Sailing is an excellent opportunity to find discounted sea life, from half-off dolphins to clearance-rack crawfish. Get another such water-based bargain with today's deal. For $150, you get a three-hour sailing cruise for up to six people from B Sailing, a $270 total value ($90 per hour). People go to Seabrook-based B Sailing to skim the waters beyond where sharks hunt children just to feel the windy thrill of the ride and replenish the coin-fed waters with wishes.

It's impossible to go a day without overhearing exclamations about Galveston Bay's beauty: the crystal-clear waters, the white-sand shores, the miniature water tornadoes that dance across the bay like angry babies. Both a sport and a leisure activity, sailing gives undiscovered balancing and wind-facing muscles a good workout while families relax on deck with stunning panoramic views. Captain Alan Bates's 34-foot J/105 sailboat catapults past average 40-foot sailboats with Road Runner–like speed and energy. Scud with confidence in this sloop for three hours over the clear waters of the bay. The nature of your sailing excursion depends on variables like weather, current, and the seasonal Leviathan-activity level, but Captain Bates and family have been sailing since 1974, with experience racing in every imaginable weather condition. Whether you're an experienced sailor, fledgling enthusiast, or about to turn back into a reverse mermaid, this sailing cruise is an excellent way to thrill through an afternoon and gain practice for future sailing endeavors.

With spring's tide rising as quickly as an angry, charging lamb, and summer's warm breezes just around the barnacle's bend, now is the time to take advantage of the weather and make memories to sustain the spirit through next year's nuclear winter. Up to six people are allowed on B Sailing's J sailboats, so gather up your professor, movie star, and aquaphobic friends for a thrilling three-hour tour.

B Sailing

B Sailing's origins go back nearly 40 years and 1,300 miles, when Alan Bates learned to sail on his father's boat on Lake Erie. His dad welcomed anyone aboard who had an interest in sailing, turning the boat into a de-facto sailing academy that ran both regattas and chartered pleasure cruises. Having gone on to race in the Great Lakes, along the Atlantic Coast, and in the Gulf of Mexico, Mr. Bates now continues his lifelong passion through B Sailing. Both students and members have access to a fleet of J/Boats, which are known for their stability, ease of operation, and sails stitched together from Blackbeard’s 400-thread-count bed sheets. Harbored at Seabrook Shipyard, these vessels glide onto Galveston Bay.

It was a fun trip and would definitely buy another groupon.

Was a great experience, had never been sailing. The owner was very experienced and made us feel very safe. He even let us both drive the sail boat. Would definitely do this in the future.
