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 water activities on the Potomac with keeping the river clean, so they decided it was time to bring the first Cycleboat to DC!
The Potomac Paddle Pub is the first and only 16-passenger pedal boat booze cruise in DC. 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, reunions or whatever excuse you want to use to have a good time! We empower you to determine the type of boat tour experience that you want. All cruises are BYOB (and bring your own food), and passengers can enjoy one another’s company in an intimate bar setting out on the Potomac!
