Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry because of their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one ticket to a Fall Foliage Cruise from DC Cruises (up to a $36 value). Tours depart from the Washington Marina.

DC Cruises allows adventuring sightseers to witness the nation's capital on the water, as only the ducklings of democracy have done. During the 90-minute Fall Foliage cruise, passengers drift past the colorful foliage surrounding the city's protected park areas and monuments, such as Washington's popsicle-stick sculpture of Betsy Ross. A complimentary cup of hot apple cider with cinnamon combats river chills alongside light snacks and beverages available for purchase onboard. DC Cruises' boats carry only 90 passengers, ensuring that everyone enjoys an intimate sightseeing experience without the mass overcrowding and mosh pits of many boat tours.

DC Cruises

DC Cruises showcases the capital from an uncommon angle: the waterfront. The open-top yacht has a stylish lounge, air conditioning and panoramic windows. The top deck is the observation/dance deck. Both drift on the Potomac River from Georgetown to the Tidal Basin, taking in views of the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument. Sunset and happy-hour cruises cast the buildings against colorful skies. At night, the moon glows on the marble structures, giving them new mystique. DJ parties, wine cruises, and crab feasts combine on-the-water sightseeing with local fare, and cherry-blossom cruises showcase signs of spring: trees dotted with pink blooms and newborn bills cooing in their bassinets on the Mall.

Really enjoyed the cruise and breathtaking views. Crew were very friendly. Only thing I would recommend is turning down the music as it takes away from meeting new people and engaging in conversation.
