Thanksgiving Cruise

November 24 - November 28

Cruise Leader: To Be Determined

Meet us at Pelican Bay to celebrate Turkey Day!  We’ll spend a relaxing few days at this beautiful anchorage and head to Cabbage Key via dinghy on Thanksgiving Day for a fabulous turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  No muss, no fuss just great food and great company.

Arrangements have been made for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday for 2:00 PM at Cabbage Key. Dinner costs $??. Remember, there’s only one check, so you will want to bring cash.

This is a very flexible cruise. Most boats arrive Wednesday afternoon. There are usually a few members who opt to have Thanksgiving dinner at home and then head up to Pelican Bay sometime afterward. A few boats have even stayed over at Cabbage Key’s dock, or anchored at Useppa (just across the channel) without coming to Pelican Bay. The choice is yours.

There’s plenty to do at Pelican Bay with exploring in your dingy, access to Cayo Costa beach. Our tradition of happy hours on a boat, beach, and/or manatee hole will likely be curtailed this year due to COVID-19. If the stars align properly, we may even head up to Lover’s Lane and the private beach.

A LATE ADDITION: on Friday the we will do the rum tasting we had intended to do off of St. James City. Bring your best bottle of sipping rum and we will find a way crown a champion in the year of Covid.  It’ll either be on dog beach or Trust Me depending on how many warm bodies and how comfortable everyone is.

Here’s a link to that handy Pelican Bay Anchorage Chart.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: Please, do not call Cabbage Key to make or change dinner reservations for the CMCS group. In the past, this has always confused our reservation. Please make your reservation thru our cruise leaders. ONLY our Cruise Leaders will be modifying the CMCS dinner reservation at Cabbage Key. We’ve tried to make it easy for you to make your reservation by using the handy RSVP form shown below. Simply type your information in the boxes, and then click on “Submit RSVP”.

If you plan to meet up with the Society at any time during this weekend, please submit the following online RSVP, or contact our cruise leaders (contact information is down below).
