Aqua Bike Rental


Looking for a cheap way to have some fun out on the water? Our aqua bikes are the answer! Hop on an aqua bike with your family or friends and enjoy the novelty of pedalling your way around Lake Wanaka.

Our aqua bikes provide fun for all ages! Aqua bikes are a safe way for the whole family to explore the shores of Lake Wanaka, and are far easier to operate and manoeuvre than a normal bike. Because of the large, brightly-coloured wheels, the aqua bikes allow you to sit high above the water and give you the perfect view of Roy’s Bay and the beautiful mountain surroundings.

While there is a low risk that you will get wet, our staff will ensure you are fitted with a lifejacket and provide you with a short safety briefing before you start your voyage.

Aqua bikes have space for two passengers, but can also be enjoyed solo. Race your friends along the shoreline, or experience the novelty of pedalling out to explore the lake with your family.

If you are looking for a spontaneous activity that is fun for everyone, this is for you!
