Yachts add a touch of luxury to water transport that has yet to be matched by diamond-studded dinghies and caviar-powered jet skis. Sail in style with today's Groupon-exclusive deal: for $99, you get a two-hour yacht cruise plus a glass of wine from the USS Sequoia Presidential Yacht (a $250 value). The Sequoia departs from the Gangplank Marina. Choose from 15 time slots. This is the first time that the Presidential Private Yacht has ever sold individual tickets; normally, passengers must rent out the entire yacht.

Deemed the "Rolls Royce of Yachts" by the History Channel, the 104-foot USS Sequoia presidential yacht has entertained America's heads of state ever since Herbert Hoover boarded the royally appointed vessel. Built in 1925, the Trumpy-designed yacht transports passengers on a two-hour voyage of the Potomac River that delivers eye-catching views of the Washington Monument and stunning vistas of the city unmarred by the craters from its many mole-man invasions. Voyagers can sip a glass of wine and relax on the top deck in original teak deck chairs that once cozened the keisters of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

Below decks, explore the National Historic Landmark's collection of presidential photographs and original memorabilia, or ogle the piano near the aft salon on which Nixon composed his resignation jingle. No presidential footstep-following is complete without reeling in the sights on the rear fish deck where FDR would cast his line, or recapturing the celebratory spirit of JFK's final birthday party, which he celebrated with close friends aboard the stately wooden vessel.
