Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass local waterways with today’s Groupon: for $120, you get a four-hour sailing excursion on the Caribbean Spirit with access to a variety of aquatic activities and an open bar from Tropical Sailing on Biscayne Boulevard (a $260 value).
Glide across Biscayne Bay’s sibilant waves on the Caribbean Spirit, a 78-foot sailing catamaran that houses an array of watery pastimes. After weighing anchor at the Key Biscayne Sandbar, Tropical Sailing's naturally buoyant boatsmen unpack apparatus for an array of aquatic endeavors, including parasailing, snorkeling, and jet skiing. Take advantage of the sea air's lower gravity by bouncing upon an inflatable water trampoline, or strap on a snorkel and challenge steely nerved fish to staring contests.
Sea-goers can swap stories at the Caribbean Spirit's open bar, quaffing selections of beer and wine while recapping thrilling rides or debating the feasibility of game shows for dolphins. Panoramic viewpoints throughout the cruise allow sightseeing sailors to drink in a number of picturesque vistas, from the urban grandeur of downtown Miami to the elegant estates of Nixon Harbor.
Passengers should bring sunscreen and a towel and arrive 30 minutes before departure.
