Cruisin' Tikis Sarasota

There's no better way to end a day in paradise than by watching the sun dip below the horizon aboard a floating tiki bar. Sip on handcrafted cocktails, local beers or your favorite wine as the sky paints a mesmerizing palette of colors. With friendly staff, fun music and a relaxed ambiance, this cruise guarantees a good time.

Tours range from 90 minutes to four hours — motoring through either Sarasota Bay, the Intercoastal Waterway, Siesta Key, Lido Key, Bird Key or Longboat Key. Excursions accommodate up to 6 people (10 years old and over) and are customizable based on availability, so call for details and pricing.

LeBarge Tropical Cruises

For a true tropical experience, LeBarge Tropical Cruises offers a blend of relaxation and revelry on its narrated sightseeing cruises, sharing the history and culture that's built Sarasota. Float along the tranquil waters of Sarasota Bay while enjoying refreshing and tropical drinks from the onboard bar on the top deck of the boat.

This vessel is easily recognized in the marina for its artificial palm trees lined along the top and an iconic mermaid statue. Themed cruises and live entertainment make for a lively and enjoyable voyage at sunset hour, which embarks from downtown's Bayfront Park daily.

Sarasota Boat Tour

All aboard a rum-soaked adventure with the licensed captains of Sarasota Boat Tours. Private charters offer sightseeing, sandbar hopping, sunset tiki bar hopping, history and, of course, booze cruises (BYOB) with a designated captain.

A large ice-filled Yeti cooler is provided on all charters, so you can bring any snacks and beverages you want to ensure a good time! Excursions set sail in South Sarasota and embark into Little Sarasota Bay for tours ranging from 2.5 hours to 6 hours.

Marina Jack II Cruises

A Sarasota institution, the Marina Jack II yacht offers a variety of cruises right from Bayfront Park's Marina Jack restaurant – including their popular Sunset Dinner Cruise. Indulge in a white tablecloth meal paired with your drink of choice as you glide along the scenic waterfront and under the iconic John Ringling Bridge.

With breathtaking views of the city skyline, this luxury cruise is a feast for the senses while champagne flows and new friends are met along the ride.
