What You'll Get


Boat captains must master nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with this Groupon:

Choose from Four Options

  • $62 for a barbecue sail for one on Monday, June 11 at 6 p.m. (a $137 value)
  • $62 for a fireworks sail for one (a $137 value)
  • $62 for a brunch-or-lunch sail for one (a $137 value)
  • $45 for a cocktail-skyline sail for one (a $95 value)

On the evening of June 11, passengers board the tall ship Red Witch for a Robinson's Ribs barbecue feast backdropped by the passing waves of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Alternatively, lake farers can tote along their own eats and beverages and pick the Wednesday or Saturday of their choosing for the fireworks sail, which boasts crystal-clear water views of Navy Pier's glittering pyrotechnics display. For the brunch-or-lunch sail, passengers and daring gremlins bask in the sunshine while munching on a boxed meal from Fox & Obel and washing down bites with a soda or water. The cocktail-skyline tour commences with a 30-minute dockside reception before embarking on a two-hour journey fortified by two glasses of beer or wine for each of-age passenger. All options include a $2 administration fee. See the schedule for a list of upcoming dates and times.

About Tall Ship Red Witch


What looks like a crimson-hulled pirate ship glides into view. The wind picks up, surging into the schooner's 77-foot gaff-rigged sails and speeding the vessel along at 8 knots. Those on shore can just make out the boat's name, Red Witch, and what appear to be passengers raising a drink to the views from ship.

Designed by renowned naval architect John G. Alden and named after the book Wake of the Red Witch—the same story that inspired the film starring John Wayne and Gail Russell—the Coast Guard–licensed ship accommodates up to 49 passengers within its mahogany-over-oak frame. Having sailed waters off Maui and San Diego, the boat is now under the stewardship of Captain Andrew Sadock and his crew who will be glad to autograph cannonballs for each passenger.
