Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

Riverfront Canal Cruises

Riverfront Canal Cruises traces Richmond's roots back to George Washington, who first lobbied the Virginia General Assembly to create the city's canal system as a means of linking the coast to trade opportunities in the west. In 40-minute tours, covered boats glide down the James River and Kanawha Canal, granting passengers an up-close view of the waterways without having to mount a webcam on a duck. Throughout the trip, guides share old stories about the canal and the Canal Walk, broadening guests' knowledge of the area's rich heritage.

A nice but short tour. Can be hot in the middle of the day. Wear a hat!
