What You'll Get

Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry, due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a 90-minute sailing tour for two people from Scovare Expeditions, located at Willamette Park (up to a $120 value, depending on the day of the week).

Grab a partner, best friend, or pet crash-test dummy to fill the second spot on your cruise aboard the Scovare II, a 26-foot-long yacht with two private cabins. The boat holds two to six passengers, keeping the company and the experience intimate. Kick back as the captained vessel coasts down the vibrant Willamette River and historic Holgate Channel, all the while snapping spectacular city riverfront views with your eye cameras. The run concludes with an exhilarating run up the west side of Ross Island and the south waterfront, ensuring passengers are not indefinitely trapped on a Möbius strip.

Weekend and weekday cruise options (valued at $40 per person Monday–Thursday and $60 per person Friday–Sunday) are offered throughout the day; early birds can hop on a 7 a.m. or 9 a.m. coffee cruise and midday mariners can take an afternoon cruise. For those preferring the moon to the sun, the 7:30 p.m. sunset sail and 9 p.m. moonlight cruise are also available. A full crew services each sailing adventure, and complimentary soft drinks are served onboard, eradicating the need to bring astronaut packets full of Tang.

Mention your Groupon ID when calling to reserve your tour. Tours are subject to availability.

  • I just took my first sail with Scovare and it won't be my last…the scenery lovely and service fantastic. You can help with the sailing if you want, or just sit back and relax. – HollyQueen
  • Portland is best seen from the water & Scovare offers a comfortable & fun vantage point. – geekling
