Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Explore the enigma with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a jet boat ride from Smoky Mountain Jet Boat Rides (up to a $31 value) in Bryson City.

Piloted by Coast Guard-licensed captains who have gone through comprehensive training, Smoky Mountain Jet Boat Rides glide passengers across the waters of Lake Fontana. Tours begin with a five-minute trip to the Almond boat dock, where water tourists board their barges and drift down the Nantahala River toward Lake Fontana. During 40-minute excursions, eyes are enveloped by a vista of The Great Smoky Mountains, as vessels whiz atop still waters leaving sailboats and out-of-gas speedboats in their wake. A lifelong devotee to the tourism industry, Smokey Mountain president Nick Williams heads a crew that delicately assembles each watercraft used for touring speed-thirsty voyagers. Structures based on the New Zealand Style Jet Boat allow Smoky Mountain's schooners to perform impressive aquatic escapades, such as spinning within their own length and impersonating animatronic sharks. There are no restrictions on age and expeditions must be scheduled in advance.
