Salvador Dali Museum & Tropical Luncheon Cruise
Take a “Selfie” with Dali!
Upon arrival in Madiera Beach we’ll board the Calypso Breeze for a 1 1/2 hour cruise of the waters on Florida’s Gulf Coast. On board, you’ll enjoy a delicious tropical island style buffet with complimentary beer, wine, rum punch or soda.
Next we off to the extraordinary and unique Salvador Dali Museum. The following is a write up that appeared on Smithsonian.com about the exhibit: “Salvador Dali wasn't exactly modest. And he’ll tell you so, too, face to face at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here, the Spanish surrealist is alive and well, ready to talk to you in person about his art and his processes. Well, sort of. This Dali is a reanimated version, brought to life through the magic of artificial intelligence. Three interactive video panels showing a life-size Dali, standing 5'8" tall, located throughout the museum comprise the exhibit. (including Dali's paintings and sketches, photographs, sculptural objects, two tech-enhanced paintings allowing visitors to put themselves inside the image, and a virtual reality experience of walking through Dali's 1934 painting "Archeological Reminiscence of Millet's Angelus”). Each one offers a different experience when you push a doorbell on the panel to get Dali’s attention.” Lunch will be on your own in the on-site cafe.

Taste authentic Cuban cuisine while learning about Little Havana’s culture and heritage. This exciting Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour explores the rich history and culinary delights of a vibrant neighborhood. We will taste authentic Cuban cuisine and listen to the stories behind those doing the cooking. We’ll learn about spiritual beliefs the community practices including Santeria; visit a cigar factory, explore Domino Park and The Cuba Ocho Art Museum. And - We will savor some of the Best Bites in Town such as a picadillo-stuffed empanada at one of the oldest restaurants in the area. Filled with rustic charm and graced by a large illustration of Cuba across the walls, this establishment forms part of the daily routine of most Little Havana locals. Although the El Pub Restaurant isn’t La Bodeguita in Cuba, Hemingway’s favorite watering hole, the drink at this local Taverna is as close as you can get without a passport. Virgin drinks are available also. Next we’ll visit the Ball and Chain, an authentic Cubano restaurant painted with music memorabilia from Cuba’s glorious past. According to the Travel Channel, you must have a Ventanita - This dark, potent liquid is Miami’s everyday fuel. Similar to an espresso, this ultra-sweet and revitalizing shot of energy is a Cuban staple. For a sweet bite we’ll sample a guava pastelito from the Yisell Bakery. All this and so much more! What a fun way to learn about our Cuban neighbors.
