Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry, due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an admission for one on a two-hour Lewisville Lake cruise from JT's Boat Rentals, launching from a slip on Lewisville Lake at Eagle Point Marina (a $40 value).
The Lewisville Lake sunset and Sunday brunch cruises set aspiring sea legs atop a comfortable floating floor to tour the area's scenic sunsets and sparkly waterscape. Guests can feel free to nosh on their own food and drink before they mount the aquatic steed and venture into the blue expanse, where they can find beautiful lakeside homes, lush natural wildlife, or how their reflection looks in freshwater. Excursions set sail from Eagle Point Marina every Friday (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.) and Sunday (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) from February 20 to May 15. Whether you choose the daytime or dusk trip, the cruise makes for a great romantic getaway for lovebirds, a fine escape for city-dwelling families, or a pleasant respite from broken swivel chairs.
JT’s Boat Rentals
With 10" sub-woofers and spacious floors, Joe and Toni Watson’s fleet of catamarans were designed with revelry in mind. Licensed party-boat operators often chart routes to Party Cove, though they’ll happily stop anywhere on Lake Lewisville and crank up their vessel’s iPod-outfitted stereos. When parties rage beyond sunset, the boats’ LED lights flicker on, casting a cool glow on the open deck and any stowaway flying fish.
