Met up with Tra, Brian's son. Rode the tandem bike across the channel to the Christmas tree island. Learned some highlights about Key West and about the Christmas tree island and its history and inhabitants. We saw some wildlife along the way (stingray and stone crab)! The hydro bikes are very stable and and Tra did a great job navigating us and keeping us safe, even though the channel is active with boats. These things are virtually un-flippable. Your sandals and valuables can be placed in the box on the bike to stay dry. You can experience this in your bathing suit or regular clothes as you stay dry on the bikes. Our feet was the only part of us that got wet after hopping off the bikes by the island. Though, there was time to get in the water, if we wanted to. Keep up the good work, Tra, and thanks for an awesome experience.

Never thought I would ride a bike on the water! definitely a unique experience and seeing Wisteria Island was an unknown perk. thought the adventure was going to be difficult but was way easier than expected !

Great experience! Fun way to get in a bit of exercise, learn alot about the island and see it from a different perspective. Brian (Tra) was super laid back and a great guide.

We went out with Tray, not Brian. Good trip, had a blast, host was knowledgeable and entertaining. Also didn't stop talking which was a bit much as it made fully taking in sights a bit difficult, but it was generally fine as he made up for it in entertainment. What made it not a 5 star despite us tipping as if it was is that out of a 90 minute trip, 30 mins is spent on an island doing literally nothing. I would've preferred a hike if possible, or pedalling out a bit further, or even coming back early so as to have those 30 mins back. Very solid otherwise and I'm sure these guys will be successful in the long term as it's a fun way of touring the local waters.

We had a great time on the bikes. It was much easier than we anticipated and the bikes were completely stable in the water. I would definitely book again and recommend to others.
