Cascade Cycleboats was inspired on a sunny summer afternoon in 2012 while Kyle and his wife Anne were enjoying a beer alongside the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon. While watching dozens of people float on inner tubes and paddle boards, they talked about how awesome it would be to have a bar IN the water.

The idea to create a human-powered bar boat was born and they spent the next to years brining their unique paddle pubs to fruition. They built a prototype and worked with U.S. Coast Guard and Marine Safety Center to obtain commercial certification.

Cascade Cycleboats is proud to fabricate their tour boats from the ground up with a fun and hardworking team in Central Oregon.


Our study square pontoons form the base of our Cycleboat and take 3 – 4 weeks to fabricate.

While the pontoons are being welded, the rest of the team manufactures all of the other parts that go into a custom Cycleboat.  

During the last two weeks of the build, everything comes together quickly.
