What You'll Get
Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with this Groupon.
$37 for One Admission to a Bay Highlights Boat Tour ($75 Value)
As they take in skyline views on the San Francisco Bay Highlights tour, participants listen to a narrated overview detailing famous sights, such as Jack London Square, Port of Oakland, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, and the Palace of Fine Arts. The boat also circles around the bay islands, getting close enough to stick post-it-note messages on historic ships, such as the SS Jeremiah O'Brien and the USS Potomac. Each tour lasts about two hours and includes a personal flotation device for each passenger, with up to 12 passengers on the boat. Riders are encouraged to bring gloves during cool-weather tours, as well as cameras and binoculars.

About Bay Voyager
Though Captain Charles Jennings' former life includes stints as first officer and tugboat engineer, he now exclusively leads tours of San Francisco Bay on his 28-foot custom-built, U.S. Coast Guard–approved rigid inflatable boat. He calls upon his previous maritime experience when passing sites such as the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, which he served during the 50th anniversary of Normandy Invasion. He also regales passengers with the bay's history, and legend while the boat skims the water at up to nearly 40 miles per hour, courtesy of its 300-horsepower Yamaha engine.
