• Is it really FREE?

    The #1 question I get asked is if the cruise is really free and the answer is YES! Sarasota is one of the most beautiful places on earth and it’s even more spectacular when you see it from the water. I’m passionate about sharing that experience with people and I love watching the reactions when they see a dolphin jump out of the water or watch the sun fade beneath the horizon. It’s an incredible experience that you won’t soon forget.

    “Am I expected to tip?”

    There is absolutely no obligation to pay any fees of any sort, although tips are always appreciated to help offset operating costs which run about $300 per hour. Should you be kind enough to tip any amount over that amount, it will be donated to Humane Society of Sarasota County, a terrific local organization that I am very passionate about!


    Over $40 Tip will go straight to the Humane Society!

    Philanthropy is the heartbeat of any society. Here is Sarasota, I remember being honored in 2008 a Philanthropy of the year as being recognized for many small efforts lead to a big difference. No amount is every too small, together we all make a difference.

    This is just another unique case of giving back to helping animals.

    You can be a Humane Society of Sarasota County Constant Companion, you’ll save the lives of adoptable animals every single month. Recurring donations are an easy and convenient way to give, and you’ll help homeless pets 365 days a year. Monthly gifts are so important to HSSC because they provide the sustaining resources we need to help animals. Should you consider to donate for your Sunset Cruise over $40, your proceeds will be donated to the Sarasota Humane society. That is a ONE-TIME donation. Should you wish to give on a regular basis we hope you will consider them and help us all in the Sarasota County area.

    For as little as $10 a month, you can make a difference!

    $15 a month will microchip three pets, ensuring they'll never be lost.

    $25 a month will feed one pet for a month, providing the nutrition they deserve.

    $50 a month will provide spay/neuter services for one pet, moving us one step closer to ending overpopulation.

    $100 a month will provide supplies to foster an infant litter of puppies or kittens, helping these fragile animals survive
