A pedal pontoon is a pontoon boat that is powered by foot pedals. A pontoon boat is a flat boat that utilizes cylindrical flotation devices called pontoons to stay afloat. Pedal pontoons do not have gas or electric engines.
Pedal pontoons provide an environmentally friendly alternative to other types of watercraft and are an option for use on smaller bodies of water where internal combustion engines are possibly prohibited. Pontoon boats are usually used for pleasure boating or fishing. While the light structure makes the pontoon boat susceptible to waves and turbulent wind, pontoons are nevertheless a common big game fishing vessel.
