An aquatic setting can soothe tense nerves, which is why many doctors perform delicate surgeries on deserted sandbars. Unwind your mind with today's Groupon: for $197, you get a four-hour party-barge rental for up to 15 people with a captain from Austin's Boat Tours (a $395 value).
Austin's Boat Tours' experienced captains lead tours around Lake Travis aboard luxurious, amenity-laden watercrafts. Gather up to 15 friends, family members, or friends' family members and venture across the peaceful waters on a 34-foot party barge, complete with enclosed restroom, shower, sink, and stove. Burgers, brats, and pale bodies can be tanned to perfection on the built-in grill or cushy, sunlit seating areas, and a cooler can keep self-provided beverages or stowaway polar bears chilly. Meanwhile, riders can blare their appreciation for Mother Nature's beautiful handiwork using the boat's iPod-compatible stereo. Maritime merrymaking is made merrier with a helpful array of extra services, including safe transportation to and from the boat's departure site.
