LeBarge Tropical Cruises
This cruise company provides sightseeing and dolphin watching cruises that are narrated by a marine biologist, as well as sunset cruises with live entertainment, special event cruises, and private charters. Reservations are suggested.
The staff was very friendly and the entertainer was a good singer. The sun dipping below the horizon is always awesome. I was expecting somewhat of a commentary about the area and structures along the beach. Instead most people seemed more interested in drinking and made so much noise that the DJ could barely be heard. The two hour trip seemed a little long, especially the ride back in the dark.
Me and my family booked to go on a cruise the day before. Never was told they have a Minimum number of people to be on board before they set sail. Was told by the lady at the ticketing that "If you would like to go, ask around and find another 7 people and we will go." was also told not to go to far just encase. When it came time for the boat to leave it did so with no one other than crew on it.
There was no warning from any of the LeBarge crew telling us they were leaving and not waiting anymore. As we walked by the lady at the ticket booth there was no apology or no acknowledgment. We sat in the sun and 100+ degree heat for 60 minutes just to watch the LeBarge leave port. Make sure you have 14 people or they won't set sale. Traveled an hour to watch the boat we wanted to ride on leave and told to Gather Up 7 More People. Waste Of Time!
I took the sightseeing trip on a Wed. afternoon on LeBarge and it was awesome. The speaker,Tina, was funny and very informative. She knew what she was talking about. The bartender,Kelly, was great. She made a frozen drink for us it was fantastic, I didn't know they had frozen drinks. It was the perfect way to see the bay and learn all about it. We saw some great houses and even saw some dolphin. The boat is painted with a tropical theme, very cool.
I can't wait to come back and do it all over again, I have already told my friends and family about it. We will be back to do that trip and the other ones too.
We held a private rehearsal dinner party for 80 on the LeBarge and it could not have been more perfect!! The staff was professional, friendly and extremely helpful! The musician was incredible!! Everyone had a wonderful time....we didn't want it to end!
I would highly recommend this outing for anyone planning something special and fun!!!!!
Thanks LeBarge crew for everything!!
One look at Terry's ponytail we knew we were in for a rockin' night. His Irish accent and quirky sense of humor kept us entertained and groovin' all night!!!! Even with the grand houses and view of a beautiful sunset, Terry was by far the best part of the cruise. WE LOVE YOU TERRY!!!
