We had such a wonderful time on the Paradise Cycle Boat sunset cruise! It was a beautiful cruise, with dolphins and so much local nature. They gave us history about the island, the ecology, and celebrities who live on the island. We played island trivia and won prizes to local restaurants. What a great experience! The boat is pristine, covered for shade, you can sit at the bar and cycle, and there's a bathroom! :) You won't regret this experience, take an island cruise with Mike and Deborah!

Went on a lunch cruise with my family (parents, husband and two kids, ages 6 & 8). The host was very accommodating of our food order prior to boating, and our wraps were delicious. Captain Mike was delightful and knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area, without being boring. Got a great tour of the area by boat, and even saw dolphins. Captain was great about kindly following the dolphins and had one jump up by the boat! Host was great about asking what music we wanted and let the kids pick a few songs. Dress-up and photo props were a hit with the kids too, they had a great time dancing and being silly. Would definitely do this again!

Had a group of 13 for hubby's 73rd Birthday and it was just a fantastic sunset cruise time! Debra and the skipper kept things moving with great music and fun things to do. We had brought pizza, drinks, cupcakes and petit fours and they had all the ice and coolers we needed. Although it started out cloudy the sun came out just before it touched the horizon, so it was perfect.

Captains Mike and Deborah are outstanding hosts! We chose Paradise Cycle Boat Cruises for a sunset cruise for my bachelorette weekend. Mike guided the boat with ease and Deborah made sure we were comfortable and having fun. If you want a fun night out, look no further - they really do it all - certified safe and environmentally friendly boating, nature and celebrity tours, 90's dance party DJ services, and a beautiful marriage blessing to end the trip! Thanks again Captains Mike and Deborah!

I can't say enough good things about our tour. Learning about the local history of Marco Island and the surrounding area was great. Captains Mike and Deb had extensive knowledge of the area and wildlife. The dolphins at Dolphin point were spectacular on this day. The excursion was just the right amount of time. Deb and Mike packed alot of information and scenery into the hour and a half tour.

Our group didn't do a whole lot of cycling which was ok because Capt. Mike motored us around while we enjoyed the amazing scenery. I'm a Veteran and greatly appreciated the flags and patriotism of our crew and their boat. We need more people like Mike and Deb. I can't thank them enough for acknowledging my friends father who was on the tour with us and is a Vietnam Vet. Big Jay was in his glory when Deb and Mike played the the U.S. Navy theme song "Anchors Aweigh". Deb and Mike go out of their way to personalize the experience.

In closing, thank you Deb and Mike for a great tour. We will be calling you on our next visit to the island.


We enjoyed a Sunday birthday party ? on Paradise Cycle Cruise in Marco! The host and captain made it so fun with fun Trivia questions with prizes for all ages, kids to adults. Made it fun for all. The host shared information about the island and the areas we past by including hideaway beach. We saw many dolphin along our way. Party hats and silly sunglasses with tambourines neat and clean available for all as the music plays to dance and sing together on the boat. We enjoyed the 90min option with BYOB. They had coolers with ice and holders for all drinks on the boat. You could peddle or not peddle as a motor could do all the work if you prefer. Very fun. Lots of memories made!

Paradise cycle boat cruises can't be beat! It was an absolute blast. We went with a party of 9 on the sunset cruise and even the teenagers said "this was the best two hours we have had in a long time!" Captain Mike and Debbie were the perfect hosts. They provided all the fun with trivia, Marco island information, party props, music, dancing and so much more! The dolphins (and birds!) were amazing- they swam so close to the boat! We brought our own drinks and snacks on board. This was the highlight of our trip and we highly recommend it!

We have gone on the Paradise Cycle Boat twice now and we highly recommend them. We reserved the entire boat for a family members 50th birthday! Captain Mike and Captain Deborah were awesome! They are super responsive, have a great boat and made the experience fabulous.

I can not say enough about Captain Mike and Deborah. We took the afternoon lunch cruise with paradise cycle boat cruises and it was absolutely fantastic. Down to the wonderful packed lunches made to order for us to what was the most affordable Disney cruise we've ever taken (Captain Deborah played Disney music for us which we thoroughly enjoyed). They both went above and beyond to make sure not only that us parents had a amazing experience but also made sure that the kids had enough things to keep them occupied during our trip. I hope to make it back down here again soon and will be sure to head back to visit for our next adventure!

