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 this Groupon.
$17 for 90-Minute Sightseeing or Sunset Cruise ($35 Value)
Cruise Naples provides picturesque views of Naples Bay from the calm confines of its seafaring vessels. Aquatic voyagers can grab a seat on the 90-minute sightseeing cruise, which offers a narrated water jog through the wildlife and history of Naples, the United States' first city, as eyes search for dolphins, bald eagles, and manatees. Alternatively, sunset cruises offer peepers a glimpse at the harbor aglow in the day’s last rays and the shore’s twinkling lights.
Cruises are available seven days a week with departure times at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. Sunset cruises typically depart an hour before sunset. Tickets for children aged 12 and younger can be purchased from Cruise Naples for $15 each.
Pure Fort Myers
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.
