Dog-friendly boat ride off the coast of Long Beach
We’ve gone paddleboarding, kayaking, and canoeing with the pups in the past. This weekend we got to try out another form of boating in California with a duffy boat ride!
Our duffy boat rental was with London Boat Rentals in Alamitos Bay, and we couldn’t recommend them more. This rental company only rents duffy boats (electric boats that seat up to 12) and jet skis — and their duffy boats are dog friendly!
You’re allowed to bring your own food and drink, but of course there is no drinking and driving allowed on the boat.
There’s no need for a special license or any previous training to drive the boat. The boat rental operators will simply give you a quick demonstration of how to drive it when you meet them at the dock. With this info and a map of where you’re allowed to drive the boat within the bay, you’re free to sail off into a relaxing afternoon on the waters!
Each duffy boat is also equipped with bluetooth speakers, so you can easily hook up your phone and set the vibe for your trip.
We rented the boat for only 1 hour and it flew by in the blink of an eye. If you’re with a larger group, we’d definitely recommend increasing the amount of time you rent the duffy boat for.
At only $89 an hour, the duffy boats from London Boat Rentals are so worth it. Compared to similar boats you can rent out of Marina Del Rey for anywhere from $125 to $200 per hour, we’d much rather make a short trip to beautiful Long Beach and enjoy Alamitos Bay with the pups!
Huge thanks to @visitlb for setting us up with this awesome experience. Stay tuned for more posts on our weekend in Long Beach!
