Boat captains must master nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with today’s Groupon to Ponce Inlet Water Sports. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a 90-minute eco tour for two (a $50 value)
- For $49, you get an eco tour for four (a $100 value).
Ponce Inlet Water Sports’ U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captains navigate boats along the scenic coastline, pointing out lazily drifting manatees and preening shore birds during the 90-minute tour. Up to 20 guests lounge on the flat-bottomed boat—which is fully shaded by an overhead canvas—snapping photos of leaping dolphins, swimming manatees, and gracefully moving stingrays. If the tide permits, the aquatic jaunt pauses to set anchor at Spoil Islands, where guests can dip toes in the water or collect sand dollars to deposit in a CD account with an overly literal banker. Ponce Inlet Water Sports provides shuttle service to and from nearby hotels for no extra charge.
