What is a hydrobike?

Hydrobike is the worldwide premier water bike. The Hydrobike is the ultimate in human powered watercraft. With little effort you can cruise at 5 miles per hour. They can easily be ridden in even the windiest and waviest conditions. They are virtually impossible to tip over and they are GREAT for fishing.

 

What kind of clothing should I wear, will I get wet?

Any comfortable clothing, maybe a light jacket for cooler days. You will not get wet unless you choose to. 

 

What time of day is best to Hydrobike?

Mornings are the calmest time on the water with little wind, while afternoons have more onshore winds making it harder to ride. If it is too windy, we may limit the rental area or cancel rentals altogether.

Unfortunately, weather conditions vary and it is sometimes impossible to predict how the weather will be until the day-of or the day before your rental reservation. Calling us directly will give you the most up to date information. 

 

How stable is it?

Very stable, it will not tip over when the rider is standing or sitting on the side-decks. It's also stable in high waves and swells.

 

Is there a weight limit?

Yes, the weight limit is 300 lbs.

 

Can children ride them?

Most children ages 10 and up are able to ride themselves, as long as they are able to reach the pedals. 

 

How close can I get to wildlife?

Five boat lengths is best to avoid disturbing animals.  It is illegal to disturb, chase, touch or feed marine mammals who are protected by Federal Law and you may be fined if reported.
