Please book by phone or online. Contact info:
Tom's Landing 78 Ricker Ave Santa Rosa Beach (Point Washington area just north of Hwy 98). From Hwy 98 and the intersection of Hwy 331 go east (towards Panama City) to the next light and turn left onto Bay Drive. Take Bay drive about one mile to Ricker Ave and turn left. Emerald Coast Hydrobikes is the first driveway on the right.
In short, wear whatever is comfortable and weather appropriate. Shoes, flops or bare feet are all acceptable. Conditions can change quickly so a hat, sunglasses, long sleeves or other weather protection should be considered. Layers are always a good idea and there is room in the console to store everything you need. Also, keep in mind that Hydrobikes have a chain just like a land bike so please don't wear anything that is overly loose below your shins as it could get caught in the chain. In most cases, you will not get wet unless you choose to so bathing suits are optional. Hydrobikes are stable and easy to jump off of and climb back onto. This makes swimming a fun option.

Emerald Coast Hydrobikes has sunscreen, dry bags, sunglass leashes and other items available for purchase but we do not have a store onsite so please make your order in advance and we will have your items ready for you at the dock.

Hydrobiking is a popular way to enjoy an adventure on the water and fun for all ages. Hydrobikes are quiet and environmentally friendly pedal powered watercraft. Biking on water is easy for everyone on a stable craft made to stay upright in almost any condition. 

For kids not quite tall enough for pedalling the hydrobike (need to be nearly 5 feet tall), a tandem bike can be attached to parent bike. For smaller children, please discuss with Emerald Coast Hydrobikes.

Emerald Coast Hydrobikes are available for daily rentals at Tom's Landing. Call Emerald Coast Hydrobikes to arrange delivery to you and take them out for a spin on the Gulf, the Bay, Western Lake and other beautiful local dune lakes or springs.
