The total drop of the river from Melbourne to Jacksonville is less than 30 feet, or about one inch per mile, making it one of the “laziest” rivers in the world. Meals include choice of 5 entrees, salad and dessert. The price includes bus, tour guide, cruise, lunch and museum after cruise - it does not include gratuity for the driver.

July 21-The Dali Museum in St Pete
Clyde Butcher: Visions of Dali's Spain
For Salvador Dalí, the landscape of his homeland was always an essential feature of his work and outlook on life. Nearly two years ago, The Dalí Museum sought out Butcher to use his talents to capture a body of images of Dalí’s Mediterranean home, featuring some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. Butcher traveled to the village of Cadaqués, where Dalí spent summers while growing up, Dalí’s house in Port Lligat and the rugged region of Cap de Creus – all areas that are prominently featured in Dalí’s works. The thoughtfully curated collection will feature 41 photos that take viewers on a journey through the Catalonian region, with images ranging from an intimate 2 feet to a panoramic 8 feet. The exhibit will be Butcher’s first photographic exhibition of Spain, as well as the first time he has been commissioned to photograph an area that influenced another artist “We’re dedicated to sharing the art, life and world of Dalí with our community, “said Peter Tush, Dali Museum Curator of Education. “This show allows us to do just that in an immersive, yet intimate way. Butcher captured the sublime beauty of Dalí’s Mediterranean world in exquisite detail, providing a portal between their two worlds for our guests to explore.”
