A First for the Nation’s Capital

Introducing the newest DC boating experience on the Potomac: the first and only Cycleboat in the nation’s capital! This social, active adventure is the perfect way for friends, families, tourists, and colleagues to take in the sights of some of DC’s most monumental attractions.

Reserve a seat on one of our BYOB booze cruises or reserve the entire boat for a birthday party, bachelor/bachelorette party, corporate outing, or whatever occasion you choose! The Cycleboat seats up to 16 passengers (10 can pedal at once) and tours are 90 minutes long (fear not – we have a bathroom break scheduled halfway through and a motor to help out in case your crew gets tired of pedaling).

Pedal. Pour. Explore.

Passengers sit on comfortable bike seats that belly up to a 10-person mahogany bar as they pedal at their own pace. They can sit or stand while they enjoy monumental views of the city on an intimate cruise with food and beverages of their own choosing. For groups with 10+ passengers, the front of the boat has a furnished lounge area for some group members to hang while their comrades power the journey. Loungers and pedalers can switch places at any time!


Sip and Set Sail

All Cycleboat rides are BYOB (no liquor though – sorry!). We’ll provide the coolers and ice, but come prepared with your favorite beverages and snacks to fill them! And don’t worry about bringing that ever elusive aux chord adapter – the Cycleboat speakers are equipped with Bluetooth so you’ll be ready to rock!


Bike Shorts Optional

You don’t have to be a professional cyclist, or really even a casual cyclist, to thrive on this vessel. Whether you’re a spinning sensation, a causal cyclist or have never before ridden a bike, anyone can enjoy a Cycleboat ride. The whole boat works together in tandem to turn the paddlewheel as our expert captain navigates the boat down the Potomac River. And don’t worry – the Cycleboat has a motor to help out or even take over as needed!
