, Best of TripAdvisor on Marco Island

At the Boat House Marco, we’re always honored to hear and read our guests’ experiences. We send out a big THANKS to all who have visited with us and dropped their thoughts on TripAdvisor over the years.  The comments have helped us shape the best possible guest experience draped with Old Florida style and honed with our owner-operated hospitality. 


We've been honored for another year with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and to be ranked #1 for the Best Value on Marco Island!  Features our guests love the most include: our large dock area for fishing, dolphin watching, and relaxing by the pool; walking distance to Old Marco shoppes and restaurants; spectacular sunsets over the Marco River and our comfortably appointed, clean rooms.  With special offers available throughout the year to our guests booking direct, we invite you to celebrate with us this Fall. 


Best of Fall on Marco Island

Entertaining fall fun for kids of all ages begins with the #19 of 99 Boat Tours & Water Sports - Pirates of Marco Island!  The Black Pearl Pirate Ship sets sail from Rose Marina, offering adventures on the Gulf of Mexico.  An interactive family pirate excursion lets kids dress up in pirate attire and tattoos for an hour of 'Ahoy Matey!' adventure.  For a more relaxed time, their sunset tours offer 1.5 hours ride as the sunset paints the evening sky.


For those visiting beginning in October, plan ahead and get ready for thrills and chills with Marco Mystery and History Tours for a unique, mysterious, ghostly historical tour of our beloved island. Sure to get you in the ‘spirit’ of the harvest season.  If this interests you and your travel companions, ensure that you check their website and book ahead (minimum of 7 days in advances is required).  


For a truly memorable way to explore Marco Island on your next visit, rent out a cruiser or tandem bicycle, electric bike or scooter from Island Bike Shop.  With wide bike paths weaving throughout the island, including paths leading to the beaches and linking popular attractions, it’s an inexpensive way to spend quality time with your family and friends.  Mostly flat terrain makes for smooth riding, and the breezes keep riders cool while exploring the subtropical plants and trees and diverse native wildlife. If biking the island interests you, plan to make a reservation ahead of time.  Be sure to check out the Marco Island Bicycle Paths Map and feel free to ask our friendly staff any questions. Bicycling is a favorite local activity, and we are happy to help.


Whether your fall getaway brings you to our doorstep in the immediate future or your planning a late fall escape prior to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we have your ‘home away from home’ waiting at the Boat House with rooms available from $107/night.  Call us 239.642.2400 or visit our website today.
