    Duffy Electric Boat to Explore Seattle Waterways

    Phenomenal boating experience in Seattle! The Duffy is a great way to see Lake Union and very easy to get to. Joshua’s boat is in great condition, clean and has everything you need for relaxing afternoon on the water. Joshua was very communicative. Thanks again!

    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!

    Scott and Tracy were superb in their service. I appreciated the detailed info leading up to the cruise. They were fun and great hosts the day of the event and afterwards they helped make sure everyone had everything when leaving the boat. I highly recommend.

    I rented Tracy and Scott’s boat to host a corporate team outing and it exceeded everyone’s expectations. I was a little hesitant renting from this site as it was new for me. Wow, I’m glad I did! The boat was incredible, they were very safe and professional with the right amount of fun :) The boat had speakers throughout so we were able to keep the music going. There were multiple seating areas where we had different drinks/food/games set to. It was perfect! My colleagues raved for days about how much fun they had. I would highly recommend Tracy and Scott and can’t wait to rent from them again in the future. Thank you Tracy and Scott for a wonderful time!
