LeBarge Sarasota Sunset Cruises

LeBarge offers several types of local cruises, with the Tropical Sunset Cruise their most famous option.

During the two-hour Tropical Sunset Cruise, you’ll cruise with other passengers along the Gulf of Mexico while enjoying a drink (a Siesta Key Sunset cocktail, perhaps?) and some “boat bites” like a BBQ chicken sandwich or LeBarge nachos.

Get into the moment with the cruise’s live entertainment, courtesy of Jimmy Buffet-style musicians who add the right Floridian touch. You may even join some other passengers in dancing to the rhythm.

Then, as the sun begins to make its descent, enjoy the beautiful view but keep your eyes on the water, too. You just may find dolphins splashing around.

You’ll feel like you’re on a mobile island, thanks to the real palm trees that adorn the top of the boat, adding an extra special tropical feel. Each Tropical Sunset Cruise lasts two hours.

LeBarge Tropical Cruises Sightseeing & Nature Cruise

For some daytime fun with the family, take advantage of LeBarge’s Sightseeing & Nature Cruise. This two-hour excursion is ideal for all ages.

You’ll have the chance to enjoy a drink and order something to eat if you’d like while listening to the narrator share history and fun facts about the Sarasota area. Get a unique view of stunning waterfront homes and local wildlife that are both best seen by the water.

While enjoying the Sightseeing & Nature Cruise, you’ll once again want to keep your eyes open for dolphins and manatee active in our local waters. The Sightseeing & Nature Cruise leaves at 2 pm daily.

LeBarge Dolphin & Manatee Watch Cruise

If dolphin and manatee sightings are what you want the most, then you don’t want to miss the Dolphin & Manatee Watch Cruise, held at 11 am daily.

A Sarasota Bay Explorers-trained marine biologist joins LeBarge Tropical Cruises to share information about local bottlenose dolphins and manatees. Sarasota Bay Explorers is a sister company to LeBarge and is located at Sarasota’s Mote Marine Laboratory. This ensures that you’ll get the most up-to-date information possible on these popular, iconic marine mammals.

Rhythm on the Bay Cruise

For the ultimate in tropical experiences, come join LeBarge for a Sunday afternoon Rhythm on the Bay Cruise. Sit back and relax with your chosen drink while cruising around Sarasota Bay. The steel drum music will make you feel miles and miles away from the real world.

LeBarge Tropical Cruises also does private charters for groups of 15-120 so you can enjoy Sarasota’s tropical floating paradise in style. Keep LeBarge in mind for weddings, anniversaries, reunions, and other special events.
