Long Beach’s Pastime: Duffy Boats

By Marina Hernandez


As iconic to Long Beach as the cobalt blue Walter Pyramid are the open-air Duffy Boats which speckle Alamitos Bay in the summer. If you haven’t rented a Duffy recently, or at all, consider making it a priority this summer. Spend some outdoor leisure time navigating Naples and carefully slip into Jellyfish Cove to marvel at this year’s moon jellyfish arrival. Rent a duffy by the hour with these local favorites.
