We had a great time celebrating my husband’s birthday on Cycleboat! The captain was very knowledgeable about Boston’s history and attractions.

My kids (13 and 15) and I rented Kayaks here to take on the Charles River. My daughter had a single and my son and I shared one. It was so easy to get to, very chill vibe, and was great to be on the water. Perfect experience with teens! We rode Bluebikes there and back from the Boston Public Garden area where our hotel was. Loved this!

Paddled up the Charles from the historic boathouse in Auburndale in 3 kayaks with friends - just gorgeous. The happiest way to spend a day - especially in covid. The nicest and helpful staff I've ever encountered! FUN! and who isn't looking for safe fun?!?

Kayaking the Charles River gives you a whole other perspective from which to view the skylines of Boston and Cambridge. We went with our 13 and 9 year old and all of us rented our own kayaks. The 9 year old did great in his own. On the way back in my husband towed him in because the river was getting a little busy with a sailboat class. We could have easily spent the day out on the water.

This 1.5 hour cycle boat was a blast. Intimate atmosphere on the boat with comfy bike seats. Boat only has seats 16. We pedaled lightly here and there. You don’t have to go all out like you are at a soul cycle class. We just relaxed and chatted with other guests. Staff is very friendly. We brought our own wine and snacks on the boat. I will definitely go again the next time I have out of town guests.
