Forget scooters! Go for the real thing! Riding Harley’s on the island is awesome. The scenic oceanic road is something to see cruising on a motorcycle. The bikes were clean and great. The service was fantastic and prices were reasonable (hardly more than a scooter…). We’re going back later this year and will definitely rent for more days next time.

LOVE this place! They have really friendly service and an amazing selection of Harley Davidson motorcycles to choose from. I learned today that they were formerly known as "Sand Dollar Sports," but they're the same place :)

If you want to see cool places on the island, and feel the freedom of riding a Harley (as opposed to walking or grabbing a taxi, etc.) while in Cozumel, I would highly recommend checking this place out!

A buddy and I were on the island for Christmas without our wives being there! We decided to give ourselves a Christmas present by renting the bikes! It was fantastic!!!!! We spent the day touring the island and visiting the local establishments.
I would highly recommend this tour. Bikes ran and looked great.
Staff is fantastic and very helpful!

Do yourself a favor.....if you love riding Harley's......see these guys!!!!!

We booked the excursion through Carnival. We were SO excited about this excursion, based on all the reviews we read! We even tried to talk another couple into taking it with us as we thought it was going to be so awesome. The guide and the chase truck driver were great. Very informative and had cold water or cokes at each stop. Besides the beautiful scenery and nice lunch, that was the only thing good about this trip. The bikes were NOT in good condition. There were 4 bikes on this trip and every one did not have good brakes.There were 2 of us that were passengers and there was no cushioning in the seat - very uncomfortable. There was also rust on some of the bikes. Not what we expected at all. When we were almost to the last stop (lunch), there was some type of public official (not sure if was a policeman or what) that stopped us. Since I don't speak Spanish, I have no idea what was being said. We were stopped there about 15 minutes (it was VERY HOT) while they conversed about whatever it was. When we were finally able to go again, my husband's bike would not start. The guide gave us his bike and we went a short distance to the restaurant. He explained to us that some "tour companies" were not licensed and that is why the public official was checking all the license plates - to make sure they were licensed. We all went to the restaurant on the beach, where we had a chicken and beef fajita lunch (included in the package price). It was very good! When we finished eating, we came out to several police cars with lights flashing, surrounding the bikes and still checking things out. The tour guide arranged for a taxi to take us to the drop off (which was only about 1/4 mile) since the police were not letting the bikes go anywhere. Have no idea what the outcome was........ Would not recommend this excursion unless you check out the bikes first and maybe even take a trial run to check the brakes. We were also warned by another cruiser to check the tires. We did and they were just "okay". Very disappointed as this is what we were MOST excited about doing on our cruise.

Cat416,

We are genuinely sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience. I do want to inform you that we have had ownership change of the business that you are speaking of. Our company has purchased the old harley tour and given it a huge facelift! We now have 15 bikes which are all in tip top shape. We have several full time mechanics along with several new bikes that have been brought in from Texas. If you are ever back on the island we would love for you to give us another shot, I feel that you will have a completely different experience! Thank you for your feedback and helping us to be a better company for our customers!

This is a great excursion if you love to ride. We booked this excursion on our Carnival cruise as soon as we got on the ship ( note that if you are riding with a passenger you must get your ticket on the ship at the excursion desk), and it turned out we were the only ones on the ship that booked it, to my surprise they did not cancel the tour so we had a private ride/tour of the island. Sergio was our lead and did a great job with hand signals and pointing out obstacles in the road. The ride down the east side of the island along the coast is just beautiful. We stopped over there for a good freshly made chicken fajita lunch with a view of the water and browsed some of the local merchants. Then we rode back over in to the city and rode through some of the residential areas where the locals live which was very interesting and I'm sure very few ever see this. Throughout the ride Sergio's partner Manuel was following us in a chase car and would pull out in front at intersections to block traffic and protect us in the turns, they are very thorough with your safety on this ride. When the ride was over back at the pier they handed us an ice cold beer for the walk back to the ship! Excellent excursion and ride, and you couldn't ask for friendlier tour guides.
