A new and popular attraction is the 90-minute river tour on the Sac Brew Boat. Bring your own alcohol and enjoy beautiful lakefront views and time with colleagues or friends on a 30-foot-long boat with a large rear paddle. The Brew Boat seats a maximum of sixteen individuals under a shade canopy. Participate by sitting in one of the ten pedal stations, surrounding the center bar, or sit back and relax in one of the five lounge seats. While pedaling is encouraged and contributes to the experience, the Brew Boat is equipped with a 10-horsepower electric motor to assist with navigation. Each tour provides a friendly, licensed boat captain and deck-hand, an ice-stocked cooler for beverages, and an ice water cooler.
