What is the Paddle Pub?
Paddle Pub is a 20-passenger pedal-powered 35-foot pontoon boat with a US Coast Guard Licensed Master Captain behind the wheel. Perfect for being outdoors, getting together with friends and family, birthday celebrations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, team builders, company outings, divorce parties, date nights, retirement parties, themed nights out – the possibilities are endless! You can book a private party or join a public mixer tour. There is a bathroom onboard, bluetooth sound system, nighttime party lights and pedaling stations.
Where do we board the Paddle Pub?
All tours begin and end at our Cycle Party shop, located at 220 SW 3rd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312. Parking can be limited on the weekends so we suggest carpooling or Uber.
Do you make bar stops?
We can not guarantee any bar stops during the tour, but you are welcome to request one and if we are able to accommodate the crew will let you know.
Can we drink on board?
You may, as long as you follow our rules and federal regulations. We provide ample cooler space. All alcohol is BYOB. Alcoholic beverages must remain on board at all times. Bring your own ice!
Can we get out and swim during the tour?
Currently, no. However, we are working on incorporating an optional sandbar (or beach) stop to our tour route. You will most likely not get wet on our tours right now, so you can leave the towels at home for now.
Is it hard to pedal on the Paddle Pub?
The Paddle Pub’s huge paddle wheel is propelled by 100% human pedal power. There are 12 pedaling seats where passengers sit to move the boat. Guests can take turns pedaling, pedal at their leisure, or stand/sit elsewhere on the boat and not have to pedal. We would say it is very light exercise and helps make the experience unique! Plus, don’t tell the rest of your group, but we do have an auxiliary motor which the Captain can kick into gear if you stop pedaling and just want to dance the rest of the time! We have had groups of all ages aboard the Paddle Pub and 70+ seniors pedal just fine. If they can do it, you can do it!!!
What if it rains?
Paddle Pub operates rain or shine! If it’s going to rain, we recommend bringing rain jackets and/or ponchos. It’s still a lot of fun- think of it as an adventure. We only cancel tours if there are unsafe conditions, in which case you will receive a credit or refund.
How many coolers fit on board?
We can fit approximately 3 full-sized coolers on board.
Can more than 20 people fit on the Paddle Pub?
No. The twenty seats include the non-pedaling seat in the back bench.
Are people under the age of 21 allowed on board?
Yes, but they will receive an “X” on each hand and cannot drink while on board. Riders under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present. The minimum age to ride the Paddle Pub is 10.
Is there a weight limit for riders?
Yes. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the vessel and the activity, passengers over 300 pounds will not be able to comfortably ride the Paddle Pub.
How do I reschedule/cancel my tour?
It’s easy! Simply respond to your confirmation email with the date change request. Please ensure that you are within the reschedule/cancellation time frame outlined in your confirmation email.
