Though hydrobikes are like boats in that they provide safe transportation over water, they're most often likened to horses due to their storage consoles for carrots. Climb aboard a water steed with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a guided holiday-lights tour through the Naples Canals from Long Beach Hydrobikes, located on the Alamitos Bay dock (up to a $40 value).

Led by a seafaring spin guide, each holiday-lights tour guides up to 20 people through the picturesque Alamitos Bay and past droves of brightly lit estates on superstable water cycles. Propped above the churning surf and cruising at up to 7 mph, wave riders follow pros through the Naples Canals, either self-propelled on a hydrobike or while relaxing on a sturdy platform. Hydrobikes come equipped with drink holders to cradle provided hot chocolate and hot apple cider, and festive Santa hats are included with all tours so that participants can flag down disoriented reindeer. Holiday tours take place through January 1, and launch nightly at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 8 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. After the sugarplum season, this Groupon may be applied toward a normal two-hour hydrobike rental or two one-hour hydrobike rentals.

Long Beach Hydrobikes

One way to get an exceptionally close look at picturesque Alamitos Bay is to ride atop its churning surf on one of Long Beach Hydrobikes's stable, pedal-powered water cycles. The company ensures that renters catch the bay's most noteworthy sights, providing them with a map detailing the location of a bird sanctuary as well as a cove where jellyfish delicately billow in certain months.

Avid pedalers generally cruise at speeds of up to seven miles per hour, exercising bodies with a workout that takes advantage of water resistance to jettison excess calories out to sea. As there is virtually no risk of capsizing, riders may wear anything from a bathing suit to a water-soluble prom dress. The hydrobikes come equipped with storage compartments, drink holders, and a wealth of extra space to invite pets along for the ride, free of charge.

Good time! Perfect for my son who is blind! Open spaces for him to roam. Great staff. Thank you!

The owner John is very personable as is his wife. It's super fun as exercise goes & the Naples vicinity is charming. We were fortunate enough to be on the water at the same time as a couple of seals & the pelican & seagull communing is delightful as well. Going again in October :)
