Boats are the most effective way to travel on water, second only to running really, really fast. Give your legs a rest with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour sightseeing cruise for two from Riverside Tours (a $50 value). Cruises depart from Regatta Pointe Marina in Palmetto, Twin Dolphin Marina in Bradenton, and Tarpon Pointe Grill.

Captain Tom pilots Riverside Tours' open-air pontoon boat, the River Skipper, along the Manatee River, Gamble Creek, or Terra Ceia Bay during two-hour sightseeing cruises that take place seven days a week. During the smooth ride, his business partner, Susan, regales passengers with factoids about the area as Tom helms the wheel and steers down the tranquil river, avoiding icebergs. Up to 39 passengers perched on bright yellow benches glide smoothly past picturesque waterfront homes, as well as Floridian flora and fauna, as the schooner shares aquatic real estate with dolphins and orange-sunset reflections. This licensed-and-insured, Coast Guard–certified craft is partially covered, proffering protection from sun, rain, and seagulls begging for autographs.

Customer Reviews

Very informative and relaxing. Our tour was great. The captain and narrator were very nice. We would do this again, but on a warmer day. Bring a jacket incase the sun goes in and the wind picks up, although they did close windows for the people that wanted them closed. Very accommodating. You also can bring a snack...

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon❤

Perfect activity for guests visiting or even if you live here. Sunset cruise is fun, a little more party-like. The afternoon cruise is educational and historically informative. Boat ride is smooth, roomy, you can walk around, has a rest room onboard and you can bring your own cooler. Bring your fav beverage and lunch. Sit back, enjoy the beauty of the Manatee River and environs. Dolphins,etc.
