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.

During each 2.5-hour weeknight dinner cruise, participants climb aboard a 50-foot yacht and slip past the city skyline along the Willamette River. Cruises of six or ten people will sail as a private group, and groups of two or four will be placed in a group of no more than ten to twelve people. Newport Seafood Grill caters the BYOB meal, for which passengers choose one of the following entrées: Willamette Valley smoked salmon, baja-style fish tacos, a half-pound double cheeseburger, vegetarian lasagna, or a grilled chicken club sandwich. All meals include a house salad, pie, and coffee or lemonade. Cruises take place on Wednesday evenings and select Sundays. More days may be added based on demand.
Scovare Expeditions Inc.
With more than 25 years of maritime experience, Shane St. Clair captains Scovare Expeditions' fleet of sailboats, unveiling the windblown channels of the Willamette River to budding sailors and sightseeing passengers. During sailing tours, passengers can bob across the river while taking in the views of the volcanic caldera of Elk Rock Island or feast on three-course meals as the sails fill up with wind like a balloon ruining its dinner. A new Cape Cod Catboat available for charter takes tours, classes, and small dinners on a glide, and a sleek Aquarius sailboat keeps guests boating in style. Those interested in learning the ropes can sign up for sailing lessons, where savvy instructors teach novices how to command the helm, guide the lines, and barter with miserly seagulls.
