When staying in a Jennette Properties rental, it is not just a vacation, it is an experience! Sarasota and Bradenton are full of amazing opportunities to get out there and enjoy some fun in the sun. Boating and water sports are a way of life here on the Sun Coast. We invite you to enjoy them too.
The Marina Jack II
The Marina Jack II offers lunch & dinner sightseeing cruises through the intracoastal and the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy a day on the water and take in the amazing views only available by boat. You will see the beautiful Sarasota skyline, gorgeous waterfront homes, wildlife and possibly a few dolphins.
The Marina Jack II offers interior & exterior viewing for your convenience. They offer lunch and dinner menus and beverages. The cruise is great for a day with the family or date night. You can catch this cruise at the Downtown Sarasota Bayfront.
Mote Marine Eco-Boat Tours
If you have visited Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium in Sarasota then you may already be familiar with the Eco-Boat Tour. Many people don’t realize you can take the boat tour separately. This boat tour is an exciting adventure for the whole family. The Eco-Boat tour is a guided tour that allows for sightseeing adventures and a marine biology experience. The tour is narrated by a biologist who tells you some fun facts about the water, sea & wildlife. During the tour, the biologist throws out a net to see what sea creatures they can bring aboard. Passengers have the opportunity to get hands on with whatever sea life is brought on board. The tour also stops at Edwards Island and allows passengers to go ashore and explore. If you are looking for something a little different this is a great way to spend a few hours on the water.
LaBarge Tropical Cruises
Looking for a more casual experience and an opportunity to have some fun? This is the cruise for you. LaBarge offers 3 cruising opportunities. The morning Dolphin & Manatee Watch Cruise, the afternoon Sightseeing & Nature Cruise and the evening Tropical Sunset Cruise with live entertainment. The tropical decor of this cruise is so much fun and even features real Palm Trees! There is a full bar and a light menu available which includes Pirate Snacks, Buccaneer Platter, Mermaid Treats and Tropical Nachos! Whether you are looking for a day cruise or to dance into the sunset, LaBarge has something for everyone.
Cruising and exploring are great days on the water, but some prefer to feel the wind in their sails! Sarasota also offers some great sailing opportunities. Join Captain Tim and First Mate Jan aboard the Key Breeze, a 41’ Morgan Yacht. Group and private charter are available at Key Sailing. Sail off for a one of a kind experience and enjoy a cozy atmosphere, music, snacks, sunsets and chocolate!
You can also sail on Latitude, a Catalina 30. Latitude Sailing Charters offers three sailing opportunities; Bareboat where you set your own schedule, Captained Sails in Sarasota Bay and Sunset Cruises. Create a beautiful memory with friends and family aboard one of these amazing sailboats.
Causally taking in the sights may not be your idea of fun. Do you need more of an adrenaline rush? Parasailing may be the perfect excursion for you! Take in the view from 1200 feet of town line at Siesta Key Watersports! The boat can accommodate up to 12 people ages 5 to 105 and makes for a fun filled activity for the whole family.
Another great option is YOLO Adventures! Soar high above Anna Maria Island and Cortez, FL. Spend an hour on the water and share a lifetime of memories. “You Only Live Once” right? In addition, if you have a fear of heights, you can opt for a fishing charter instead. YOLO adventures offer Family Fun Fishing, Inshore Fishing, Offshore Fishing and Tarpon Fishing from a 29-foot Stamas named Lil Toot.
Vacationing in Siesta Key is one of the best experiences you will ever have. From the white sands on the World-Famous Siesta Key beach, to shopping, art, culture and adventure we have it all. Don’t just be a “landlubber” during your stay here in Sarasota, be sure to include some boat excursions. Most importantly, we want you to have a great time and enjoy your stay with us.
