Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as gambling on knife fights or naming a dog a swear word. Float above the law with this Groupon.
$180 for a Two-Hour Private Sailing Trip for Up to Six ($360 Value)
Up to six passengers climb aboard a 36-foot yacht with two private cabins to enjoy a two-hour jaunt Monday–Friday through the Navy Pier–adjacent portion of Lake Michigan. Snacking and sipping on their own food and drink and blaring favorite tunes such as "MMMBop" through the boat’s iPod connector, passengers can sit in the cockpit with the U.S. Coast Guard–certified captain and even try their hand at steering. Trips can be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Aboard SeaBreeze Charter's sailing yachts, passengers slice through Lake Michigan's waves, steered by the steady hand of a United States Coast Guard-certified captain. Also decorated with various racing awards, the captains now helm the yacht during chartered trips, and graciously hands over the wheel when instructing new sailors in the waters near Navy Pier. The vessel itself features two private cabins and a radio with an iPod connector, on which patrons can play classic maritime ballads about the difficulty of untying boating knots. In addition, an on-board life raft and a digital emergency call feature guard the boat against potential mishaps.
