I Hope I Don't Need This Phrase

Pippi has been teaching herself some German with an old German phrase book I have. It's a nice little pocket-sized book with some very handy phrases organized by category: Greetings, Weather, Emergencies, Eating and Drinking.

Handy phrases include:
Es gibt viel Nebel (there's a lot of fog)
Ich habe Hunger (I'm hungry)
Der Mann hat mir mein Geld gestolhen! (That man stole my money!)

And then there's this one.:
Es ist zu viel Wasser im Boot (There's too much water in the boat.)

That would be fine in the emergency section - only this phrase is under "Sightseeing." What kind of sightseeing tours do they run over there?
