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 $30, you get one admission to a 2.5-hour sunset cruise, two drink tickets, and on-board appetizers from Making Waves Boat Club (a $60 value). The cruise departs on Thursday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. from Eagle Point Marina in Lewisville.
From the double decks of the majestic Star of Texas, the Making Waves Boat Club will break from its usual wakeboarding, water-skiing, and re-creating James Bond chase scenes to host a 2.5-hour cruise on Lake Lewisville on Thursday, July 14. After boarding at 5:30 p.m., up to 200 passengers can mingle in the air-conditioned cabin or explore the upper deck before the boat returns to the marina at 9 p.m. As the vessel skims along the water, wash down an assortment of finger sandwiches and cheeses with drinks from one of the on-board wet bars, toasting to the lake's horizon as its ripples glitter orange from the setting sun and capsized carrot-juice tankers.
Speedboats can also be booked if pontoons are unavailable.
Making Waves Boat Club
Between voyages, Making Waves Boat Club’s fleet of watercrafts bobs cheerfully upon glistening marina waters as staffers scrub their hulls to a shine and fine-tune their motors, performing regular checkups. Each meticulously maintained vessel helps fulfill Making Waves’ mission—to grant aquatic enthusiasts a chance to explore local waterways without the hassles involved in boat ownership such as repairs, bills, and carpooling requests from neighborhood pirates. Each rental gives boaters the freedom to float wherever they choose as they spend a day in the sun, play watersports, and feel breezes that seem to come out just for them.
