What You'll Get
Learning to sail unlocks many nautical perks, bestowing students with stylish windblown hair, the ability to talk to clams, and the legal right to officiate weddings while dressed as Aquaman. Reap the boating benefits with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get an Introduction to Sailing lesson at Sailing Ventures in South Lake Tahoe (a $140 value).
Sailing Ventures' certified sailing instructors and USCG-licensed captains help beginner boaters get their sea legs during two-hour Introduction to Sailing lessons. Cast stress ashore and enjoy a scenic mountain-framed float around Lake Tahoe's southwest corner, an area whose open, clear waters are conducive to honing newly learned maneuvers or searching the depths for Moby Dick. Under expert guidance, seafaring students can take turns steering at the helms and trimming the sails, or kick back for a sun-dappled pleasure cruise. Each class is capped at six passengers, ensuring that all students will get plenty of personal attention, instruction, and pieces of the captain's birthday cake. Lessons are scheduled based on availability and student interest, so Groupon holders are encouraged to book in advance for the best selection.

About Sailing Ventures
At 6,200 feet above sea level, Sailing Ventures' certified captains lead small groups into Lake Tahoe's waters, teaching them the skills needed to navigate their own aquatic adventures. The instructors can ferry students from beginner to advanced levels, with lessons catered to everyone from families to seasoned sailors wanting to make practical use of their anchor tattoos. Alternatively, the crew charters yachts into the lake, leaving passengers to enjoy the scenery.
Carved by glaciers, Lake Tahoe's bays and coastline set the perfect backdrop for Sailing Ventures' expeditions. Snow-capped mountains and dense forests paint the horizon as boats float atop waters clearer than the windows at a dermatologist's office.
