Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the ocean, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man's triumphs with this Groupon.
$16 for a 90-Minute Public Cruise with Snack and Dessert ($33.45 Value)
Pilots guide boatfuls of passengers across the shimmering waters of Lake Minnetonka during Wayzata Bay Charters' 90-minute public cruises. Passengers peer over the railing of the 60-foot lake cruiser to view more than 125 miles of shoreline dotted with opulent lakeside homes and natural features such as trees, beaches, and boulders shaped like Don Knotts. When not strolling the decks to heckle passing trout, participants can affix gazes to satellite programming on two flat-screen TVs, or groove to tunes from a 2,000-watt sound system. Though not included in this Groupon, a full cash bar and catering services are also available. The cruise begins and ends at the Bayview Events Center. This Groupon is valid for adults aged 12 and older.
Wayzata Bay Charters
With a passion for boating the waters of Lake Minnetoka to take in views of the region's natural beauty and lush green landscapes, Wayzata Bay Charters' owners charter their 60-foot lake cruiser to make the experience accessible to all. The owners decked out their two-level cruiser—which can host up to 60 people—with a full bar, two satellite TVs, satellite radio, a 2,000-watt sound system, and enough helium balloons to keep both the boat and the party afloat. Believing a jaunt on the lake makes for an ideal event whatever the occasion, they've designed packages specifically for weddings and bachelorette parties, and they still offer public cruises to assure everyone has a chance to take to the water.
