Sailing offers the thrill of navigating a handsome vessel through choppy waters without the threat of appealing to handsy sea otters. Break waves, not hearts, with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a two-hour introduction to sailing lesson at Key Lime Sailing Club & Cottages in Key Largo (a $200 value). Lessons normally take place Wednesdays and Saturdays two hours before sunset.
Key Lime Sailing's qualified instructors mint brand-new wind wielders during introductory classes tailored to beginners. During each two-hour session, expert instructors will teach students seafaring basics, including how to set sails, steer, and discern a mermaid from a redheaded manatee. Hands-on instruction in trimming, tacking, and jibing will prepare pupils to captain a 22-foot single-masted Catalina, which they can independently control by the end of the lesson. Propelled by the wind and a new sense of purpose for Batman bed sheets, students can cruise the scenic Florida Bay.
