We offer a rocking sound system and party lights! You are welcome to bring your own music/playlists aboard and can connect via Bluetooth directly to our speakers. We can also provide tons of music and playlists of your choice. Please be aware that we pedal through residential neighborhoods, so the captain will be in control of the volume.
Festive decorations and themed Sykyl Pub parties are permissible on private cruises only. Inappropriate or offensive décor will not be allowed.
A trained and experienced Sykyl Pub Captain will drive the bike, allowing your group to focus on enjoying the party.
For pub crawls with multiple groups, a set itinerary of three bar stops is pre-planned and cannot be changed. Typical cruises last approximately 2 hours.
Please arrive at least 20 minutes before your reservation's start time to allow for check-in, sign waiver verification, rule overview, and a prompt departure.