Thank you Debbie and Mike for a great day on the water for my birthday. We loved the special effort you made with the decorations, my birthday hat, the fun props, the video you sent us. My family loved it, we will be back again!

What a wonderful time we had on the Paradise Cycle Boat tour!! We were a family of six plus grandma-everyone had a good time. Ages ranged from 11-75 yrs and we all participated in the cycling and the trivia and agreed 5 stars all the way! We saw many dolphins swimming right off the side of the boat, it was very special- a fun way to spend a few hours. The hosts are knowledgeable on the history of Marco Island, they pointed out celebrity homes, were funny and personable, provided lunch and we even won prizes!! We had a terrific time. Would highly recommend.

This was my second cruise with Paradise and Captain Mike and Deborah. My first was a sunset cruise and what a spectacular sunset it was, well worth the adventure. Made new friends and had a great time too. Went for an afternoon cruise this time and was so delighted to see the dolphins playing right beside the boat. Captain Mike went out of his way to ensure we were all were able to get as much time with them and as many pictures as everyone wanted. What a stand up guy. I highly recommend adding one of their cruises to your day.

We had an awesome time on a sunset cruise. We saw dolphins and beautiful sandy beaches. Great job, Captain Mike. Loved every moment.

Paradise Cycle Boat Cruises was a great fun way to spend a sunset on the water on Marco Island. We live here but wanted to get a new perspective on what happens at sunset. Captain Deborah and Captain Mike made our trip enjoyable and entertaining. You can paddle as much (or as little) as you want. Bring your music requests! Captain Deborah will play whatever gets you going...dancing, waiving and just enjoying the sunset.

My wife and I along with our good friends decided to take a last minute sunset tour with Paradise Cycle Boat yesterday. The boat was very clean and well kept. The couple who runs it were wonderful and very easy going on our trip. We brought our own beers and the coolers were perfect to keep them cold and ready while tooling around and viewing the beautiful scenery of Marco Island. Captain Debbie gave us some insight on the past and present Celebrities who live and have lived in the area which was cool to hear about. We spotted a family of dolphins, played music and games learned a little more about the marine life in the area and of course saw a beautiful sunset! Highly recommend you jump on board and take a trip.

Our cycle cruise was amazing! The captain and host keep the party going while ensuring safety in a professional and responsible manner. We saw dolphin, had great drinks and food (brought onboard by us) and saw a spectacular sunset. This is one adventure that is locals will definitely be doing again. Thank you for a great 50th birthday for my husband!

What a fun trip on Paradise Cycle Boat Cruise! The Captains were immediately welcoming and very accommodating. I have been on a number of cruises around Marco Island and this one was, by far, the best and most fun. They provided great music, ice, coolers, cups, and hand sanitizer. They also shared the history of the island and pointed out beautiful homes along the cruise route. We even played trivia and shook tambourines to music as we waited to see the most beautiful sunset...I highly recommend this trip!

Our family of 6 including my sister and her family had a wonderful time with Captains Mike and Debbie on our sunset cruise last night. Marco Island is a beautiful community and we enjoyed cruising around the area and loved checking out the dolphins too. We enjoyed dancing and swaying to the music as we cruised to catch the sunset which was beautiful. Kudos!

Lori R.

Our group booked a Friday night, sunset cruise. While the weather was not conducive for a good view of the sun setting, we had a wonderful evening. We were made very welcome, there was such a party atmosphere. We were absolutely amazed at the dolphins that accompanied us alongside the boat. It was a very special evening. I highly recommend the Paradise Cycle Boat for a great evening!

Dan R.

Paradise cycle provided a great sunset cruise. Captain Mike and Captain Debra are professional and welcoming. We totally enjoyed the St Patrick's Day props provided and were happy to be able to bring our our snacks and drinks. We had a blast dancing to music from one of the guests play list. I highly recommend this boat tour!

Lorraine M.

What a great experience we had on the sunset cruise! The captains/hosts Deborah and Mike were very gracious, informative and kind. The boat itself is very cool and clean with a bathroom to boot! It's fun to pedal or just lounge and enjoy the beauty and history of Marco Island. Deborah and Mike provided great info on the local attractions, history and best local restaurants - one of which we've already tried and loved! This is such a great relaxing and fun way to cruise around Marco with friends and/or family. I would highly recommend. Bring your own food and drink, and enjoy!

Meg M.

