Like the rings of a tree, the flair on a grizzled boat captain’s hat equals his years at sea multiplied by the number of times he’s been burped up by a whale. Accent your cap'n’s cap with today’s Groupon at Paradise Rental Boats, valid at either its Cartersville or Gainesville locations. Choose from the following three options:
- For $87, you get a four-hour rental of a 12-passenger, 21-foot party barge (a $182 value).
- For $96, you get a four-hour rental of a two-person WaveRunner (a $197 value).
- For $114, you get a four-hour rental of a seven-passenger, 18-foot runabout speedboat with your choice of tube or wakeboard (a $243 value).
For more than 30 years, the friendly ship-stewards at Paradise Rental Boats have provided guidance, clean hulls, and entertaining afternoons to seafaring folk and their landlubber companions. Aquanauts voyaging across glimmering Lake Allatoona or Lake Lanier can travel within the comfortable confines of three vessel options (life jackets included). Strap on your commodore antennae and take up post atop a 21-foot party barge, hosting up to 12 passengers. A WaveRunner built for two provides intimate tide time for couples seeking an adventurous getaway or parents rewarding their favorite child with an afternoon far from the cloying grasp of their other child. Individuals hankering to feel the wind in their hair and lake salt lining their gums can opt for a swift, seven-passenger runabout, a speedboat outfitted with your choice of rental tube or wake board.
All rentals last for four hours, but boatswain hardy enough to brave waves for eight hours can purchase two Groupons. Paradise Rentals’ helpful FAQ for Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona advises customers on the dos and don’ts of boat etiquette, including alcohol policies, insurance coverage, lake topography, and the hard-and-fast rules of the sea-vessel license-plate game. Paradise Rental requires a $500 security deposit as well as 21+ ID for drivers. Guests are responsible for the cost of gas consumption during their rental (typically, a conservative average is 5 gallons per hour of engine time). Call ahead to reserve your boat. Walk-ups are subject to availability.
