Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the water, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man’s triumphs with today’s Groupon: for $98, you get a two-hour boat rental for up to 10 people from The Electric Boat Company (a $194.91 value).
The Electric Boat Company furnishes up to 10 passengers with their own heated, amenity-drenched Duffy boat that surrounds lakefarers with a 360-degree view as they traverse picturesque Lake Union. Wheel-wielders steer their own 21-foot craft for two hours while traditional lake chanteys spill from the sound system, which includes a CD player and an iPod jack. Unwrap a packed lunch at one of the boat’s two tables, or tie up at the dock of one of a dozen restaurants that perch on the water. Renters must be at least 25 and should show up 15 minutes early with a driver’s license or passport equipped with a flattering photo, a credit card in case of boat damage, and a cell phone.
