What You'll Get
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 to Bay Area Excursions. Clients may choose to board cruises at either the San Francisco or Sausalito locations. Choose from the following options:
- For $68, you get a two-hour sailing cruise with cocktails and other beverages for two people (a $136 value). Groupon buyers can add guests for an additional $40 per person. Extra sailing time is $60 per hour.
- For $112, you get a four-hour sailing cruise with cocktails and appetizers for two people (a $249 value). Groupon buyers can add guests for an additional $40 per person. Extra sailing time is $60 per hour.
- For $413, you get a four-hour sailing cruise and limousine excursion with cocktails, appetizers, and a barbecue meal for five people (an $826 value). Limousine pickup more than 15 miles outside of the San Francisco city center is available at a rate of $2 per mile. Groupon buyers can add guests for an additional $40 per person. Extra sailing time is $60 per hour and extra limo time is $40 per hour.
The attentive staffers at Bay Area Excursions treat guests to cushy adventures by slinging them cuisine and mixing cocktails aboard spacious watercrafts and limousines. During sailing cruises, voyagers sightsee from a 35-foot luxury yacht, which is infinitely more comfortable than sightseeing from atop a 35-foot whale. Passengers can opt to glimpse a variety of landmarks, from the fabled confines of Alcatraz to McCovey Cove or the glistening Golden Gate Bridge. For beverages, refresh palates or polish monocles with an assortment of cocktails, champagne, and other libations. Onboard noshes for the four-hour cruise could include meat, cheese, and veggie plates as well as grilled, bacon-wrapped shrimp; the menu is customizable according to taste and dietary restrictions.
Further satiation awaits guests during the limousine and yacht trip, with round trip transportation to and from the vessel. Appetizers begin on the car ride to the port, and the vehicle’s full bar is also stocked with a bottle of orange juice to be used for mimosas or watering barren coral reefs at the dock. Once onboard, passengers are treated to a savory barbecue meal. For the trip itself, guests can create their own itinerary or choose from pre-designed excursions such as docking at Angel Island for a movie projected onto a boat’s sail or venturing in the limo to wine country prior to a sunset cruise. As with the yachts, limousine trips depart year-round, making it easy to arrange a trip around work schedules or the Martian solstice. With permission, Bay Area Excursions’ staffers will snap digital photos of the sightseers on all trips before distributing them via email.
