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 $15, you get one ticket for a two-hour boat tour of Cocoa Beach's Thousand Islands from Island Boat Lines (up to a $28 value). Tours depart from Sunset Waterfront Cafe & Bar.
Island Boat Lines sweeps landlubbers off their feet for two-hour eco-adventures that bring boaters up close and personal with some of Florida’s most exotic wildlife. The captain and crew narrate each journey, guiding guests through a rich flood-tide delta deposit that forms a labyrinth of natural trails and canals. Sharp-eyed sightseers may see manatees, flocks of coastal birds, and bottlenose dolphins as they drift, play, and reorganize their magazine collections. Float alongside residences on the Thousand Islands to get a peek at local life, and revel in your freedom to move about the U.S. Coast Guard–approved sightseeing vessel. As part of this deal, Groupon customers can also receive 10% off at Sunset Waterfront Cafe & Bar.
Island Boat Lines
The multicolored eco-tour vessels operated by Island Boat Lines sport a vibrant mix of bright yellow, pink, green, and sky-blue colors. The presence of so many colors mirrors the diversity found in the environments the boats often enter around the canals of Cocoa Beach's Thousand Islands. When the company's skippers aren't venturing into these chromatic habitats––where pelicans thrive alongside great blue herons––they're steering a 99-foot paddle-wheel boat. The boat sets off on weekends for riverboat dinner cruises that bring their own share of wildlife encounters as passengers often spot bottlenose dolphins stealing the dessert cart.
