about beach and saltwater rentals
When you request a quote or place an order for Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes, you will have the chance to order SparePaks with emergency spare parts to ensure your Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes are always ready for the next riders. We recommend always keeping one SparePak per Aqua-Cycle™ on hand. You can also view our recommended maintenance schedule which lists parts needing replacement after a certain number of hours of usage.

The average rental rate is $40 per hour worldwide. For a conservative calculation, if your Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes are rented for just $25 an hour and an average of 5 hours a day, each Aqua-Cycle™ will bring in $125 a day or $875 a week. At this low rental rate, in a typical 3 month summer season your Aqua-Cycles™ will pay for themselves almost twice – the first year.
Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes do not need to be launched from a dock. They are easily wheeled across the beach to the water’s edge for boarding but should not be pedaled unless they are in the water free floating to avoid damage to the moving parts.
Depending on the amount of traffic your beach location receives, you should start your rental business with a minimum of 2 to 4 … with plans to increase your fleet as soon as possible. It is very common for a customer to place a second order after the first 2 or 3 weeks in business for even better visibility and to capture all possible rentals.
While Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes may be called just Aqua-Cycles™, some other businesses refer to them as water bikes, pedal boats, or even floating tricycles. But don’t be fooled by the name, Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes are at the top of beach rental businesses’ rental lists.
Because Aqua-Cycle™ Water Trikes require less of an investment than most other watercraft, and take fewer repairs and maintenance time, they often bring a return on the investment within the first season.
