What You'll Get
Biologists estimate that water makes up 65% of the human body, 71% of the planet's surface, and 0% of the R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire. Conquer the planet’s most prevalent liquid with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a 90-minute boating orientation and a four-hour boat rental at Branson Boat Club at Rock Lane Marina (a $708.18 value). The total value of this Groupon can be applied toward the purchase of an annual membership at any time during the orientation period, which lasts one year from the completion of the registration form. The boat club is closed between December 1 and May 1.
At Branson Boat Club, families and friends cast off into the waters of Table Rock Lake on leisurely personal retreats. Boaters bring family members along for a 90-minute orientation in which Branson Boat Club's harbormaster imparts hands-on boating-safety instruction and raps about his favorite episodes of Gilligan's Island. Afterward, families set sail aboard their choice of the club's six boats. Plumb the lake depths for fish in the 22' Fish Series pontoon boat with two fishing seats and a 9' canopy, or kick back on the 22' Cruise Model Relax pontoon boat with a canopy, stereo system, and CD player. Boaters must pay for their own gas (around $30–$75) and bring along their own wisecracking parrot navigator.
