Sailing around the world is much easier when you learn which knots are edible and why dolphins aren't marriage material. Learn the basics with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a three-hour sailing tour of San Francisco Bay for two people from Golden Gate Sailing Tours (up to a $150 value).

Golden Gate Sailing Tours totes voyaging pairs past some of the West Coast's most prominent sites during customized, three-hour jaunts through San Francisco Bay. US Coast Guard–licensed captain Bob Cole anchors each journey with an adjustable amount of commentary, sharing his treasure trove of knowledge about passing landmarks and nautical sites. While aboard the luxurious Bolgeskrekk, passengers can net navigational experience by taking the helm, working the sails, or spearheading a Broadway-worthy rendition of "Come Sail Away." Alternatively, windjammers can simply kick back and allow Captain Bob to steer toward historic sites such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Angel Island.

Complimentary drinks and snacks comfort each touring guest, and an on-board iPod dock allows them to further personalize the journey with prized playlists. Passengers are also encouraged to pack extra clothes, sunscreen, and a camera that they don't mind lending to courteous sea lions.

Golden Gate Sailing Tours

US Coast Guard–certified Captain Bob Cole stands at the helm of the 35-foot sloop Bolgeskrekk during Golden Gate Sailing Tours’ outings. Designed for all occasions, the tours cruise through the San Francisco Bay for birthdays, anniversaries, or sightseeing trips that explore the rich waters and history of the bay. Captain Bob—who is also Red Cross–certified in CPR and first aid—also holds hands-on sailing lessons for students of all ages and skill levels.
