A Tiki Boat cruise on a Cruisin’ Tiki Boat in Naples, Florida for six (6) people
Dinner poolside, paired with Waddle Creek wines at the home of NCEF Trustees Kristine & Chris Williams
     for six (6) people

Tiki Bars are enjoying a comeback, and no wonder: they’re fun, casual and exotic; they give us a chance to imbibe the cocktails we used to see our parents drinking, paired with a collection of Polynesian hors d’oeuvres. If you think finding a first-rate Tiki Bar on land is hard enough, try locating one on the water.

Cruisin Tikis was the creation of captains Melissa & John Paul Wilinski. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a floating Tiki Bar that launches from 360 Market Restaurant on Bayview Drive. Cruises typically last 90 minutes and traverse the canals and back waterways of Naples Bay. The winning bidder’s party of six will relax and imbibe under the thatched straw roof, then return to land for a poolside dinner at the home of two generous NCEF Trustees, Kristine & Chris Williams. Your meal will be accompanied by the wines of Wattle Creek, part of the portfolio of estates created by Jean-Charles Boisset. Wattle Creek is a Sonoma County winery offering a full range of white and reds from the Russian River, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and Knights Valley appellations.

INSIDER’S INFO: Cruise and dinner to be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date and expires on January 31,2021
