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, which gets you a sailboat rental from American WaterSports in Pompano Beach. Choose from two options:
- For $40, you get a two-hour Hobie Wave sailboat rental (a $75 value).
- For $55, you get a two-hour Hobie Getaway sailboat rental (a $110 value).
With a host of wave-worthy watercrafts and guided oceanic odysseys, American Watersports sends water-riders seafaring in style. Unacquainted sea legs can stand their ground on an easily navigated Hobie Wave sailboat, with room for two and an attached trampoline for artfully executed cannonballs or a surface appropriate for wrestling a dolphin. More accomplished adventurers will prefer the roomy Hobie Getaway sailboat, which at nearly 17 feet long provides room for six people, a trampoline, and a dictionary composed only of the word "aft."
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.
