Without boats, the only way for seafarers to conquer a large body of water is with a straw. Sightsee among wave watchers with today's Groupon: for $16, you get two adult tickets to a two-hour sightseeing tour of Duluth and Superior Harbor from Vista Fleet (up to a $32 value), located on the harbor side of the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. Children under age 10 are admitted free with an adult ticket purchase.
Vista Fleet launches numerous yachtfuls of sightseers on a scenic, informative tour that navigates the eye-inspiring waters of Duluth and Superior Harbor, known as one of the nation's top freshwater ports. During the course of the two-hour cruise, day-shippers hark to the gregarious tour guide, who enlightens passengers on a range of topics, from harbor history to the lake's science and ecology. Guests can also experience a panoramic view of the skyline without having to construct a diorama from a shoebox, moss, and glitter. Vista Fleet's yacht-style cruisers, manned by Coast Guard–licensed captains, are decked out with interior weather control and open-air observation decks. Click here to view the tour's schedule.
Over the past five-plus decades, Vista Fleet has entertained some six million passengers from all around the world. Today, the family-owned company sets sail on a pair of luxurious vessels: the Vista Star and the Vista Queen. After their early-morning Pilates classes, the two ships carry passengers across Lake Superior during sightseeing tours, dinner parties, and twilight cruises. All the while, Vista Fleet's staff members liven up the journeys with a mix of entertaining facts and games. They also point out iconic landmarks passing by, such as the Aerial Lift Bridge and the historic Canal Park.
