We wanted to get on the Water for a team meeting to see the city, and this was a relaxing, fun way to do it and get a bit of exercise. Tim and Chris were great crew.

This is the 2nd time I’ve worked with Paddle Tavern & used the Duffy boat, specifically. I LOVE the boat. The staff is great. The experience is even better. It’s great value as well.
