A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon on the water!
The lady doing the presentation had a true depth of knowledge. We learned a lot form her, even after having a home in Sarasota fro fifteen years. Sarah did a wonderful; job also.
We loved Chloe's narration even though here were rude loud people talking and being obnoxious, she very politely asked them to quiet down so others could hear her narrate. One lady was so rude and told the Capyain (Don) he'd be sorry.... Like really lady? If you want to get drunk and talk loudly then go to a bar!!!! But Yes, loves it and Chloe!
What a beautiful day. Great crew, stable craft, detailed explanation of the history of the area as well as current events. This was our second excursion. Fantastic way to see beautiful homes from a boat.
It was a very enjoyable way to learn more about the Sarasota area and history.
The onboard service was good and the narration was helpful. The route had different aspects of Floridean life to experience. We had two dolphins sightings and saw many different birds.
We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the lady narrator was awesome (sorry I don't remember her name). We saw dolphins and many areas that we will go and explore. We will definitely be back to try another cruise and also bring visitors when they come to Florida.
Michelle was very knowledgeable about our excursion this was my second time on LaBarge. I’ve recommended it to many friends
The cruise was very enjoyable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Friendly and knowledgeable crew. Punctual. Clean facility.
Interesting information, nice tour route, all staff helpful.
We had great seats in the back of the boat...however, it was difficult to hear the narrator due to the noise from the boat's motors. Otherwise, it was a great cruise!
We’ve been on the cruise several different times with friends from out of town. Other than the atrocious parking situation with Marina jacks taking all of the public parking spaces it was very enjoyable we have several more friends coming this winter and I don’t intend to go through the parking fiasco anymore.
It was a nice tour for just the right length of time. The crew was pleasant and Tina was a very goo guide.
We brought a couple with us who had never been on your cruise & they were very impressed & loved the cruise. It was a very windy & somewhat chilly day because of it, however, the scenery & the narrator made up for the weather. ( : We saw some Dolphins & many sea birds & gorgeous waterfront homes. So, our friends, visiting from Keller, TX. were excited to see & hear about it all ! ( :
It was a nice cruise. We really didn't know what to expect and were happy with what we experienced. All the employees we met were very pleasant and friendly. Thank you!
Price point, great explanation of area and history
The cruise was excellent! We have been on several times with family and friends. It is an excellent value. Love the fact we can purchase drinks and snacks. The crew is awesome!
The best cruise/tour I have EVER been in! The draft, specially Cattie were amazing! Thank you!
Beautiful scenery, great crew, great hotdogs!
Very enjoyable tour and very informative tour guide. We did see a manatee, dolphins and osprey along with gorgeous homes. Will book this tour again when we have out of town guests.
