What You'll Get
In the middle ages, the guided tour was usually a ploy to rope gullible castle enthusiasts into a lifetime of servitude and labor. Enjoy a non-working getaway with today's Groupon: for $145, you get a two-hour private boat tour of Jordan Lake from Jordan Lake Tours (up to a $300 value). This tour is good for up to 10 people and will depart from Poe's Ridge Boat Ramp.
Tour guide and wildlife expert David Griffin has years of experience boating and fishing on Jordan Lake, and he strives to share his knowledge and passion for the area in fun, relaxing tours. During your two hours on the nearly 14,000-acre lake, David will entertain and enlighten you by pointing out rare wildlife and valuable pieces of lakefront installation art. Rise early to catch the adorable first steps of the infant sun, or bask in the full midday rays with an afternoon tour. Children are welcome on all tours, unless you elect for a wine tour ($10 extra per person; no outside alcohol), in which case all participants must be gracefully pre-aged for at least 21 years.
Life jackets are provided, as are snacks, soft drinks, and water; sunscreen and cameras are highly encouraged. Like a nap in the bed of a moving pickup truck, a Jordan Lake tour provides both a respite and an adventure.
All guests must be five years of age and older. Not good for the birthday tour or day on the lake tour.

About Jordan Lake Tours
Jordan Lake Tours guide David draws from more than 15 years' experience to navigate groups across scenic Jordan Lake. After helping passengers settle into the vessel, he ferries them on aquatic journeys to spot local wildlife such as finches, bald eagles, and toupee-wearing herons. David shares his knowledge of the local animals and points out any camera-worthy sights. Throughout tours, the captain keeps his passengers safe and comfortable with provided life jackets (only required for passengers under 12 years of age) and snacks. Jordan Lake Tours' pontoon boat can accommodate groups of 14.
