Bodies of water are frequent metaphors used in poetry because of their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon to Fast1Charters in Cleveland, Lakeside Marblehead, and Kelley's Island. Choose from these options:
- For $66, you get two tickets on a semiprivate sunset cruise for a weekday evening, departing from Edgewater Ramps (a $110 value).
- For $66, you get two tickets on a semiprivate Saturday-afternoon cruise, departing from either Catawba or Kelleys Island (a $110 value). A ferry ride from companies such as Miller Boat Ride, which Fast1Charters can help you plan, can take you to the departure point.
- For $78, you get two tickets for a Friday-evening semiprivate sunset cruise, departing from Edgewater Ramps (a $130 value).
Fast1Charters' 35-foot, high-speed cigarette boat, helmed by Captain Greg, whisks passengers on an exhilarating and breathtaking jaunt over Lake Erie's tranquil waters. During your cruise west from Edgewater to Rocky River, you'll enjoy the rush of 70 mph speeds while the sun bobs atop the water like a perfectly safe yet radioactive buoy. On the way back, you'll get dramatic views of Cleveland's lit-up skyline pitched against the water. As you watch the sun melt into the ripply waters, pair your eye feast with an occasional cooling freshwater spritz. Fast1Charters' sunset cruise is BYOB, so bring along a couple of beers and toast your pals as you snuggle into the wind's exhilarating embrace. Daytime seafarers may enjoy the afternoon cruise, departing Saturdays from Kelleys Island or Catawba at 1 p.m.
All cruises are weather permitting; advanced reservations are required.
