Boaters 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.
$99 for a Two-Hour Chauffeured Cruise for Up to Six on Newport Harbor ($534 Value)
During the two-hour cruise, a captain showcases points of interest—such as main channels and historic sites—on Newport Harbor. Cruises run from 10 a.m. to sunset, allowing passengers to soak up views from the protected deck throughout the day, nibbling on a hors d’oeuvre and sipping on the provided nonalcoholic drinks, or bringing their own alcoholic beverages and food.
Watts on the Harbor Cruises
The dark-blue hulls of Watts on the Harbor Cruises’ boats cut through Newport Harbor’s still waters almost silently thanks to eco-friendly electric motors. On deck, captains point out historic sites to passengers, who may nibble on provided refreshments while relishing vibrant sunsets. To facilitate fun even in inclement weather, the watercrafts are equipped with tall, see-through vinyl panels and overhead awnings.
The captains and crew pride themselves on being detail-oriented, which is why they keep blankets on board and can always spot whether one of their passengers is actually a shark wearing a human mask.
