Come join us aboard LeBarge, a Sarasota landmark for 30 plus years. Our casual laid-back atmosphere is enhanced by our tropical decor and yes, the palm trees are real. Let the mermaids lead the way through the tranquil waters of Sarasota Bay.

We offer you a full menu of cruises, each totally different: the morning Dolphin & Manatee Watch Cruise, afternoon Sightseeing & Nature Cruise, and the world-renowned Tropical Sunset Cruise with live entertainment. All cruises feature a full bar and light food menu.

In addition to our regular cruises, LeBarge offers Private Charters, the perfect venue for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, office parties, reunions and even the occasional burial at sea.

No vacation in paradise is complete without time spent on Sarasota Bay aboard LeBarge, Sarasota's tropical cruise experience.

We were looking for a a jaunt on the water, which we haven't done for quite a while. Chose a trip around Sarasota Bay and saw that Rye Road, one of our favourite local bands, were playing onboard a Lebarge sunset cruise so a perfect combination.

This was a perfect way to see the sights and enjoy music and cocktails for my husband's birthday! We had a blast. This is the 2nd time I've been on the sunset cruise and both were super fun.

This was our second time on the morning cruise. Once again, Tina was very informative and also very fun. We learned even more this time and saw several Dolphins. The crew is great. Highly recommend this 11 a.m. cruise.

Have been on LeBarge 3 times. It's a great way to spend time with friends and family. The music is always great and staff are very friendly. The views are of course amazing.

My fiancé and I organized for our wedding rehearsal dinner to take place on the cruise. We easily catered the food in from Publix and invited family and friends out on the bay for a sunset cruise. The weather was perfection, along with the friendly staff behind the bar. The live music they provided made the night as it was... More