A group of friends went on the sunset cruise. We loved the music, props, dolphins, trivia, and sunset. It was a wonderful time. I highly recommend Paradise Cycle Boat Cruises.

Jen F.

Unbelievable time last night on our sunset cruise with Paradise Cycle Boat Cruises. Captains Mike & Debra are best in class. The boat is so cool and the ability to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful views or to pedal at your own pace on the cycle chairs was a blast. No pressure to ride, just to have a great time. We saw several dolphins with babies alongside. The waters are calm and sights a plenty and the sunset was breathtaking.
It was a blast from start to finish and recommend for all ages as the fun and games aboard the boat are for everyone. A truly unique and amazing experience. We will be back.

Jon S.

I love this cruise! The sunset cruise is my favorite! I've taken 2 cruises now in the past month. The first I brought my visiting sister and friend. The second cruise I brought my 17 year old daughter! She had alot of fun! Next up I'll bring the hubby and other 2 kids. It's fun with great music tailored to all passengers. Captian Deborah, Mike and Bill are a hoot! A bonus is you get to bring aboard your own favorite snacks and beverages!

Jolene K.

This tour is a blast! Captains Mike and Deborah are the best and make sure you have a wonderful time while on their amazing boat. They talk about the wildlife you see, Island facts and of course Dolphin sightings all while having fun listening to your favorite tunes. Pedaling the boat is fun but if you would rather relax in their new lounge area...that's ok too. If you want to have guaranteed fun...this is the tour for you!!!

This is an addition to my last post rating this fabulous cruise. This is the second year in a row that we have celebrated my grandson's birthday onboard their Cycle cruise. It has been amazing each time. My grandson loves it! They truly make the birthday's so much more memorable. Captain Deborah is the Queen of parties and is so good with kids. My grandsons loved her. She really broke out the party for them. You won't be disappointed having your party or just a quiet evening out on the Paradise Cycle boat.

Mike and Deborah made us feel at home on their boat. We had two young children with us, and felt very safe with them on the boat. The lunch tour was great. Deborah talked about the island, nature, and celebrities who reside on the island. We had a lot of fun, and enjoyed playing trivia! We learned a lot about Marco Island, too. Thanks for the wonderful adventure.

One the BEST boat tour experiences I've ever had! One of the BEST tour experiences I've ever had honestly. So much fun, so much to see, and the tour guides Captain Deborah & Captain Mike are super knowledgeable about the island. My entire family enjoyed it from start to finish. It was such a blessing to meet Captain Deborah & Captain Mike. There needs to be more people on this Earth with hearts & souls like them!

"My husband, sister, brother-in-law, and I had a great time on the sunset cycle cruise boat. It was so much fun cycling while enjoying drinks and snacks. From the coolers, ice, and cups that were provided, to the music that played on the speakers, to the party hats, light up eye glasses, and beautiful boat lights, the cruise had all that you need. Captain Deborah and Captain Mike are a great team, running an awesome cruise. The sunset was breathtaking, the views were spectacular, and the spin game we played was great added fun. Highly recommend the Paradise Cycle Boat. Thanks again Captain Deb and Captain Mike!

Nancy B

This is the BEST 2 hour sunset cruise! We pedaled, danced, sang (byob) and had a blast! Captains Mike and Deborah gave us a great tour of Rose marina, the bays and islands . We caught a glimpse of dolphins and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Disco party, games and prizes and onboard very clean bathroom. Don't miss out on a fun time! Thanks to Mike and Deb... unforgettable cruise!

Paula N

Such a fun time. Captain Mike and First Mate Dave we're very helpful and friendly. Beautiful sightseeing and lots of dolphins. Boat was clean and very comfortable. All of my group of 8 had a blast. We will definitely doing it again. Highly recommend this Paradise Cycling Boat experience.
Should also mention that when making the reservations dealing with Deborah was very easy. She was extremely pleasant and accommodating

Lynn C

We had a great time on our sunset tour! It was just four of us and Mike and Deb went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. So much fun! This is a relaxing and fun way to see parts of the island. Would highly recommend to anyone.


Deborah and Mike were such gracious hosts and wonderful people! They made our Christmas eve cruise so much fun and we learned a lot about the area."

James G

You won't find a friendlier crew than Captains Mike and Deb-or one more dedicated to your good time aboard their custom pedal boat. These two clearly enjoy what they do, and you will too. Expect nothing less than a fun-filled tour of beautiful Marco Island, complete with lots of intimate back stories. The best two hours we spent during our stay on Marco!

