Children love blues clues and juice, but not as much as adult children love a booze cruise and fermented juice. Enjoy the carefree days of adulthood with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a 90-minute happy-hour boat cruise with bottomless margaritas with Milwaukee Boat Line (a $19 value). The cruise departs from a convenient RiverWalk location, where downtown meets the historic Third Ward. Happy-hour cruises depart at 6:00 p.m. and run through Labor Day. This Groupon is only valid for Tuesday through Friday cruises.
Climb aboard the vintage 1922 Iroquois vessel—a 65-foot double-decker that is the oldest operational vessel on the Great Lakes—then batten down your booze buoy for an hour and a half of bottomless margaritas and half-priced cocktails, beer, soft drinks, and snacks. You can relax in the summer evening sun, take in the shade on the covered part of the top deck, or hop down to the main cabin for restock on margaritas and to nibble at the snack stations. As you drift effortlessly along the shores of Milwaukee, lend an ear to the ambient tunes and cast an eye on the lakefront and skyline.
Booze-cruising alone may leave loved ones thinly veiling their jealousy, so buy today’s Groupon for your friends and family, and request their company for an evening spent enjoying the great human pastime and dancing like you’ve just emerged from a slimy cocoon. Call ahead to make a reservation.
Must be 21 or older.

Milwaukee Boat Line
Passengers on the Iroquois, Vista King, and Voyageur cruise ships have passed under century-old raising bridges and laid eyes on history-rich chunks of Milwaukee skyline. However, they've also sat under squadrons of F-18s performing barrel rolls over Lake Michigan. Licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard to perform tours and charters on the lake, Jake Chianelli and his captains offer their passengers a unique perspective on the city's waterside events. They also partner with the nonprofit organization Historic Milwaukee by using their trained docents to lead history tours, which include facts and anecdotes from the arrival of the first fur traders up to modern day.
With kitchen facilities and a full bar on board, each of the three double-decked ships are equipped for tours as well as a range of corporate events, wedding-rehearsal dinners, and Moby Dick-themed improv shows. Climate-controlled lower decks give passengers shelter in all weather, and open upper decks house a stage space where local indie-rock bands play during a summer concert series.
