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 $8, you get an adult boat cruise tour (a $16 value) at Cumberland River Cruises in Lebanon. This Groupon can also be applied toward more-expensive tours, though you will have to pay the difference. Reservations are required.

With Cumberland River Cruises, water travelers will enjoy scenic vistas of the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake from the deck of Discovery, a red-, white-, and blue-topped pontoon boat operated by Jesse Caskey. The company's river tours treat hungry eyes to the naturally lovely sights of nature, like a full moon’s reflection in the river’s shimmering looking glass, the beautiful reds and bruised pinks that suffuse Old Hickory Lake when the sun sets the horizon on fire, and—in autumn—a symphony of falling gold-red and butter-yellow leaves as majestic flocks of Major League Baseball teams fly south for the winter. Most tours operate from Thursday through Sunday and are tentatively scheduled for 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m., although schedules will vary based on sunset time. All tours include water and soft drinks.

For a few extra sheets of Monopoly money, children ages 2 to 12 ($10) and accompanying grown-up children ($18) get three hours of flotatious fun during the Kids Kruise, which leaves at 10 a.m. from Thursday through Sunday. Country music fans, however, may want to opt for the Stars on the Lake tour ($25), a 2.5-hour waterway wander among the riverside homes of various country music stars such as Johnny Cash, Marty Stuart, and Elvis Presley’s dog (tours depart from Black Jack Cove on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.). Treat friends, family, church groups, and cybernetic hive-mind collectives to an evening on the water with today's Groupon to Cumberland River Cruises.

Cumberland River Cruises

The Discovery is an apt name for the Cumberland River Cruises pontoon boat, which explores the winding waters of Old Hickory Lake and the Cumberland River. Though available as a venue for on-water private parties and other events, the vessel's chief purpose is to provide scenic public tours. Every Thursday through Sunday, an experienced guide leads groups of 6 or more people on tours such as the nature tour, which showcases lakeside vistas of cliffs and creeks. Another variation on a basic trip includes the sunset tour, which passes a local cave just as the resident gray bats depart for their nighttime hunt.

Customer Reviews

Nice leisurely trip up the scenic Cumberland. Really pretty at this time of year. Capt. Jesse and his first mate Trippy are so friendly and thoughtful. They provide blankets if you need them but you should bring a jacket for the evening cruise.

Dress warm if it's chilly, because it is colder out on the water.
