That's totally fine, we can add or subtract people to your reservation at check in. We will make adjustments to your price at check in. Keep in mind we do have a 4 person minimum (6 person minimum on Saturdays). So if you have less than the minimum at arrival we will charge the minimum rate.

Boats launch from the Cooperage Building Docks, 818 S. Water Street, (Boone and Crockett Cocktail Lounge). Most groups will head north and do the Milwaukee River Loop up to Lakefront Brewery and back.
The manufactures tag line is "as easy to drive as a golf cart". We have found this to be true. Your don't have to be a seasoned skipper to enjoy our Duffy Boats.
BYOB and food allowed, we have a big yeti cooler and provide ice for you. Boats have a sound system that can be connected via Bluetooth, so bring a good playlist.
This is our 4th season and we have realized the perfect amount of time to do the entire Milwaukee River Loop is 90 minutes. It takes 90 minutes to go all the way from our location to the northern point of the Milwaukee River (Lakefront Brewery) or up to the Harp, dock there and make a quick 15 pit stop to grab a round of drinks / bathroom break. We can add time if we have schedule flexibility.
We are very flexible, we want your group to have a good time. The boats have roofs, and the window can be zipped up and down quickly. So light rain isn't a problem. Please cancel at least 3 days in advance. On bad weather days we will connect the morning of to give the renter their choice of refund, rain check, or delay the start time.
Yes, the Milwaukee River has great options. We even have dock space reserved at the Harp for our other boats, the Paddle taverns, so our staff will help land you, and it's in the mid point of the Milwaukee River Lap.
Yes we take our kids out on the Duffy's all the time, we have kids life jackets in all sizes, and kids have a good time.
The Taco Moto Food Truck is on site, just 50 feet from the boat house. If you want to bring tacos on the boat, arrive extra early in case they are super busy, which is often especially on Saturdays. Thrillist Magazine says they are the best tacos in Wisconsin, and we agree
We sell a couple boats our of our fleet at the end of each season. If you want to buy a boat, you can apply 100% of your rental fees towards the purchase. More info here.
