So fun!

We had a fantastic time on this little donut! It was a little tricky to steer at first, but you do get the hang of it! They provided ice and a Bluetooth speaker which was a plus! We’ll definitely do that again! Thank you!

Fun for a group
Aug 2019
It was a lot of fun to explore the Milwaukee River on the donut boat. There is no question that it is pricey, but if you get a group together it's not so bad. It was easy to chat and pass around snacks on the round boat, and it was easy enough to drive. The large cooler in the middle was loaded with ice and was ready for us to stash our drinks. It ended up not being an issue for us but the photo shows an umbrella over the boat and then we were told there wasn't one. Just FYI.

Fabulous Customer Service - Total Blast!
Jul 2019 • Friends
We went for my Husband’s Birthday and it was a total blast. They were super easy to drive, and a great way to see the city by water. Fit 10! Our representative went out his his way for us. So kind and so helpful. He had a cooler ready for us, a speaker for music and even got us sunscreen as we forgot it! He was funny and make the day even better! Really cool we could drive without a captain. This is a total summer bucket list item - check it out!!!

Great way to enjoy the river
Aug 2019
Mike was great to work with in making arrangements ...friendly, informative, and helpful. He had everything set up for us when we arrived on the scheduled date. The boat was clean and dry (it had rained earlier) and stocked with ice for our beverages. And, again, Mike was friendly and helpful in giving us instructions for operating the donut (which was super simple). It was such a relaxing but fun way to go down the river! I would definitely recommend this as a "must do" for travelers. I highly recommend it.

Great view of Milwaukee and easy on; easy off
Aug 2019
The staff was so friendly and the booking was so easy. Nothing to think about to pilot the boat so we all could enjoy the ride. We could see parts of Milwaukee that we would have missed otherwise. Perfect evening. Lots of laughs.

Donut fun times
Aug 2019 • Friends
We had a blast on the donut. The 2 hours flew by. We hired a captain so that we could relax and enjoy the ride. Our captain, Ryan did a spectacular job. He was courteous, friendly, respectful and made the experience extra special.
I’d definitely recommend rounding up some fun couples, grab some adult beverages and snacks and hit the donut.
Fun times!!!

Best experience on the river
Aug 2019 • Friends
The donut boats are so much fun! Everyone who saw us cruising down the river wanted to know where to rent one for themselves. Easy to drive, easy to converse with everyone on the boat, fun to do “donuts” on the river. We had to push back our tour by 30 mins due to rain, which I appreciated so we didn’t have to cancel or reschedule. Overall, our two-hour cruise was absolutely fantastic. Can’t wait to go again.
