What is Paddle Pub and what included in the price?
We create unique outdoor memorable experiences that often become tradition!
Get together with friends and family, birthday celebrations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, team builders, company outings, date nights, retirement parties, themed nights out – the possibilities are endless!
The price includes a two hour rental, and the Paddle Pub Experience. You’ll meet your US Coast Guard Licensed Captain, and your party host who will do everything in their power to ensure your party has the time of their lives! Feel free to save a few bucks and bring your own beverages. We’ll have coolers filled with ice to keep your drinks cold, and a clean restroom aboard for when the drinks pile up! There are 12 pedaling stations that power the huge paddle wheel in the back of the boat which we will use to make our way into the bay. Your host will get some music and party games going if you’d like until we reach our brief pitstop (based on water conditions) which is always a bit of a fun surprise! We also have a front lounge/dancing area, a bumping sound system to sync up your tunes, and some party lights should you Paddle Pub at night! It will be a memory or in some cases a partial memory, but either way, your host will be sure to snap some great pics to last a lifetime!!!
Additional Add-On Packages are available for pre-purchased local beverages, VIP reservation before your tour at Dublin Deck, professional DJ, or our celebrity party host, “B-Lashes”. Please call or text us at 631-778-1433 for additional pricing and availability.
Is there a bathroom onboard the Paddle Pub?
Yes, there is a bathroom! It has an open ceiling, so please keep it reserved for #1s only. Most often we can make a pit stop for any #2 cases.
Where do we board the Paddle Pub?
Can we drink onboard the Paddle Pub?
You may, as long as you follow our rules and federal regulations. We provide ample cooler space and ice. Passengers can provide their own alcohol and beverages. Absolutely no glass is permitted onboard (even if the glass only stays in the ice chest). Opened alcoholic beverages must remain onboard at all times. No open containers are allowed to leave the boat. No parking lot pre-games or post-games are allowed, this is strictly enforced by ground security.
Can we get off and swim during the tour?
We do make a pit-stop off at Corey Beach during beach season, so as long as the conditions permit, your welcome to jump in! Once in a blue moon, your feet may get wet, but 99 out of 100 times you will not get wet during the Paddle Pub experience. We are working on an experience where swimming would be allowed directly off the boat.
Is it hard to pedal on the Paddle Pub?
We keep it light and fun and it’s entirely your choice. Guests will take turns pedaling, pedal at their leisure, or hang out and sit elsewhere on the boat when not pedaling. 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 too!!!
Can we eat onboard the Paddle Pub?
Yes, you can! Food is allowed onboard the Paddle Pub. During the week you can place To-Go food and drink orders from Dublin Deck and bring it right onboard! We often make a pit stop at Island View along your tour, where you can purchase common convenience mart snacks, icees, ice creams, and additional alcoholic and non-alcoholic canned or plastic contained beverages.
What if it rains?
Paddle Pub operates rain or shine! If it is going to rain, we recommend bringing rain jackets and/or ponchos. It’s still a lot of fun – and we turn it into an adventure with our rain playlist ready to go! Captains only cancel tours if there are unsafe conditions, like high speed winds, thunder, or lightning, in which case you will receive a full store credit to be used on a future date or your credit can be converted into gift cards.
Are passengers under the age of 21 allowed onboard?
Yes, but you must reserve a private boat. All minors under the age of 21 will receive wristbands for each hand that they must wear during the entire duration of the trip and cannot consume any alcoholic beverages while onboard. If there are any passengers under the age of 21, there must be at least one parent or guardian over the age of 25 for every 4 minors onboard. The minimum age to ride the Paddle Pub is 10. If there are any minors caught drinking aboard the Paddle Pub, the Paddle Pub experience will be ended immediately with no refund and no future credit given.
How many passengers can fit on the Paddle Pub?
Groups of up to 26 passengers can go on the Paddle Pub. There are 12 pedaling seats, standing room, a dance area, and a front lounge where guests can sprawl out. Groups as small as 2 can book individual tickets for our public mixer tours, which often turns into your new friends group for the rest of the summer!
Is there a weight limit for passengers?
Yes. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the vessel and the activity, passengers over 350 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 outside the 7 day reschedule/cancellation time frame outlined in your confirmation email to receive your full credit for a future date.
