Ocean cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 2.5-hour Biscayne Bay Sunset Cruise from Play Time Water Sports (a $75 value).
The Biscayne Bay Sunset Cruise provides tourists and locals alike the opportunity to witness the spectacular sunsets and watery wildlife of Biscayne Bay. During the outing, guests sail on a 49-passenger, 50-foot catamaran, journeying south into the bay and feast their starving eyes on historic sights like Stiltsville––a souvenir from Miami’s legendary rum-running and rummy-playing days––and the Florida White House, where former president Nixon spent his summers ice fishing and writing his novel, Hop on Pop. On the return trip, you can take in the unobstructed, four-dimensional views of downtown Miami lit up at night and hit up the onboard bar, which offers a bottomless supply of complimentary food and beverage options, including beer, wine, soft drinks, and a variety of snacks. Excursions set sail from Marbella Marina, Wednesday through Sunday at 5:30 p.m., with boarding beginning at 4:30 p.m.
A white sail propels a 50-foot sailing catamaran out into Biscayne Bay. The wind-powered watercraft belongs to Playtime Watersports, whose captains narrate ocean sailing tours or host private and corporate events as sunsets paint the sky. Elsewhere on the bay, wave runners and pontoon boats—two of Playtime Watersports' other rental watercraft options—churn up water as they drag race with thrill-seeking dolphins.
Despite its name, Playtime Watersports doesn't limit itself to on-water revelry. The staff hosts corporate outings such as Beach Olympics, with events including beach volleyball, sand sculpting, and scavenger hunts.
