Lagerhead Cycleboats

The latest fun on the water Lagerhead Cycleboats has arrived on Fort Myers Beach! Owners Randy Abraham and Drew Johnson are excited to bring this new concept of fun on the water to our area – a boat powered by guests at the bar pedaling. Lagerhead Cycleboats is a human-powered party boat that offers a variety of boat tours with a 2-person crew to steer you and your party to the most magnificent views on the water. During tours the captain and first mate will keep you laughing and the boat makes stops by a waterfront bar or two also. If guests don’t have the most fun, entertaining experience, a full refund is offered, no questions asked.

The boat accommodates up to 15 guests, but you only need four who can actually pedal a bicycle to get it moving and there is always the back up motor. All party boat cruises, booze cruises, etc. are ages 21 and up and each guest is allowed to bring 36 oz. of beer or 18 oz. of wine and you will be stopping by local bars as well. They also offer family friendly Dolphin and Sunset cruises for ages 13 and up. All minors must be accompanied by an adult 25 or older. All are invited to attend their Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting on Sept 19 from 5:30-6:30pm at Salty Sam’s Marina. Complimentary appetizers and a cash bar will be provided by Parrot Key Grill. Free spins on the boat available. Lagerhead Cycleboats is located at Salty Sam’s Marina 2500 Main Street, Fort Myers Beach, FL. Booking is available online at or by phone 239-312-3137.
