Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour scenic boat tour for two (up to a $50 value) from Four Winds Charters in Tantallon. Tours depart at 6 p.m. and return at 8 p.m.
Four Winds Charters' Transport Canada–certified captains lead guests on scenic open-water excursions of St. Margaret's Bay to take in pine tree-speckled views of Peggy's Cove and the Aspotogan Peninsula. On two-hour tours, guides point out natural white-sand beaches, estate mansions, and private islands, and guests relax on the compact vessel's dual decks. While meandering among coves guests can view breaching dolphins and whales and create secret flippershakes with seals. The ship's staff allows guests to travel with packed lunches and coolers and provides catering (at an additional cost) upon request.
Four Winds Charters
Certified by Transport Canada for safety, Four Winds Charters' experienced captains have been floating guests across picturesque St. Margaret's Bay for more than two decades. Tours and private charters set sail toward scenic coves and private islands as dolphins and sea birds pass by on their watery commutes. Four-hour deep-sea fishing trips drop anchor approximately 5 miles from shore, allowing the included hooks, rods, and hand lines to grab at mackerel, cod, and shipwrecked inner tubes. Catering is available for both private charters and fishing trips upon request.
