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.

I’ve done 2 LeBarge Cruises with company that has come to visit. It’s always been a good time and I learn something new about my new home too. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Got to see dolphins and manatees. Would highly recommend.
