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 Between Two Options
- $67 for a fireworks cruise for one (a $137 value)
- $67 for a brunch or lunch sail for one with a boxed meal from Fox & Obel with soda or water (a $137 value)<p>
Both options include a $2 administration fee. See the schedule for a list of upcoming dates and times. While the brunch and lunch sails include a boxed lunch and beverage, the fireworks cruise does not.<p>
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.
