As the motorcycles of the sea, jet skis provide their operators with the unbridled joy of open-air wave riding and the opportunity to flaunt "Mom" tattoos while wearing a sleeveless-leather life jacket. Climb aboard an aquatic chopper with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a two-hour guided jet-ski ride for up to two riders from Balboa Water Sports, launching from Newport Beach (a $350 value).

Balboa Water Sports acquaints fledgling wave riders with the thrill of jet-ski adventure and the beauty of coastal California during guided tours from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday–Sunday. Led by a knowledgeable Pacific pathfinder, riders saddle up on 2011 Sea-Doo GTI 130 jet skis and slice their way through the majestic Southern California coastline while spying popular landmarks and landshark hideouts. Trips launch from the scenic Newport Harbor before striking out toward Laguna Beach, passing pristine sites such as Crystal Cove, Emerald Bay, and the Corona Del Mar beach. Along the way, riders learn the nuances of handling a jet ski, greet native sea lions in their natural environment, and trade unintelligible barbs with dolphins. Before taking off, all riders will be equipped with a life jacket and a wet suit (if desired).
