Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the ocean, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man's triumphs with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a sightseeing cruise, haunted history cruise, or game-day water-taxi ride for two from NavCal River Rides (up to a $36 value).

NavCal River Rides' canopied boat sends visitors floating down the picturesque Tennessee River, acquainting them with the history and hijinks of steamboat captains and Civil War veterans. The seasoned skipper channels the spirit of Samuel Clemens, spinning family-friendly yarns and sharing 19th-century mustache-combing tips during a 90-minute cruise aboard a craft equipped with a restroom and $1 refreshments. Additionally, youngsters can hone their navigation skills while steering the vessel on the way past the University of Tennessee Knoxville’s famed “body farm” forensic-anthropology center. On select dates, Ms. Drusilla hops aboard to divulge the spookier details of the river’s history during a 45-minute haunted history tour that regales guests with frightening tales of ghostly barges and terrifying legends of a beast that is both cat and fish. NavCal also provides river-taxi cruises to home football games that depart from South Knoxville Bridge, The Landings Riverfront Apartments, and River Towne Condominiums.
