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.

$12 for Two-Hour Tour aboard the Tall Ship Kajama (Up to $24.80 Value, Including Tax)

Guests board a restored 1930s schooner and embark on a two-hour excursion on Lake Ontario. During the tour, passengers can break from gazing at scenic views of the Toronto skyline to help deckhands raise and lower the sails or spin the helm. The ship's crew sets off a cannon to mark the end of each tour and the start of the all-passenger thumb war. The Kajama departs from Harbourfront Centre two to three times daily from early May through Labor Day. This Groupon is valid for one adult, child, or senior admission.

Great Lakes Schooner Company

The Kajama's white masts billow in the wind as its sharp prow cleaves the waters of Lake Ontario. The three-masted, gaff-rigged 164-foot schooner casts the same striking silhouette as it did 80 years ago during its first incarnation as a trade ship that sailed from Spain to Norway. Today, Great Lakes Schooner Company has restored the German-built schooner to its maiden-voyage splendour. Though they've preserved the boat's 1930s charm, they also retrofitted the Kajama for its daily tours with such amenities as a licensed bar and galley where cooks bring selections from their menu of pub fare to life.

Though it serves as the crown jewel of the fleet, the Kajama is flanked by four other large and small ships. Like the Kajama, each vessel boasts its own storied history or high-end cabin. The 1910 paddle steamer, Trillium, for example, once ferried the Royal Family to and from Toronto Island, stopping to visit the working-class fishing communities along the way. Alternatively, it's the panoramic lake views and a retractable top-deck roof that characterize the Obsession III. Great Lakes Schooner Company rents out their fleet for corporate cruises, charter tours, weddings, and pirate-school reunions, all of which launch from the scenic downtown harbourfront.
