Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic

The Theresa E. Connor and Cape Sable may not be sea-borne, but that doesn't stop visitors to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic from boarding the wharf-side vessels. Once aboard, they can explore above and below deck while retired fishermen and captains demonstrate their fishing skills and recount tales from their seafaring days. Inside the museum's 19th-century buildings, three exhibition floors share space with a 7-foot high vista tank, and 11 salt water tanks that comfortably house oceanic critters such as lobsters, eels, and Atlantic whitefish. More animals including scallops and sea anemone occupy the wharf, whose Tidal Touch Tank lets visitors stroke a bumpy sea star or share their first kiss with a mermaid.

Elsewhere in the museum complex, guests can launch a model schooner, watch fish-filleting demos, learn about Prohibition-era rum running, or take in fishing-related films in the Ice House Theatre. The Old Fish Factory Restaurant & Ice House Bar and the Salt Store Gift Shop, housed in a former salt storehouse, provide souvenirs both edible and otherwise.

The museum's season lasts from mid-May to mid-October.

Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic's rates vary based on age.
