About Us

My name is Patrick Baynes.

I've been working in travel, tourism, and hospitality since 2009 - first in Florida, then in Hotels in New New York City. Additionally I worked for 5 years for Citi Concierge curating experiences and booking hotels and accommodations all over the globe at some of the most renowned hotels and restaurants in the world. I also had a service called Handshake New York in New York City that curated the New York City tourism experience.

What I realized over the years is that I wouldn't want to work in any other industry or line of work.


The goal of See Sarasota is to create a resource and service for visitors, locals and part time residents.

While I am new to Sarasota -- I believe I provide a fresh perspective to the City. 

I believe Sarasota - with its favorable climate, coastal ambiance, relaxed people, and amazing amenities - is the perfect place to operate this tourism business.

I hope you decide to experience through the lens of See Sarasota.

All of the tours I present on this site are tours that I conduct myself or through trusted partners.

When I am not conducting business, I am researching, reading, and looking for options and opportunities to present my clients.
