Our traditional tour boats include a large paddle wheel in the back, allowing you and friends to pedal together as you sail to your favorite brewpubs and taverns. Worried about getting paddle fatigue? No problem! Our tour boats come with a motor, in case you or your guests need a break!

Guests will sit comfortably at a large tabletop bar located in the center of the boat. Your individual pedals will be nestled directly under your seat, ready for you to start paddling to your next destination. We also offer a cooler stocked with ice on board to store all of your tasty beverages and snacks for the trip ahead!
