Be Your Own Captain

No boating license required.


Duffy party boat rental is the perfect way to enjoy the day or an afternoon with your friends and family, cruising the calm waters of Mission Bay. Mission Bay has several great places to tie up and dine or you may bring your own assortment of food and beverages on-board. The boat is as easy as driving a golf cart and goes 5mph. You have to be 21 years old to drive a Duffy Boat and have valid identification. We will go over how to drive the boat before you depart.

Boat rentals range from 90 minutes to 3 hours and can accommodate up to 11-12 adults comfortably.

Each Duffy boat has a full canopy top, full window enclosures, built-in cooler and Stereo with Bluetooth, so don’t forget to bring along your favorite music. You may also bring your own assortment of food and beverages onboard.


PLEASE NOTE: For the safety of your passengers, no glassware is allowed on the boats. However, you may bring bottles. In addition, while we do love your furry friends, we do have a strict No Pet Policy on Duffy Boats. Thank you for your understanding.​
