Tour the Milwaukee River and see the city from a whole new perspective. Whether you’re just visiting Milwaukee, recently moved, or have lived here your entire life – you’re guaranteed to walk away from a Duffy boat rental with a new appreciation for our city and for the Milwaukee River.
Our Duffy Boat rentals run daily – we launch from the Cooperage Building (home of the Boone & Crocket patio bar and the Taco Moto food trucks). We also have staff at the Harp docks to catch you if you want to make a pit stop there! Choose your rental duration, 90 minutes. 2 hours or 2.5 hours , but we do allow for additional time to be added to the tours. .
*Renters just need to be 25 – please note if born after Jan 1st, 1989 or later, you need a boaters safety license, which can be done online right HERE.,*
Boats can fit up to 12 people, but are still intimate and fun for smaller groups too. Small groups welcome, rentals are priced per person, 4 person minimum, 12 person maximum.
