Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

The Halloween Hayride Bar Cruise leaves from Brielle Yacht Club seven nights a week on the hour, every hour in the evening (from 6 p.m. to midnight). Trips stop three times to let passengers ashore, where they hit bars and nightclubs, such as Jack Baker’s Wharfside and Sand Bar Restaurant. They linger as long as they like before catching the next boat back to the yacht club. Onboard, a full bar and a DJ keep the party going. Cornhusks hanging from the canopy make the boat a spooky haunt, and hay bales turn the seats into holiday sit-upons.
The Treasure Island Adventure takes passengers to an island. There, they follow a map to find a treasure chest and a pumpkin patch. In the patch, they search for pumpkins that resemble Sammy Davis Jr. and take home their favorite. Boats run after school hours on weekdays and all day on Saturday and Sunday through October 31.
Manasquan Water Taxi
Manasquan Water Taxi is a 40-foot riverboat. The wide, low-riding vessel has an open-air deck shaded by a canopy, and colored light from neon signs casts a glow on the water’s ripples. The water taxi cruises at up to 25 miles per hour, ferrying riders between bars and restaurants, to islands, beneath fireworks, and over any wimpier boats in its way. A sound system turns the boat into a floating boom box, and riders can drink at the full bar onboard and nibble hot dogs and subs.
