What You'll Get
Like the rings of a tree, the flare 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 in Bloomington. Choose from the following options:
- For $119, you get a four-hour rental of a seven-passenger, 18-foot Runabout speedboat with your choice of tube or wakeboard (a $264 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 Monroe can relish the sights of one of Indiana’s largest and most waterlogged reservoirs 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, leading up to 12 passengers to that untravell’d world whose margin fades when you take your contacts out to go swimming. Individuals hankering to feel the wind in their hair and sea salt lining their gums can opt for a swift, seven-passenger Runabout, a speedboat outfitted with your choice of rental tube or wake board to shift dramatic high-speed chases into hilarious high-speed chases. 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.

About Paradise Rental Boats
Paradise Rental Boats carefully curates fleets of Yamaha, Bayliner, and Sun Tracker boats, so that sun-kissed riders can jet across the sparkling waters of Indiana’s Lake Monroe and Georgia’s Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona at their leisure. The company's vessels range from party barges and yachts—which hold groups of up to 26—to the smaller, two-person WaveRunner, whose highly responsive steering suits drivers trying to chase down and catch their fish dinner. Onboard radios and CD players let mariners groove to their favorite tunes, and the company also rents optional accessories for water sports, such as wakeboards, water skis, and artificial bait for licensed fishermen.
