Cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with this Groupon.

Setting sail Saturdays and Sundays in August and September at 2 p.m., the high-tea cruise steeps a variety of teas to sip alongside sandwiches, pastries, scones and fresh strawberries with Devonshire cream. Semi-formal attire is requested, so as not to clash with the white linens. Accent Cruises is located directly below the Public Market in a blue-and-yellow floating office next to the ferry dock ramp.
As the sun sinks below the English Bay, the lights of downtown Vancouver flicker on. Accent Cruises’ fleet of yachts provide panoramic views of this crepuscular splendour as they glide past Burrard Inlet, Point Atkinson, and Whytecliff Park during private and public charters. The event planners at Accent Cruises strive to match the opulent backdrop of international ocean freighters and coastal mansions with equally lavish cruises. A resident chef prepares B.C. salmon and garlic teriyaki chicken during the dinner cruise, which departs 2-6 nights a week, and 200 party guests can carouse on the M.V. Burrard Queen's deck for private charters. Vessels come with stereo systems, fully stocked bars, and at least one passenger who used to be a class clown, further enlivening cruises.
