Meet the Crew!
Co-founders Jack Maher and Jack Walten were both born and raised in Arlington, VA and graduated from Yorktown High School. The Jacks became best buds at the age of two and grew up exploring the banks of the Potomac River. The eco-friendly design of the Cycleboat provides the perfect platform to combine their love of fun on the water with keeping the Potomac clean, so they decided it was time to bring the first Cycleboat to DC!
The Potomac Paddle Pub is DC’s first and only 15-passenger pedal boat. The boat is propelled by a 6-foot paddle wheel that is powered by our passengers pedaling in tandem (don’t worry – we also have a motor to help out as needed). It’s the perfect platform for get-togethers with friends, family, and colleagues or for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings or whatever excuse you want to use to have a good time! We empower you to determine the type of bar experience that you want. All journeys are BYOB (and bring your own food), and passengers can enjoy one another’s company in an intimate bar setting.
