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 $125, you get a one-hour gondola ride for up to eight people from Old World Gondoliers (up to a $300 value).
At Old World Gondoliers, patrons embark on a sophisticated cruise down the Indy Canal aboard classic Venetian vessels.

Romantic duos or troupes of up to eight people lavish in the moonlit scenery of the evening ride, sipping on BYOB drinks while immersed in the picturesque views of the Indy Canal.
