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 $15, you get a sightseeing or sunset boat tour from Cruise Naples (a $30 value). Cruise Naples provides picturesque views of Naples Bay, all from the calm confines of its seafaring vessels. Grab a seat on the sightseeing cruise during the day, or trek to the almost-dark side with the picturesque sunset cruise. Both 90-minute tours are available seven days a week, and offer a narrated water jog through the wildlife and history of Naples. Cast your eye nets on the waterfront homes of Port Royal, or take in the ooh- and ahh-inducing antics of the native wildlife that often accompany cruises, including dolphins, bald eagles, and nature’s cutest cow, the manatee.
Five TripAdvisors give Cruise Naples a four-owl-eye average:
- Simply unforgettable. One and half hour cruise to see the sunset from the boat. Magical-Dolphins swimming along side [sic]. You also get commentary on the owners of the massive houses that surround the harbour. – IMPSurrey
- The crew were [sic] really friendly and funny. We saw 2 dolphins including one who swam & jumped in the wake of the boat, we also saw a manatee from a distance, and ospreys and a pair of bald eagles. It was a lovely morning. I highly recommend this trip! – rheebs, TripAdvisor

Father-and-son duo Captains Lance and Harry Julian founded Pure Naples in 2009 to introduce landlubbers to the pristine waterways that surround Naples. No strangers to the waters, the Julians draw on five generations of maritime business and 25 years of maritime-tourism experience to make their tours as fun and informative as possible. Together they introduce tourists to picturesque views of dolphins, bald eagles, and nature’s cutest cow, the manatee, with cruises, or they facilitate individual exploring with Jet Ski and boat rentals. They even take their boats out on regular deep-sea or bay fishing trips and private charters for the serious angler.
