Experience the Marco Pedal Boat on Your Next Vacation

When you’re planning your getaway to Marco Island, chances are you plan to spend loads of time on the beach. You’re in for a great trip, since there’s plenty of shorelines to go around and it’s always fun in the sun and safe for the whole family. If you want a unique way to experience the water, consider booking a boat tour! 

There are several boat tours in Marco Island, but Marco Pedal Boat is one of the most fun. Wondering, “What is Marco Pedal Boat?” Here’s everything you need to know about booking a tour, just minutes away from our Marco Island beachfront rentals.

What’s Included in the Marco Pedal Boat

The Marco Pedal Boat is Marco Island’s original pedal-powered pontoon! It’s the number one boat tour on Marco Island, and for good reason. 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 16 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 Marco Pedal Boat will provide all the ice, cups, and coolers. You’ll even get a free koozie! If docking allows, the boat will make bar stops along the way, so you don’t even have to buy your own drink beforehand. Kids are of course welcome as well, and the boat is completely covered for everyone’s comfort.

How It Works

With a name like “Marco Pedal Boat,” 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. The boat stops at multiple waterfront locations where you will be allowed to get off and take care of things. 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 up to 19 people!
