Ocean cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with this Groupon.
$175 for a Two-Hour Sunset Cruise for Four with a Boarding Gift ($350 Value)
Groups of four depart from Two Rivers marina in Williamsburg and float south toward the ships at Jamestown. The boat then heads back up the Chickahominy River, where herons, ospreys, and bald eagles flit along the riverbanks. A final stop at the mouth of the Chickahominy affords breath-stealing views of the sunset. A boarding gift and ice-cold water are provided, and guests are welcome to bring other beverages and snacks.
Carefree Boat Club
The boating experts at Carefree Boat Club empower their members to explore the region’s waterways at the helm of like-new, professionally maintained water vessels. Safety is paramount, so before club members can take the helm, they must attend a classroom training session and two on-the-water training sessions with Carefree Boat Club’s dock master. During these sessions, they learn navigation, docking, and boat safety. After receiving their safety certificates, members gain access to the fleet of deck boats, fishing boats, sailboats, pontoons, cruisers, and watersports boats.
The club’s dock staff also holds the water vessels themselves to high safety standards. They inspect boats weekly using a 50-point safety checklist, and outfit boats with safety equipment such as flares, horns, flotation devices, and earplugs for blocking out siren songs.
