Guests/visitors love this. Live music, sunset, cocktail bar, outdoor and indoor seating. Staff super accommodating and friendly. Entertainment fun and the whole atmosphere is festive. Food on board, but recommend you eat prior or after. Great way to see Sarasota from a different vantage point, enjoy the weather, beauty and enjoyable for all ages!

We were celebrating a birthday for a dear friend who loves being on the water. She and her husband were thrilled by the experience. Plenty of room, the crew was wonderful, the weather fabulous and the sunset was magical. Be sure to get there early to get a good seat by the railing or at the front of the boat... More

We did the two hour sightseeing cruise. It was just the right amount of time to learn about and see the Sarasota area from the water. The tour guide was easy to listen too and very informative

Nice trip, have done this cruise many times before. Missed the narration by the captain this time though. Even though I've heard it many times before, I'm sure my guests would have liked to hear a little more about the area.

Awesome cruise, fun, well organized and perfect time. Price is a good deal for the 2 hours around the bay, especially when the skies are clear and a guaranteed Beautiful sunset. Music was just okay, the sound system was not very good , they have more beachy or steel drum music that makes the trip more tropical.