Bob D

Have been on Marco Island for over 30 years, we know the island well. Never really seek out the tourist thing to do. But I must say this is a unique concept and extremely enjoyable! The hosts were fabulous, they welcome you to BYOB and snacks and have coolers waiting for you with ice. Next time we go we will bring all of our neighbors....
A fun evening had by all!"

Dawn O

Beautiful evening w super Captains Michael and Debora and first mate David. Very attentive to our comfort. Great atmosphere for meeting new folks. Fun time spinning the wheel for great prizes. Highlight of the sunset cruise was the lights and party atmosphere providing a sweet ending. Thank you, Paradise Cycle Boat cruises

Gloria K

Wanted to share the awesome time we had on Captain Michael and Captain Deborah's cycle boat. Fun, entertaining and very relaxing. One of the nicest features is the private restroom facility. It was wonderful to here of Marco Island history from them. This is such a great way to see and visit Marco Island.
Thank you, Captain's",

Sherry F

A friend invited me to go on the Saturday morning Cycle Exercise class. My husband joined us too - and we all had a blast! It was SO FUN and a great workout too. You can workout at your own pace, it's fun and energizing, and the scenery is just gorgeous. Birds flying all around, the warm sun sparkling on the waterways, and a beautiful breeze too. It's a must do - we'll be back for sure!

Tami W

What a fun experience. We went with a group of friends and saw dolphins, the gorgeous sunset, all the while listening to our own choice of music sipping on wine and taking in the beauty of Naples from the water. There was also quite a bit of singing and dancing going on and just a wee bit of paddling! Captain Mike your hospitality was above and beyond any of our expectations! We will return.

Debra W

Captains Mike and Deb have a excellent evening cruise boat!! We watched the sun go down looking for the much talked about green flash that remained hidden that day. Captain Deb is quite the tour guide with local facts and folklore that I had no idea existed. Captain Mike was very alert at the helm so we did not become a local Gilligan's Island legend. The boat was very clean and easy to board from the Rose Marina floating dock. Parking is plentiful at Rose Marina and they do have a Overflow parking lot across the street. I also liked that there was a clean bathroom available on board!! I highly recommend after my 5-star experience!!"

Dean S

Such a fun time! I've been coming to Marco for 20 years and was looking for something new. We did the morning cycling class and it's great for all levels of fitness. Both my parents were able to participate and you could go at your own pace. Deborah and Captain Mike were awesome and kept the party going with awesome music. We even saw two dolphins too! A very unique way to enjoy the water and I'd highly recommend to anyone!"

Dana W

Paradise Cycle Boat Tours is an absolute MUST when visiting Marco Island!! The lunch ride was such an incredible value for a family boat adventure with a delicious meal. We have done other boat rides here on Marco but this one is by far the best bang for buck! Captain Mike & Deborah are super special people. My kids were unsure, reluctant participants at first but Deborah's sweet hospitality, smile and DJ skills had my teenagers really truly enjoying themselves doing trivia, photo ops, dolphin spotting and sighting all the celebrity mansions. Thank you Paradise Cycle Boats for saving the day. Also a portion of the proceeds are donated to charity. 5 Stars!!!!

J Sherman

HIGHLY RECOMMEND -- wonderful people and an amazing time!! The boat was extremely clean. Lots of space. Bathroom onboard. Captains Mike and Deborah were great. They knew how to keep the party going. An extremely fun experience. We brought drinks and snacks with us. Saw a beautiful sunset and lots of dolphins. We played fun games and it was a blast. You will not be disappointed!

Katie Hendricks

This Marco Island treasure far exceeded our expectations! We went as a family with our two kids (9 and 7). The captains we super friendly and had everything set up and ready to go perfectly on time. We quickly proved that we didn't have much manpower to pedal the boat. No worries... most of the cruising around was done by a true motor. The boat itself was incredibly clean and new. Decorated to the nines with Christmas lights galore!

These are some of the nicest owner/operators you could ask for. Really good people who run a fun, clean, and safe operation. Well done!!!

Finnegan Potts

This cruise was amazing!!! We had so much fun. Singing, trivia, beverages and new friendships. Then there were the dolphin. OMGosh were they showing off tonight. To the Captains, Deb & Mike, thank you. Not only for a wonderful time but for your contribution to the children on this island. Y'all are amazing people.
Big ole Texas hug from us to you.
