Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as gambling on knife fights or naming a dog a swear word. Float above the law with this Groupon.

Aboard a 33-foot sailboat, passengers sail through Bodega Bay after inspection of a US Coast Guard-certified captain. Whales, seals, and other aquatic life are often visible in the water, and every boater sports a lifejacket.
Bodega Bay Sailing Adventures
Picking a criminal out of a lineup is hard, but at Bodega Bay Sailing Adventures, the staff knows that picking a plant out of a lineup is even harder. On the company’s naturalist tours, naturalist Katja Svendsen arms passengers with comprehensive ID cards, printed with pictures and descriptions of local flora and fauna. As they identify the plants as well as the whales and seals native to Bodega Bay’s hamlet, Svendsen explains topics such as the causes of tides and human’s impact on the bay. Meanwhile, US Coast Guard-licensed captain Rich Crumley steers the sailboat. Crumley can also captain the 33-foot vessel during traditional tours, supervising passengers while they steer to ensure they don’t turn in a tiny circle forever.
