Commuting via sailboat has a number of advantages: there are no traffic jams, there are no hitchhikers with hooks for teeth, and if you hit a deer it's definitely the deer's fault. Enjoy the ease of aquatic transportation with today’s Groupon: for $27, you get a two-hour sailboat cruise for one adult on Lake Pepin from Sail Pepin (a $52.75 value).
The U.S. Coast Guard–certified Sail Pepin lets passengers relish the breeze in their hair as they ride the 31-foot sloop Messenger over the waves of Lake Pepin. Sail Pepin’s cruises start as spring winds down on May 15 and offer five departures a day. The Messenger begins her day’s work at 11 a.m. in the spring and continues to play in Lake Pepin with her rubber ducky throughout the day. An evening jaunt lets aquatic adventurers drink in scarlet sunsets, and a nighttime excursion sends the sloop’s hull slicing through the water under the watchful eye of the moon. Guests interested in on-board meals can bring along their own picnic basket, cooler, or ice-cube-enclosed meal. Though not included with this Groupon, catering can be arranged for an additional fee, and the Harbor View Cafe is available right by the shoreline. Each trip accommodates up to six passengers.
The sails of the 31-foot sloop Messenger wave in the wind during Sail Pepin’s outings. The staff and crew man the vessel for fun family outings, romantic cruises, sailing lessons, and team-building programs. At their location in the historic Breakwater Building on Lake Pepin’s waterfront, they also entertain guests with a wine bar, coffee shop, and live music.
