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.

What are the terms and cancellation policy?

Paddle Pub and Trolley Pub now offer trip insurance, which will allow you flexibility in the case your plans change, or if the tour needs to be canceled due to the inclement weather.

Trip insurance will also allow you to receive a full refund in the event of a Severe Weather Warning from the National Weather Service during the time of your scheduled tour results in a cancellation on our end. You may also voluntarily cancel your tour for any reason up to 7 days prior to your tour for a full refund.

To purchase trip insurance, simply select the add on “Trip Insurance” during checkout. Please note that for mixer tours, you will need to select the number of tickets you would like to insure to cover all the tickets.

Without trip insurance, all sales are final – no exceptions. In the case a tour needs to be canceled on our end in the event of severe weather and you do not have trip insurance, you will receive a credit for a future tour at any TourScale location (Trolley Pub, Paddle Pub, Tiki Pub) in the country. Currently, we have tours in over 30 cities across the US.

– Extreme intoxication –

There is an automatic $100 charge to the credit card used for the reservation if you or someone in your party gets sick on the boat. This is a big party foul.
