    Duffy Electric Boat to Explore Seattle Waterways

    My son wanted to be on the water for his 15th birthday party and after looking at a variety of options we chose this boat and are so glad that we did. The owner was super easy to work and communicate with. The Craft was pleasant to be in and easy to use. There was plenty of space for the 7 of us and everyone had a great time. It was a great day on the water!

    18.5FT SKI BOAT $150 AN HOUR UP TO 8 PEOPLE!

    In a tough year- this day out on the water to celebrate my daughters birthday was the antidote we needed. The boat location was great - super easy access and clear and simple directions from Chris who was very kind about our late arrival. Definitely recommend for a fun day out on the water. The tubing was great!
