Jump on one of our PaddleTap Boats! We have been offering PaddleTap Tours for four years now! We have a range of boats that can hold anywhere from six to 50 people!
We operate two different types of boats. Our standard PaddleTap Boat is the original tour. This is where you paddle the boat (large PaddleWheel in back) with a bar in the middle for you to sit at! You Paddle (Pedal) the boat around Lake Minnetonka or White Bear Lake**NEW FOR 2019**
