Until the personal watercraft was invented, mankind's only hope for summer fun involved hitting candied hams with tree branches. Celebrate watery invention with today's Groupon to Vancouver Water Adventures. Choose between the following options:
- For $133, you get a tandem Jet Ski tour (a $266.56 value, including HST).

Vancouver Water Adventures launches guests on Jet Ski and Sea-Doo tours of Vancouver Harbour, Howe Sound, Bowen Island, and Vancouver's other surrounding aquatic areas; all tours launch from 1812 Boatlift Lane in Granville Island. During the two-hour wild tour, a nautical navigator educates customers on the scenery and wildlife of Vancouver's local waters from atop a Jet Ski ($119 per person, plus tax). Expert guides lead pairs to the Pacific Ocean for stunning views of the shoreline and potential small talk with local whale pods. Tours equip riders with a snack and drink, fuel, a wetsuit, a life jacket, and a one-day boater's licence issued to the driver. More experienced riders ready to tickle Poseidon on their own may instead rent ruddered steeds for a two-hour free-roaming excursion.
For tour option, a $25 damage insurance fee or major credit card is required; for rental option, a major credit card is required for deposit.

About Vancouver Water Adventures
Vancouver Water Adventures equips maritime adventurers with wet suits, life jackets, and personal watercraft for exploring the waterways of False Creek and English Bay. The staff stocks a fleet of jet skis, paddleboards, and kayaks, which riders can paddle past beaches and along inlets. In addition to soaking up scenic ocean views and spying on local wildlife, guests can accompany skilled guides on jet ski tours to the area's most impressive sights. Those operating machines must have a valid driver's licence, and all passengers must be at least 6 years old without factoring in alternate theories of relativity.
