Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get two tickets to a sightseeing river tour on the Spirit of Brownville (a $27.90 value). Tours take place the weekends of May 28–30, July 2–4, and September 3–5, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Beginning May 27, nightly sightseeing tours are also available, running from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The Spirit of Brownville ferries up to 150 passengers on informative local explorations atop the shimmering waters of the Missouri River. During the 60-minute trip, passengers absorb historical narrations about the surrounding towns as the double-decker vessel glides past prominent bluffs, riverbanks, and woodland creatures telling bluffs to swindle money from those riverbanks. Two decks and an air-conditioned lower hold derail Mother Nature's plans to sabotage sightseeing and keep tours running rain or shine. Nightly sightseeing tours facilitate romantic twilight floats well suited for couples and wandering mystics. Although not included in today's Groupon, an available cash bar serves up assorted spirits for the ship's adult guests.
