What is a CycleBoat?
The Cycleboat is a 30-foot-long catamaran, that is propelled by a large rear paddle which is powered by the pedaling of our riders! We can accommodate up to 16 guests (10 at pedal stations surrounding a central mahogany bar and 6 others on comfortable bench seating) and embark on daily cruises on the waters of the Buffalo River through Downtown Buffalo’s Canalside area.

According to Captain Brandon all rides are two hours in length. They run seven days a week. If your group rents out all 16 seats, it is $35 per person. If you rent individual seats because you don't have enough to fill the boat, it is $40 per person for the two-hour cruise. The cruises have started for the season, but starting June 1st, they can be rented any time from starting at 9 am through their last cruise of the day, which begins at 7:30 pm.

Cancellation policy is as follows:

Cancellations made within 14 days of the tour will receive a full refund.
