You will go past the historical harbor and make your way to the Castaway Island (A.K.A Christmas Tree), and pass the sand bar to see the wildlife in the low areas around the island. Your on the water on your bike by yourself or on a tandem with a friend. Our tandems are side by side. Your guide will be your photographer so you only have to enjoy the moment. This is a once in a lifetime experience that very few can do, because of the limited numbers of availability and times on the island. You become a instant Social Media star from passing by boats. Once on the Island your guide will explain some of the history behind the island and walk you around to see a close up of Sunset Key and the wreck right off the shore. If you would like you can snorkel the waters for a short time and see mother natures underwater wonders.

The hydrobiking was easier than I thought it might be. A very enjoyable ride to and from Christmas Island, walked around the island and learned a lot from our guide Trey. Was a unique experience that I really enjoyed.

Hydro cycle Experience was as enjoyable as advertised. Good value. It was a relaxing , leisurely pedal to Christmas Tree Island with a lovely mini history of the area. Memorable tour for our group of 6 friends.

The island was essentially a camp for artistic individuals who want to express “simple living”. Not really what we expected for the kids to see.

The whole experience was amazing! We got to see a whole bunch of things from dolphins to a whole separate island with the cutest local dog. We were greeted with amazing hospitality and dad jokes haha. I totally recommend this experience especially for the price. 10/10
