What You'll Get

Brunch and the sea both represent states of limbo that are neither here nor there, and are opportune opportunities to feast upon a plate of sand. Embrace the wonderful collision of these like-minded worlds with today's deal: for $35, you get a two-hour champagne-brunch cruise (a $76 value) from Hornblower Cruises & Events. Your yacht will depart from Pier 3 on The Embarcadero. Each Groupon covers one person, but you can buy up to four to bring along several friends or musketeers.

Hornblower takes its guests on a cruise over the cerulean-blue waters of San Francisco Bay for a champagne brunch, full to bursting with sparkling joie de vivre and savory je ne sais quoi. Items from past menus have included fresh baked goods, chef-carved slabs of turkey and ham, French toast, fresh salads, and vivid, seasonal fruit displays. Champagne flows freely from bottles into the waiting mouths and cupped hands of the seafaring guests. While delicious edibles invade your largest head-hole, gorgeous views of the San Francisco Bay will captivate your dual orbital openings, from the dazzling waves and Golden Gate Bridge to the skyline of the city itself. With sight, smell, and taste taken care of, hearing and touch are bolstered by the sounds of live musicians and the feel of a partner’s hand during a pre-, mid-, or post-feast dance.

Hornblower, in an effort to preserve the cuteness of dolphins (also known as "Dr. fishes"), has turned its fleet into an elite squadron of eco-friendliness. Powered by fuel-efficient Tier 2 marine diesel engines, the boats work in harmony with the seascape they cruise through. With the entire experience dappled in natural, midmorning light, guests will always recall the buttery gold of the champagne glittering in its flute, the breeze ruffling the hair of a loved one or enemy, and the precise color of the mustache on the man brushing crumbs trapped in his stache into the swirling waters below.

Not valid for special events, including Mother's Day or Father's Day. Call ahead to make a reservation.
