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.
Choose Between Two Options
- $55 for a 90-minute Sunset Sail or City Lights cruise for two (a $118 value)
- $88 for a three-hour Lake Oswego cruise for two (a $176 value)
During each 90-minute Sunset Sail or City Lights cruise, groups of two to six participants sail past the city skyline and expensive floating homes along the Willamette River. During three-hour Lake Oswego cruises, two to six explorers head south to view multi-million-dollar homes and snap pictures of the volcanic Calderas and Elk Rock Island. Departing Sundays and some Fridays at 11 a.m., the tour will stop at Lake Oswego for an hour so that sailors can walk around or enjoy lunch in town.
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.
