You can’t go wrong with the sunset cruise. Gorgeous cruise will get you into vacay mode and/or get you planning your retirement or exit mode from whatever miserable place you’ve come from that’s not Florida.
Drinks - get the Malibu bucket drink. So delicious! Def a sunset cocktail!
Now the bad....
Now I preface by saying this is my second sunset cruise in this boat in 3 years and I had the same experience both times. The bathroom situation is no better than a portapotty. Between the smell, the urine on the floor (imagine the drunks p*ssing all over the place - yeah) and the fact there was no toilet paper with 30 minutes left of cruising. I actually had a lady tell me to shake that thing off (instead of wiping).
Are you grossed out yet?

So if you can hold your bladder or can stomach the sloshy urine bathroom floor and stench, def do it.

Enjoyable experience but if I had one criticism it would be that LaBarge is trying to cram to many people on the upper deck. Eliminating one table and 4 chairs near the drink station would open up the whole area to a more pleasant experience for all.

You really can't go wrong with a sunset cruise, but you add music and drinks!! It was beautiful. My only issue was when you arrive to board(you want to get there somewhat early) Sunset cruise departs at 630, so arrive at least by 530 and they start boarding at 6. In the meantime while standing in line watch out for the blatant line cutting, it is pretty blatant and no age limits on the offenders. Most of the people that cut in front of us were pretty old and had no problem lying. Sad thing is that it is all general admin.

This was a wonderful two hours with many dolphin sightings and even some manatees. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The boat was comfortable. And Sarasota Bay is beautiful. Such a great experience.

The two hour afternoon sightseeing cruise of the Sarasota Bay was informative and enjoyable. The boat (though full) was comfortable and the guide was interesting and easy to hear. We saw many dolphins and learned about wildlife in the area. The boat also cruised by some of the very spectacular mansions that line the inter coastal. The skyline of Sarasota was beautiful to see from our vantage point. Highly recommend if you are in the area and want to get an overview.
