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 today's Groupon: for $30, you get two adult tickets for a two-hour harbor cruise and sea lion adventure from Hornblower Cruises and Events (a $54 value).

The aqua-primed guides of the Hornblower tours chauffeur passengers through San Diego Bay to gaze at more than 50 landmarks while demystifying their individual histories. During the two-hour jaunt, tour takers can trade barbs with marine and airborne wildlife, including the chatty California sea lion. The vessel also passes the historical Point Loma lighthouse, the Navy SEAL training compound, and the Star of India, which is the world's oldest active ship. Onboard video clips educate wayfarers about modern-day environmental efforts in San Diego while catering to passengers who only trust information dispensed by television.

The Hornblower tour boats host comfortable indoor and outdoor areas as well as a snack bar stocked with drinks. Harbor cruises depart five or six times daily from just north of Broadway Pier, and tours return to port in about as much time as it takes for a dozen sea lions to change a light bulb.

Although Hornblower Cruises and Events sometimes offer discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
