With so many options it can sometimes be hard to decide what to do in San Diego. The Carlsbad Lagoon in North County boasts cool, calm waters that are perfect for all ages and a wide variety of aquatic vehicles including Aqua Cycles.
A visit to the Carlsbad Lagoon is a must for anyone in San Diego. Located just across the freeway from the Pacific Ocean, the waters in the lagoon are warmer and much calmer than the ocean. What’s more, the lagoon has rentals of all kinds of fun vehicles you can take out on the water. Aqua Cycles resemble giant tricycles with three large, plastic, blue wheels that allow the cycle to be ridden on the surface of the water. There is room for two to three people with the person in the front seat pedaling. If you have never been on an Aqua Cycle, there is nothing quite like it as it lets you pedal around the lagoon, exploring it for as long as you like. If you start to get warm in the Southern California sun, simply hop off and cool off in the lagoon before climbing back on board and continuing the adventure. Depending on the length of your rental you may actually start to get a little tired and want to switch off with the person in the back and allow them to pedal. Spending an afternoon in the cool Carlsbad Lagoon is one of the top things to do in San Diego when the weather is nice, and riding an Aqua Cycle makes it even better.
Aqua Cycles can be rented at the Carlsbad Lagoon for $30 for one hour or $50 for two hours, giving you ample time to cruise around the lagoon. People looking for fun things to do in San Diego but not necessarily interested in an Aqua Cycle can rent other vehicles at the lagoon including stand up paddleboards, boats, kayaks, peddle boats, jet skis, and canoes.
A Funseeker can purchase a FunGig that includes rental of an Aqua Cycle and learn how to navigate the vehicle from someone who has done it before. Funbassadors can arrange a trip to the Carlsbad Lagoon and rental of an Aqua Cycle and maybe even bring along a picnic or some snacks to enjoy after the Aqua Cycle adventure is done.
