You’ll hit the Charleston waterways on our 30 ft Pontoon-Style pedal powered cycle boat that holds up to 16 passengers. There are 10 cycle seats, which power a large paddle-wheel at the back of the boat. The cycle seats are set around our U-shaped bar which features built in coolers filled with ice for your beverages! With large benched seating at the front of the boat, there is plenty of room for sitting, walking around, dancing and visiting with others throughout the cruise. 

How It’s Powered

All electronics on board are powered by solar panels that sit on top of the boat’s canopy. Our boat is completely people-powered, but don’t worry, we have a backup motor that we use as needed.


When Cody first moved to the Lowcountry in 2014, he immediately loved the welcoming Southern culture of hospitality and fun. He eventually realized that there was a need for more opportunities to get out on the water and celebrate Charleston with friends.

Having experience with Nashville Pedal Tavern, Cody decided that a boat version would be a perfect fit for a water front city like Charleston. Unsure about how to make this crazy idea a reality, Cody put it on the back burner to focus on opening his fitness studio, Gritbox Fitness, in West Ashley.

Four years later, determined to make his idea happen in Charleston, Cody discovered Cycleboats, a company out in Oregon that was developing boats exactly like what he had been looking for! We’ve been having a blast with thousands of passengers ever since!

The edgy side of
Southern Hospitality

The pineapple used to represent a welcome home for sailors returning back to Charleston from sea. In a similar fashion our mascot, Pawley the Pineapple, represents everything that we love about the Lowcountry and value as a company: Southern hospitality, friendship, and fun!

This ain’t your boring sunset dinner cruise! Charleston knows how to party, and so do we. Pawley the Pineapple takes this one step further by wearing sunglasses to represent the most fun party in Charleston. He’s also hipper than the rest of the other pineapples in town! 😉
