Americans have always been determined to blaze new trails, whether wading through the waist-deep layer of tumbleweed covering Arizona or hacking through the petrified forest of national flags on the moon. Conquer the final frontier, the ocean, with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a five-hour boat rental from Everglades Holiday Park (a $75 value).

Motorized fishing boats navigate the meandering waterways of the Everglades on scenic five-hour excursions through the heart of the region’s majestic wetlands. Groups of up to four cruise through the grassy swamps and inlets, pausing to consult an included Everglades map or to observe natural wonders such as alligators, rare birds, and herds of feral airboats. Aspiring ship captains learn how to hold the reins on their aquatic steeds during an in-depth tutorial that acquaints them with the boat’s features and controls.

Species of fish such as the largemouth bass call the Everglades home, and fishers can sate their thirst for sea candies with poles, bait, and tackle available to rent at the Park’s facilities (fees vary). Though not included with today's Groupon, a fishing license ($17.50) is required for each guest to fish, and professional guides can ward off gators and aggressive patches of spanish moss with a 36-hour notice.

Everglades Holiday Park

Everglades Holiday Park unveils the natural splendor of one of Earth's last undisturbed territories with invigorating airboat tours and interactive alligator presentations. Visitors to the untamed river of grass explore its wetlands and observe its animal residents, and tour guides keep encroaching gators at bay with pointed comments of historic and ecological significance. The powerful airboat fleet features a covered passenger vessel for all-weather observation and an innovative zephyr-harnessing propulsion system that allows boats to swiftly skim across the Everglades' grassy rivers while sneaking up on unsuspecting patches of spanish moss. The park is also home to Animal Planet's Gator Boys; most of the reality show's episodes are filmed here.

The park complements boat tours with 20-minute gator presentations that star a cast of live alligators and shed some light on nature's last remaining dinosaurs. The boat captains are always available for private charters, which can be stocked with food, beverages, and ice at the park's 24-hour general store before heading out for fishing expeditions or leisurely cruises through the glades.

Great place to spend the day exploring the Everglades.

We had such a great time. Although the service in the morning was quite slow, there was one gentleman (unfortunately I can't remember his name) who was extremely helpful. The boat was so great to use and we had a great time taking it out for a day of fishing! We will definitely be back!
