From its home port on Lake Monroe in charming downtown Sanford, the Barbara Lee cruises the St. John’s River, serving up superior food, live music, and dancing. You’ll also have close-up views of the area’s abundant wildlife. You’ll see prolific bird life, majestic great herons, “snake-birds,” osprey, eagles, plus turtles and alligators lazing along the banks. During the cooler months, manatees are often spotted as they move in from the ocean to bask in the warmer river water and snack on water hyacinths.
Upon boarding, and after seating, you’ll be treated to the ship’s refreshments with fruit, salads, and their famous, yummy house-made sticky buns. Be careful not to eat too much - save room for your luscious lunch. The food aboard the Barbara Lee is cooked fresh in the ship’s kitchen and you can choose from delicious entrées including prime rib, salads, and fish. Dessert and beverages are included. In-between all this wonderful array of food, sit inside and enjoy the entertainment or relax on deck for a delightful, narrated four-hour cruise along the St. John’s River.
