Excellent family activity. Far exceeded our expectations. Staff was awesome. Boat is spacious, comfortable, clean and safe. Would love to do it again!

Lots of rules, paperwork and waivers to sign, over board on that! Additional ridiculous $5 fee paid upon arrival. No parking. Behind an office park/building which charged us $10 to park for 1.5 hours. Fun activity though

It was delightful from the beginning, when the front counter person who greeted and processed us, to the last interaction of returning the boat. Ivan, Dock Master, explained everything needed (clearly and easily) to have an enjoyable experience. He was friendly, courteous, efficient and very personable. His people-skills are exceptional. We look forward to doing this again...and again...and again!

The boats had been recently updated, refurbished, and were very clean. REASONABLE rental rates and a GREAT entertainment for solo adult, couples or more.

We rented a Duffy boat for 90 min. 2 adults and 3 kids ages 15, 10 and 4 and they all loved it. It was a great time! Staff was friendly and fun!

Our boat was definitely a "no frills" one that looked like it was on its last legs but it got us around. The engine was much noisier than boats I've driven before so I wound up driving very slowly so that I could hear my friends and join in the conversation. I liked the large plastic maps of the Bay we used last year better than the one we had to download on our phones as that was much harder to manipulate while driving. Despite these things, we always have a great time and really enjoy our annual Duffy boat ride.

We really enjoyed out time on the electric boat rentals. Ease of booking and the staff was really helpful in helping us navigating the marina and operating the boat.
