What You'll Get
Electric boats are preferable to gas-powered vessels, because they are environmentally friendly and easily recharged by passing eels. Tour the shocking seas with this Groupon.
$99 for a Two-Hour Electric Boat Rental ($300 Value)
Beneath the canopy of a Duffy electric boat, up to 10 passengers embark upon the Chicago River for two hours of serene sightseeing. After a brief driving lesson, the captain is free to navigate the vessel beneath bridges and around the river. Circular sofa seating cradles passengers as they make use of the central table for BYOB refreshments and queue up favorite sea shanties on the integrated, iPod-compatible sound system. Certified captains and tour guides are available for an additional fee. Customers can also take advantage of valet parking ($14 for up to three hours, not included in this Groupon). For more information, see Chicago Electric Boat Company's FAQ page.
