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 from Scovare Expeditions, located at the Newport Seafood Grill Dock. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get two tickets to a harbor-and-bridge holiday cruise with cider, hot chocolate, or coffee (a $90 value).
- For $125, you get six tickets to a harbor-and-bridge holiday cruise with cider, hot chocolate, or coffee (a $270 value).<p>
Scovare’s salty captains unveil the windblown channels of the Willamette River to budding sailors and sightseeing passengers. Harbor-and-bridge holiday cruises embark at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 7 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday through the end of April, warming passengers on frosty winter days with a heated Norwegian Harbor launch, a cozy covered Hunter 260 sailboat, and hot winds provided by a gang of lesser gods. Steamy scents fill the cabin as passengers sip from mugs of apple cider, hot chocolate, or coffee. A pair of friends or a sextet of sextuplets can gaze out over the darkened shoreline as their craft slips through starlit waters on a mission to rescue stranded solar-powered submarines. Additional tours may be scheduled due to demand.

With more than 25 years of maritime experience, Shane St. Clair captains Scovare Expeditions' fleet of sailboats, unveiling the windblown channels of the Willamette River to budding sailors and sightseeing passengers. During sailing tours, passengers can bob across the river while taking in the views of the volcanic caldera of Elk Rock Island or feast on three-course meals as the sails fill up with wind like a balloon ruining its dinner. A new Cape Cod Catboat available for charter takes tours, classes, and small dinners on a glide, and a sleek Aquarius sailboat keeps guests boating in style. Those interested in learning the ropes can sign up for sailing lessons, where savvy instructors teach novices how to command the helm, guide the lines, and barter with miserly seagulls.
