About Us

Perth Waterbike Adventures launched in March 2020 at Matilda Bay, on the banks of the beautiful Swan River. Owned and operated by Vicky Forbes, Perth Waterbike Adventures aims to provide residents of Perth, and visitors to our sunny shores, with something different and unique to do.

Vicky has been involved in the tourist industry for a number of years and after doing a lot of research and following other businesses overseas, she knew that waterbikes would be the perfect water activity to introduce to Perth and so Perth Waterbike Adventures was born!

Perth Waterbike Adventures is located at the serene, calm and peaceful Matilda Bay, a recreational parkland between Hackett Drive and the river, where dolphins are known to frolic. Matilda Bay also includes Pelican Point, which is an important breeding sanctuary for migratory birds.

If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with family or friends, come and spend a day with us. Enjoy a leisurely glide on the water from Matilda Bay to the famous Blue Boat House, past the Statue of Eliza to the foothills of Kings Park Botanical Gardens, while observing the beautiful families of black swans and other bird and marine life. If you’re lucky, you may even get a chance to spot the resident Swan River dolphins!


Our Waterbikes

Our waterbikes are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and even if you don’t know how to ride a bicycle on land, you’ll be just fine riding our waterbikes!

There are two versions of the bike, a standard bicycle seat option and a reclining bike option – you can choose which option is most comfortable for you.

Our waterbikes are quiet, have zero emissions and are a great way to take in the surrounding beauty of Perth from a totally different perspective.
