Nothin’s more fun than messin’ around on someone else’s boat, while learning history!
The Historical Society of Sarasota County is hosting our 23rd Cruise and Tour of Sarasota Bay on the LeBarge tour boat on Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 11 am to 1 pm. The cruise will feature narration by Harold Bubil, Real Estate Editor of the Sarasota Herald Tribune and a Sarasotan Extraordinaire, for the past 56 years. He will focus on waterfront real estate history, famous homes, what’s for sale, construction issues, flood zones, dredging and filling and related yammering! There will be a complimentary continental breakfast buffet with coffee and a cash bar.
The cruise tour has been a favorite outing for residents as well as tourists who want
to learn more about the interesting adventures of Sarasota’s early settlers and the
characters who helped make Sarasota the vibrant, cultural city that it is today.
Tickets are $40 per person. A VIP pass is also available for $50 which provides early
boarding privileges and a complimentary beverage from the bar (limited to beer, wine, soda and bottled water). Reservations are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
Please send checks with the names of all your guests to the Historical Society of Sarasota County, PO Box 1632, Sarasota, FL 34230. For Visa/MC or Discover purchases or for questions, please contact HSOSC office 941-364-9076 Monday – Friday from 10a – 2p .
