What You'll Get
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 $139, you get a one-day trial membership, including a boat orientation course and use of the boat for the remainder of the day, to Freedom Boat Club (a $399 value; boat fuel not included) in Carrabelle.
Since 1989, Freedom Boat Club has been plunking mariners into their choice of seafaring crafts, granting unlimited usage. Freedom's crew scrubs, maintains, stores, and preps boats, allowing eager boaters to devote more time to fishing, family boat outings, and finally reaching the elusive horizon line. The club boasts a hassle-free experience, with no dock or insurance fees required. The one-day trial membership sets sail with a boat orientation course for up to eight people, led by a seasoned boat captain. After the course, ship mates can choose one of five boat types to take to the water for the remainder of the day, including the Nautic Star 210 SC, ideal for family outings, or the Pro Sport 2000 Blue Water, perfect for capturing speckled trout or for intercepting covert, bottle-encapsulated messages.
Nestled in a quiet fishing town, the Carrabelle location offers prosperous offshore, bay, and upriver fishing sites, as well as access to pristine white-sand beaches with crystal-blue waters and crab-guided crab-walking tours.
