I’m honestly speechless. This company was amazing from start to finish. Customer service was so responsive in helping me with all of my questions. They made the whole process seamless. I had a party of 24 people for the paddle boat and the crew was phenomenal! Ryan was our party host who went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. The other crew members did an amazing job as well and the captain was great! Nothing short of a good time and nothing but absolutely amazing things to say about this company and its hard workers. Book this boat. You will NOT regret it! Thank you for making my birthday one for the books!!

Had a great time with friends on the boat! A group of us went for our friend’s birthday and ended up having the whole boat to ourselves. Cal and Chris made our experience so much more fun! Definitely would come back on next time we’re down here.

Is there a bathroom onboard?

Yes, there is a bathroom!

Where do we board the Paddle Pub?

We meet at the public dock located in the Milford Boat Ramp parking lot, near end of Shipyard Lane (5-10 minute walk from parking). Free parking is located at Fowler Park at 1 Shipyard Lane, Milford, CT 06460, or other Public Parking lots located around town. Please note that some spots in the Fowler Field lots are for Milford residents only and there is no parking in the boat ramp parking lot!! Please wait on land, near the kayak racks, for our crew members to check you in and escort you to the boat.

Can we drink on board?

You may, but you have to follow the rules. No glass or hard liquor (even if the glass only stays in the ice chest). All alcohol is BYOB – bring your favorite canned beer, cider, seltzer, and wine.  Alcoholic beverages must remain on board at all times. Traditionally ice is not needed but you are more than welcome to bring your own for the built-in cooler area at the bar on the Paddle Pub. You are also free to bring food onboard.

Can we get out and swim during the tour?

Unfortunately No, we do not offer a swim tour at this location. 

Isn’t it hard to pedal?

Water tends to be very flat, so it’s not difficult at all.  In fact, the light exercise helps make the experience. Plus, we have an auxiliary motor.  We have had groups of all 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. There is also a fully canopy roof covering the entire vessel should it rain that day.

Do we need to bring coolers? What about ice?

Paddle Pub has a built-in cooler in the bar area. We recommend bringing your own ice.

Can more than 16 people fit on the Paddle Pub?

Yes,  There are 20 available seats, including pedaling and non-pedaling ones. Keep in mind on a private tour every guest above the base fare of 14 passengers is an additional $40.

Are people under the age of 21 allowed on board?

e do offer cruises to riders who are under 21 years of age when accompanied by a guardian. All participants on our public tours must be at least 18 years or older, or be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. The minimum age for private cruises is 5 years old and accompanied by a parent or guardian. If there are any passengers under the age of 18, there must be at least one parent or guardian over the age of 25 for every 4 minors onboard.

 

Children between the ages of 5-12 years must wear USCG approved life vests at all times while on the dock and the vessel. The child’s parent or guardian must provide a children’s USCG approved Type I, Type II or Type III life jacket, appropriate for the age, weight and height of the child (no inflatables, floaties, swimmies, etc).

Is there a weight limit for riders?

Yes.  Unfortunately, due to the nature of the vessels, customers over 300 pounds will not be able to comfortably ride the Paddle Pub.

How do I reschedule/cancel my tour?

BASE FARE TICKETS: Base Fare Tickets have a strict cancellation policy.  NO REFUNDS will be offered.  You can reschedule or convert to store credit up to 7 days before the event.
