What You'll Get
Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, but red sky at morning means the ship's been steered inside a volcano. Discover further aquaformation with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a round-trip ride to the Salt River (a $50 value) from Salt River Bus. The bus will pick up passengers at the Tempe Marketplace at 8 a.m. with additional pick-ups at Westgate City Center and Desert Ridge Marketplace.
Salt River Bus's fleet of vehicles sets a celebratory mood for day trips to Arizona's lakes and rivers. Inside each raucous wagon, a 2,200-watt sound system rumbles and sings as passengers sip on complimentary nonalcoholic drinks. At the destination, the Salt River rapids will carry voyagers on a refreshing tour marked by wild horses and sweeping mountains. Passengers may also rent a floating boom-box river radio to groove to tunes or check trout-traffic reports while drifting along the cool mountain-spring waters. At the end of the day, hydro-tourists return home safely regardless of their adult-beverage intake levels.
Salt River Bus departs from the river at approximately 6 p.m. Travelers should bring food, sun protection, and plenty of water in case the river gets thirsty.
