Chartering a sailboat to see the city grants an awe-inspiring perspective that riding a bike or a benevolent falcon just doesn't provide. View the cityscape sans ornithological hurdles with today's Groupon to Just Sailing Ltd.. Choose between the following options:
- For $135, you get two tickets to a 2.5-hour semi-private sailing adventure (a $283.40 value).
- For $218, you get a three-hour private sailing adventure for up to six people (up to a $490.50 value).
Just Sailing Ltd.’s licensed U.S. Coast Guard captains transport passengers beyond the city skyline atop a scintillating Catalina 30 sailboat on chartered journeys. Semi-private sailing duos disembark from Monroe Harbor with four other passengers to take a laketop tour of the city, possibly granting spellbinding views of the ferris wheel at Navy Pier, glimpses of the museums' towering columns, and adorable photo ops of Trump Tower sunning itself in the Loop. As sailors bond with new companions on the 2.5-hour trek, the captain may venture past the breakwall to hunt for bigger waves and add an element of adventure to the sensory feast.
Larger groups can opt for a private charter made up of their favored few, allowing for full reign of waterborne activities. Tote yacht unions up and down the lakeshore while gazing upon the glittering cityscape, or anchor in open water to don swimsuits and dive for Lake Michigan's mysterious undersea L train. Passengers are welcome to inquire about and help the captain with basic sailing operations if they are so inclined; although not included with today’s Groupon, Just Sailing Ltd. also offers in-depth sailing lessons. Sailboat squads are free to bring food and beverages to fully immerse themselves in the sailing experience.
