Before the invention of the personal watercraft, fun-loving beach-goers were forced to suffer the imprecations of the impersonal watercraft, which preferred to just be left alone in the hot tub. Celebrate tropical weather and modern watercraft technology with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a one-hour WaveRunner rental (up to a $140 value) and two chaise-lounge rentals (a $10 value each) at Miami Beachsports's Miami Beach location (up to a $160 total value).
Miami Beachsports pairs aquaphiles with fast-paced watercraft for exhilarating one-hour adventures, zooming across the deep blue sea. After completing a brief, state-mandated safety test, speed-seekers launch one of Beachsports's Yamaha WaveRunners directly from the beach and proceed to skim across the surface of the unfathomable pelagic depths. WaveRunner wranglers can jet past sunbathers and leave nemeses trailing in frothy foam before handing off the keys to a copilot, as guests are free to split the WaveRunner hour between two people. With this deal, you and a friend also get to spend the rest of the day sprawled in beach chairs in a satisfied state of repose until the sun sets, reminiscing about that moment of sweet, unfiltered joy experienced on the water.
Located on one of Miami Beach’s swankiest strips of sand, Miami Beachsports’ prime location—directly between Fontainebleau Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton Miami Beach—is ideal for tourists. Weekday street parking and a large parking garage across the street offer easy access for local hydro-seekers, pizza-delivery boys, and touring klezmer bands. Call ahead to verify weather conditions.
Though Miami Beachsports sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Miami BeachSports shoots thrill-seekers into the wild blue yonder with adrenaline-filled trips at the stern of Yamaha WaveRunners. Aquatic cowboys wrangle the sea-slapping crafts, churning up wake and waking up the Krakens that live along the oceanfront boardwalk. Guests take in seldom-seen vistas while screaming along the waves, looking back at the strip of beach between Fontainebleau Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton Miami Beach where Miami BeachSports is located. Once back on shore, guests can rent the shop's chaise lounges or oversize umbrellas for beachside relaxation.
