Marco Pedalboat is a Favorite!
We encourage our guests to see Marco Island on Marco Pedalboat. We have taken several different cruises around the islands and this has been one of our favorites!
The Marco Pedalboat docks at Isle of Capri (next to the Island Gypsy) at 292 Capri Blvd, Naples. (239) 920-1230. https://www.marcopedalboat.com
This company offers 1 1/2 hour and 2 hour cruises. The cost is affordable, ranging from $35 to $45 with ages 3-12 at $25 and under age 2 free. The ride is family friendly. The most popular of the tours is the 2 hour sunset cruise. We took this tour recently and saw a simply stunning sunset. The captain of the boat takes complimentary photos of the passengers to send by email. The quality of the photos are really good!
Larry and I really enjoyed our sunset tour on the Marco Pedalboat!
About the Marco Pedalboat
The Marco Pedalboat seats 16 people on comfortable “bar stools” and is a large pontoon style boat. We had the option of pedal or not. The motor really doesn’t need one to pedal at all, but it is fun to try it out! Our captain encouraged us to try pedaling just to see how much speed we could develop to move the boat. Needless to say, we didn’t quite move the boat as fast as the motor!
What You See
The Marco Pedalboat travels about Isle of Capri and Marco Island. This is a truly fun trip. We were able to see some of the more interesting homes on Marco Island; in addition, the captain told us some interesting tales/facts about them. Some homes are just unusual or are/were owned by celebrities that we saw. Along the way, especially in the Marco River, we saw several dolphins. This was also the first time either Larry or I have seen Black Crowned Night Herons. These are nocturnal feeding herons that are often seen near sunset.
What to Bring – Enjoy the Music
Guests on the tour are encouraged to bring snacks and/or dinner, in addition to drinks on the boat. Iced coolers are provided on the boat. Having your favorite snack or beverage as the boat travels the Gulf waters makes a relaxing and fun trip. Upbeat music makes the boating experience even more fun! Music requests are honored with a wide variety play list.
The Marco Pedalboat is definitely something we will recommend to our guests at Sea Mar Condo! What a fun evening we had, and we can’t wait to do it again soon!
