Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry, due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and elusive porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Toronto waterfront cruise from Yankee Lady Yacht Charters (up to a $60 value).
Yankee Lady Yacht Charters eases passengers into their sea legs aboard one of two 115-foot, triple-decked yachts. Groupon users can choose from any of the company’s public/open cruises for 2010. Retrieve your bellbottoms from their commemorative shadow box for Jerry’s Disco Cruise (normally $35, plus taxes), celebrate Canada’s birthday with colourful pyrotechnics on the Canada Day Fireworks Cruise ($55, plus taxes), or laugh at the ant’s pathetic inability to swim while you enjoy outdoor dining on the Sunday Afternoon Picnic Cruise ($50 for adults, plus taxes). When not taking in the grandeur of the Toronto skyline from one of the outdoor decks, passengers can relax in the luxurious interiors of the vessels or perform the life cycle of a minnow through breakdance on the ships’ dance floors.
Each cruise lasts approximately four to five hours, with cash bars and food available. On a Yankee Lady cruise, you can walk on water in your yacht-sized shoes and finally see what all the buoys have been raving about.
Yankee Lady Yacht Charters
From the 360-degree observation deck that crowns both of Yankee Lady Yacht Charters' ships, passengers can look up at the staggering height of the CN Tower or let their gaze drift upon the horizon of Lake Ontario. These two ships—the Yankee Lady III and Yankee Lady IV—boast three floors that accommodate up to 300 party guests as the vessels cruise around Toronto Harbour and the lake. Whether public or private, fetes find passengers digging into buffets at linen-dressed tables and then floating out to the dance floor as a DJ spins tunes. For private occasions, hosts can customize their festivities with casino games, decorations, and song requests.
