Hydra Shade “Your Boating Umbrella”
At Hydra Shade we are committed to delivering the optimal rust free marine grade umbrella. Our products are designed by boating enthusiasts to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun either on or off the water. Our products feature simple yet innovative, and practical solutions for a variety of marine applications. Our unique umbrella design consists of an expanding umbrella base that secures our telescoping umbrella in place without the need of additional support or tie downs. The Hydra Shade umbrella will work with any adaptable cylinder or rod holder. Hydra Shade can be used on a kayak, sailboat, sportifsh convertible, center console, bass boat, lake boats, deck boat, powerboat, paddle boats, and even a dingy. Once you arrive at a beach or sand bar, switch to the beach spike and you are all set with a telescoping beach umbrella.

The Hydra Shade Story
After spending time cruising the Bahamas, the need for shade from the sun arose daily. We tried multiple shade options, but none were able to meet our expectations and needs. While boating in the Berry Islands, we lost our umbrella to swift wind. That was the last straw. Hydra Shade was conceived, and after over a year of design, fabrication, and quality trials. This is not your ordinary umbrella; every factor effecting a marine environment was taken into consideration to make Hydra Shade your boating umbrella. Rust free design, marine grade construction, wind resistant fiberglass ribs, telescoping height, and beach spike, UPF 30+ resistance to UV rays, the list goes on and on. Hydra shade debut in February 2012 at the Miami International Boat show with an overwhelmingly positive response from boaters. There were individuals with sailboats, tenders, center consoles, sport fish, high performance power boats, mega yachts, back country fisherman, bay boaters, pontoon boats, mobile marine mechanics, kayakers, and beach goers. Everyone was eager to have their hands on the Hydra Shade, many wanting one for them and a second or more as a gift for friends and family.

With many umbrella choices, Hydra Shade is focused on being your boating umbrella. Follow us to see where we are displaying the product, boat shows, retail stores, online retailers, and mail order magazines.
