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 $37, you get a one-hour electric boat rental from The Electric Marina Boat Rental (a $75 value), located in St. Petersburg. Each Endeavour Green electric craft holds up to 12 people and is available daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Electric Marina Boat Rental allows boaters to enjoy a smooth pleasure cruise atop an electric vessel, a clean, green floating machine to fulfill shimmering blue ocean dreams. Each 24-foot, easily navigable floating apparatus arrives liberated from the shackles of loud engine noises, pricey fuel costs, and diesel-guzzling first mates. Bring along some beverages to chill in the on-deck fridge, kick it in the shade using the remote-controlled conversion-top cockpit cover, then blast your favorite environmental yacht-rock hits on the four-speaker marine stereo system as you inhale charming snapshots of The Pier and downtown St. Petersburg. The safe, reliable nautical navigator gently ripples through the waters at about five miles per hour, permitting safe dives from its swim transom and stomach-friendly, splash-resistant visits to the onboard sink, shower, and private restroom. Though not included with today's Groupon, a propane grill is available for rental at $28 per rental. Call ahead to make a reservation.
Today's Groupon is not valid on major holidays.
