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.

This cruise was amazing in every way! The musician "TC" was a real hit! We will continue to do this cruise on future vacations to Siesta Key. Wish we would have known about this the past 6 years we've been vacationing here!

It would be very helpful when people arrive and pay for the LeBarge if they were given a bordering number and not have to stand in line in the hot sun. Should not matter where people wait to board and certainly unnecessary to stand in line in the Florida sun. Enjoyed the LeBarge trip and a beautiful sunset. Many of... More

We hosted our first Employee Appreciation Party and it was worth every penny spent! The crew was fantastic and very helpful (we had alot of items for gifts and food). For our employees that normally cannot afford a cruise this was perfect! In fact I can see it being an annual event.

We took my mother out for Mother's Day and she loved it! If you don't have a boat of your own this is a great way... More

My mom just moved her so we wanted to take her out for an afternoon on the bay! LeBarge is perfect! Nothing fancy but they do have a bar and serve snacks as well.

We were visiting Sarasota for a high school graduation and on the first night went on this sunset cruise. It's a great way to see some of the beautiful city and houses of Sarasota! We got there early and we had plenty of seating to accommodate our large party. The sunset was beautiful and even saw a dolphin or two!... More

I went on LeBarge for the second time last week on a sunset cruise, and took all our family from out of town the night they got in. If you're expecting some fancy-schmancy boat, you should take another one, but if you want a FLORIDA fun time that is laid back, this is it. The boat cruises through the bay,... More
