Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

Offshore Adventures Chicago
The 35-foot Alpha Puppy and the 30-foot Sundog could be the names of two extremely long dachshunds, but they're actually the two boats comprising Offshore Adventures Chicago's fleet. Captain Rick, a USCG Master Captain, helms the boats on the company's Lake Michigan cruises, with routes that highlight views of the city's skyline. As he steers, passengers enjoy beverages they brought along and listen to their personal playlists rather than the music of a nearby seagull pecking its xylophone. During the summer, twice-weekly night cruises augment the typical cruise selections and offer spectacular views of the city's fireworks displays.
