Boats open the oceans to exploration just as airplanes allow for navigation of the stratosphere, and blimps let passengers time-travel to the 1930s. Explore new frontiers with this Groupon.
$25 for One Ticket on a Cruisin' with Santa Boat Tour ($25 Value)
The Tropics Boat Tours ferry explorers through the Intracoastal Waterway aboard a double-decker luxury catamaran alongside dolphins and sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico. Guests will spend two hours sailing through Clearwater Pass to the Gulf, charting a course among frolicking pods of bottlenose dolphins and marooned land sharks. Ocean-goers can sip unlimited complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks while catching sun on the catamaran’s open-air upper deck or relaxing in the shade of the lower level.
As the vessel romps through the surf, children can rattle off their wish list to Santa Claus as the captain points out celebrity mansions, natural wonders, and seabirds attempting to earn lifeguarding certificates. Children aged 3 or younger are admitted for $5. Cruisin' with Santa tours take place until Christmas Eve; see the tour schedule.
