Tami Reinhart owns and operates Emerald Coast Hydrobikes in Santa Rosa Beach. She's excited about plans for the weekly cruise. She says, "This cruise is easy, fun and a perfect way for almost anyone to experience a sample of all that the Choctawhatchee Bay has to offer."
Tami adds, "As much as we love to share outdoor experiences with people, I have to confess that this particular trip was inspired by The Bay's Chicken and Waffles. They are that good. Throw in some fresh air, water and a view...it just doesn't get any better".
Tom's Landing is located at 78 Ricker Avenue in Point Washington. From Hwy 98 and Hwy 331 go East to the next light (County Hwy 283 - Bay Drive). Turn left and go north to Ricker Avenue. Turn left and take the first driveway on the right.
For kids not quite tall enough for pedalling the hydrobike (needs to be nearly 5 feet tall), a tandem bike can be attached to parent. For smaller children, please discuss with the super nice folks at Emerald Coast Hydrobikes for recommendations.
