What is a Hydrobike?
The Hydrobike Explorer I is our flagship product and we are proud to introduce you to it as well as the Explorer II – 1 Hydrobike for 2 people!
Designed by aeronautical engineer, Ray Buresch, the Hydrobike is best described as a water bicycle and quite possibly the most versatile water craft around. It is fast and fun enough to keep the young and young at heart happy. However, it is safe, easy, and quiet enough to suit Grandma’s needs. Also, Grandma gets to keep her backside dry! The elevated seat is more comfortable than a canoe or kayak, and allows riders to see and be seen by other vessels. This also creates a great vantage point for anglers and photographers!
Ever try to climb into a canoe from the water? It’s pretty tricky. The Hydrobike is stable enough to climb on or jump off of. In fact, it is almost impossible to turn over. It is perfect for practically any body of water. Hydrobikes can be operated in as little as 18 inches of water, as well as handle up to 4 foot swells! You can also ride one in reverse.
The Hydrobike can be safely used for:
- Sun bathing
- Good old fashioned fresh air & low impact exercise
The Hydrobike can be used in:
- Dune Lakes

Rudder doubles as a brake
Cruising speed is 5 MPH

Hydrobike Explorer is a premier, USA built pedal powered watercraft that has been established since 1990. Hydrobikes are the world’s most advanced Water Bikes that are now being enjoyed in over 70 countries.
Hydrobike Water Bikes are Space Age Technology. Our propeller is CAD/CAM generated not molded without regard for efficiency or performance.
Our technology is based on MIT “Propeller Theory” to achieve 90% + efficiency. This same theory was essential to the Gossamer Albatross the human powered aircraft that flew the English Channel in 1979, and allowed two men to pedal “UP THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER” from the Gulf of Mexico to above St Cloud, MN. While setting out July 4, 1994 from the Gulf of Mexico for a journey lasting 68 days, covering 1180 miles and averaging 18 miles per day pedaling up river.
This was made possible with the aide of our advanced propeller technology and a sleek catamaran float design unique to Hydrobike Explorer Water Bikes.
“I would personally recommend Hydro-Bikes to any resort or rental operator looking to
purchase reliable equipment that will return their investment.”
HydroBike is a Wonderful Recovery Regiment- “On March 10, 1999, I suffered a heart attack. As part of my recovery regiment my physician advised me to join a gym. So for spring, summer, and fall, there I was walking away on a treadmill. Excercising on the treadmill in the winter isn’t so bad. Come spring, I asked myself, ‘there has got to be something I can excercise on & enjoy that will get me outside.’ That something turned out to be the “Hydro-Bike.” I’m sure I drove the salesperson nuts. I live in Virginia and I was contacting the sales office at least once a day for a week with questions I thought important before I invested in this item. My questions included: was the material of good quality; was the chain weather/water resistant; and, were parts readily available. Stability on the water was a big question.I purchased my Hydro-Bike in May 2000. Best investment I ever made. I use the Hydro-Bike for 2 hours/day, whenever I can, weather permitting. The cardiovascular excercise is wonderful to say nothing of the strength you build in your legs. The Hydro-Bike can handle any wake/wave the inboard/outboard motor boats create. Then, in 2003, I purchased another Hydro-Bike so I’d have company when exercising. I have no problem acquiring an exercise companion.”
