What’s Included in a Marco Island Cycle Boat Cruise?

Paradise Cycle Boat Cruises is locally owned and operated. You’ll have a Master Captain and First Mate on board with you to ensure your safety and to point out wildlife like dolphins, manatees, and wading birds. Sit back and relax on one of the bench seats, or take your turn up peddling on one of the pedal seats with backrests.

You’ll have the time of your life pedaling through the water and listening to the music on board, and free HD photos are taken on every tour! If you think you’ll get thirsty, don’t worry. You’re allowed to bring your own drinks, and Paradise Cycle Boat will provide all the ice, cups, and coolers. Kids are of course welcome as well, and the boat is completely covered for everyone’s comfort.

How It Works

With a name like “Cycle Boat Cruises,” the tour might make you apprehensive if you think you won’t be able to pedal the entire time. Not to worry! The boat has a motor and peddling is not required. There’s plenty of room for everyone on board at the pedal seats or bench seats. We already mentioned that you can bring your own drink, but feel free to bring snacks as well.

If you need to use the restroom on the tour, don’t worry. There is a private, walk in bathroom with wash area and fresh running water. Standard tours last 1.5-2 hours. In addition to the public tours, you can book a private party and celebrate your special occasion with your friends!
