The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry. Get soaking-wet excitement with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a 75-minute WaveRunner tour of the Statue of Liberty for one or two people from Blue Streak Water Sports in Brooklyn (a $250 value).
Blue Streak Water Sports sets adventurers atop a fleet of powerful, private watercrafts, launching them over the glittering waves of Gravesend Bay toward the majestic pinnacle of the Statue of Liberty. After hands-on WaveRunner training with a seasoned water wizard, passengers alight their vessels and speed across the water in the trusty wake of an experienced tour guide. Gaze at the expansive city skyline as you tear toward your target, catching envious glances from faraway pedestrians and overhead pigeons stuck in traffic. Travelers should bring a camera in order to capture the journey's bounty of photo ops. Tours finally reach the Statue of Liberty's towering form, sidling in close enough for patrons to see its rusty copper detail and scrawled graffiti proclaiming "Calvin Coolidge was here," granting an awe-inspiring vantage point to be remembered for years to come.
