Even though water covers most of the earth's surface, humans spend most of their lives on land and a small portion in the air while they're sleeping. Float on with this Groupon.
$85 for a Two-Hour Electric-Boat Rental for Up to 10 ($170 Value)
The quiet, eco-friendly electric boats can cruise down Tampa’s waterways at up to 7 miles per hour, after departing from a dock near the Tampa Convention Center downtown. Each boat is outfitted with a removable canopy top to protect against the elements and a small ice-filled cooler. Passengers should arrive 15 minutes early for their rentals to accommodate a mandatory safety and vessel orientation.
eBoat Tampa began with a pregnancy craving: mom-to-be Anndrea Dohring wanted to glide along downtown Tampa’s Hillsborough River aboard a quiet, fume-free boat. A month after their baby was born, her husband, Josh, realized she—and other Tampa citizens—could realize her dream aboard electric boats. Together, he and Anndrea founded eBoats Tampa, an electric boat-rental company whose fleet of almost silent, eco-friendly boats can shelter up to ten people. Renters glide through the city at up to 7 mph on BYOB jaunts or custom guided tours, which often showcase waterfront sights, or search for the ice cubes that keep the river cold.

“This is one of the wonderful things to do in Tampa. Each time I take an eBoat trip with friends and visitors, they are awestruck by the beauty of a city that they didn't really pay attention to before seeing it by boat. Highly recommend.”
“I almost hate to say how much we enjoyed it. I don't want it to get so busy that we don't get a boat at the time we want it. Seriously, I will go there again even...”
“I almost hate to say how much we enjoyed it. I don't want it to get so busy that we don't get a boat at the time we want it. Seriously, I will go there again even without a Groupon. FYI, I had scheduled the eboat in July right before the Groupon expired. It rained that day and it was an entire month before I was able to reschedule. They still honored the Groupon for the full amount. Great business and great people.”
