CYCLE ON THE SWAN RIVER IN THE CITY!


See the City like you've never seen it before! The Perth City Skyline Pedal is the Perth Waterbike Co's most popular ride, and for good reason.  Departing from South Perth next to the Narrows Bridge, you will glide along the City foreshore and right into Elizabeth Quay for a spectacular view of the City  and some iconic photo opportunities.


Sit back, relax and take in the stunning views of the City Skyline South Perth and Kings Park, as you glide along the Swan on a waterbike.  A new and unique perspective and and exciting new water adventure for most ages and
abilities.


 You'll see that Perth is best viewed from the water and that riding a waterbike gives you an awesome vantage point to enjoy the city
skyline.

Guided Waterbike rides are small, exclusive groups, with a privateguide.  Personalised attention makes for a truly unique water adventure.

We have access to some amazing spots on City waters and for that reason all our rides are guided. Our guide is well skilled at being as discreet or interactive as you like.  We pride ourselves on providing an experience tailored to our client's needs.



Safe, stable and incredibly easy to use, waterbikes are a whole lot of fun.  Cruising at a leisurely pace, there's plenty of time to take in the
incredible views, stop for some iconic photos, and learn a thing or two along the way (if you feel inclined)

There's also the opportunity to go really fast if you want to!

Regular stops to take in the sites and if you like, ask us questions  about the landmarks, history, and flora and fauna of the beautiful Swan and the virbrant and ever changing City of Perth.  Some FANTASTIC photo opportunities.
