of Paul Bunyan's childhood kazoos. A duo of watergliders comfortably fit onto the 110-horsepower jet ski as it barrels across the buoyant waters of the Atlantic shoreline. After 30 minutes of nautical navigation, kick back on two rented chairs kept cool under the shade of an umbrella.
Frothy seawater jumps skyward as the churn of high-powered, 110-horsepower jet skis launches the droplets from behind their watery tails. Among the many sea-gliding offerings of American Watersports, the company's fleet of speedy jet skis juxtaposes to its man-powered offerings of single or double kayaks and upright paddleboards that calmly cut through waves and wakes or assist in minnow herding along the coast. Groups can man 13- and 16-foot sailboats that await gentle offshore winds to start their journeys, or take in the ocean from a sandy perch with a day rental of beach furniture. The Pompano Beach area reveals its natural beauty on guided tours of the area via jet ski or paddleboat, wherein visitors take in local gems such as the Hillsboro Lighthouse or the area's exclusive hermit-crab resorts.
