What You'll Get
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: for $21, you get a boat-borne eco-tour into the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge, including a meal, from Blue Moon Cruises (a $42 value). Tours run Saturday, January 1 through Sunday, February 27 and depart from Sale Creek Marina near Soddy Daisy.
Blue Moon Cruises tag-teams tour-takers with picturesque scenery and brain-tickling information within the comfortable confines of a 70-foot SkipperLiner cruise boat. Whether your eco-dream is spotting an endangered whooping crane or learning about bald eagle toupee-grooming habits, the company's eco-tours will hold you rapt throughout the 3.5-hour ride. Witty and informative tour guides point out fun facts about everyone's favorite winged animals and recount the Native American history of the Chattanooga area. Full-comfort, climate-controlled cruising is offered on the lower deck, though open-air decks allow for the greatest views. Bring a pair of binoculars and a high-zoom camera to maximize your observational powers and preserve memories too awe-inspiring to be captured by a Play-Doh sculpture.
Five TripAdvisors give Blue Moon Cruises an average of four owl eyes:
- The Blue Moon Cruise we took for the 4th of July was fantastic! What a fun activity- great value and fun for the whole family. We found the food to be quite tasty and the sites and scenery so pleasant and enjoyable aboard a leisurely cruise along the river. Captain Dave was an awesome tour guide- both witty AND informative. – stephanieke
- It was relaxing, informative, and the one of the best things we did on our family vacation. We will go back!!! – lilwheezmom
