Q: When will the tours start? A: Our boats are custom, and built to our specifications, from the ground up. We are expecting to have the first boat in the water on Lake Norman after July 26th.

Q: Can I bring food and drink? A: Yes, passengers are allowed to bring beer, wine, water and soft drinks on the tour. No hard alcohol/liquor is permitted. Without much extra counter top space, snacks work better than carry on food (i.e. pizza, subs, catering, chicken not recommended) See our policies for the suggested amount of beer or wine to bring for the Cruise.
Q: Do all passengers need to be 21+? A: For tours that are listed 21+, all other tours are open to any age 13 years old and up. If the full boat is chartered for a private party, all ages are welcome. Any children under 13 years old must wear a life jacket on the boat at all times and on the docks.
Q. What if we get tired of pedalling or it gets windy? A. We have an eco-friendly electric motor that we can use to assist if needed. We will monitor all weather alerts and radar before, and during for the duration of the Cruise.
Q: Is there a bathroom? A: We will have the option of a portable toilet on board the vessel. Gender neutral. Use of a nearby restroom before boarding is strongly encouraged, and during any stops.
Q: How many people need to pedal to power the boat? A: The boat requires a minimum of six passengers. If the minimum is not met, your open individual ticket tour may be rescheduled to a different time or date.
Q: How hard is the pedaling? A: Pedaling is as hard or easy as the group decides, we can adjust the resistance!
Q: Do we need to bring a Designated driver? A: No, the boat is charter by a trained and experienced captain, you just have fun and enjoy being on the water.
Q: Can I move around the boat? A: Yes. You are free to walk around the deck. Q: What should I wear? A: Dress appropriate to the weather, sunglasses and hats are great, comfortable clothes but you will be seated under a large canopy if needed, shielding the tour from direct sun and rain.
