Sailing daily from MacMillan Wharf and stretching 39 feet lengthwise and 16 feet abeam, the Coast Guard–approved Viking Princess accommodates up to 42 passengers and two crewpersons per cruise. Several different cruise formats introduce water wanderers to coastal views of varying sites, such as Cape Cod’s prime real estate, well-known lighthouses, and hidden Provincetown gems. The Princess also embarks on festive holiday-themed voyages, such as Fourth of July or Tax Day cruises. Cape Cod Life's 2010 Gold winner for Best Kids' Activity, the Critter Cruise invites wee ones to pull up lobster pots and bottom dredges from the waters and safely inspect and handle the findings— such as blue fish, sea turtles, or humpback whales—alongside an expert naturalist. The Princess is wide enough to facilitate groups dancing to the sounds of the ship’s overhead stereo or to the tunes of local musicians during live-music cruises.
Captain Mike, a Coast Guard?licensed boater, takes singles, pairs, and groups of three onto the water in a boat built in 2011 and checked daily for safety. Parasailers prep for their ascent by strapping into equipment garnered from the world's leading parasail equipment manufacturers. A multicolored parachute then pulls them soaring into the blue firmament for a thrilling ride and views typically only seen while inside a paper airplane.
The six different parasailing experiences cater to varying tastes, with the Wet 'n' Wild option guaranteeing a dunk in the water and the Elevator Gone Mad flight promising patrons a quick shot into the air before falling gently back to earth. For another means of taking in the sights, the crew sets up beach-goers with safe, speedy jet skis that can hold up to three passengers.
Experienced snapshooter Sara Sun captures vivid portraits of babies, children, and families pleasantly emoting in retina-regaling landscapes. Mount a pillow fight, blow bubbles, or gleefully reenact moments of passive-aggressive dish passing in a 60-minute photo shoot devoid of affected grins and stiff poses. Afterwards, Sara bedecks the virtual walls of an online database with your personal proof gallery. Subjects peruse and choose their favorite to have made into an 11”x14” print, ideal for filling wall frames or shellacking onto television sets for feigned notoriety. Pictures come complete with basic post-shoot retouching (extensive retouching may incur an extra fee) and are posted online for five days.
Bask in bucolic solitude during a one-night getaway to Inn at Deep Creek's recently renovated lakefront lodge. Roosting in the sylvan slopes of western Maryland, the secluded chalet houses 29 distinct rooms with amenities such as flat-screen televisions, microwaves, iPod docks, and free WiFi. Guests can congregate on the broad community balcony to enjoy transcendental views of Deep Creek Lake and ponder the wonders of the wilderness, such as how trees tell each other jokes. The pet-friendly retreat is also in the vicinity of restaurants, sleigh rides, museums, antique stores, local art galleries, wineries, and more.
With names like "Red Hot Chili Pepper," "Moves Like Jagger," and "Rolling in the Deep," the specialty sushi rolls listed on The Monkey Bar - Johnny Thai's menu affirms its staff members' silly side. They channel this sense of humor into their creative takes on traditional Asian food. For example, the Big Red roll layers tempura shrimp with ten slices of tuna, while the Lady Gaga roll bowls over patrons with salmon and tuna that is tempura-fried, just like its namesake's outfit at the last red-carpet event. Traditional dishes such as General Tso's chicken and teriyaki plates can be ordered, but dishes such as Hawaii 5-O, which mixes chicken, beef, shrimp, scallops, and lobster, are a hallmark of the kitchen staff's inventive style.
