    Register


    Tesla fans are invited to join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts at the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park for an informal meet and greet at the historic Wakulla Springs Lodge.

    This is a public event, you don’t have to be a club member to participate.

    We will gather initially outside and then move into the lobby for the meet and greet. Come prepared to enjoy a time of sharing experiences with fellow Tesla owners.

    At 11:00 am a small dining room off of the main dining room in the Lodge has been reserved for our group. You may order from the menu. There is also a snack bar in the gift shop across the lobby from the dining room.

    Attendees will arrange to participate in the various ticketed park activities on their own and will leave the group meetup as their reservations require.

    Guest rooms, the dining room and soda fountain are open at the Lodge.

    COVID-19 Considerations

    This includes an inside event. If you have NOT been vaccinated the CDC considers eating indoors in a group an unsafe activity. If you have not been vaccinated, or are an at-risk individual, we strongly recommend that you DO NOT attend the indoor group portion of this event.

    We expect that each family will be seated at separate tables if desired. 

    Here is a link to the Lodge's COVID-19 & SAFETY guidelines.

    All guests aboard the river boat tours are required to wear a mask.

    Park Activities

    The entrance fee to the park is $6.00 per car.

    Glass Bottom Boat Tours require advance reservations. Prices are the same as the River Boat tours. Call 850-421-2000 to connect with park personnel.

    Wakulla Springs is home to the world's largest and deepest freshwater springs, the sapphire water of Wakulla Springs boasts manatees, alligators, and a host of diverse wildlife. Several movies have used the springs for location shoots.

    Wakulla Springs is located 14 miles (23 km) south of Tallahassee, Florida, and 5 miles (8.0 km) east of Crawfordville in Wakulla County, Florida, on County Road 267 (Bloxham Cut Off Rd) just East of Hwy 61.

    About The Lodge at Wakulla Springs


    Surrounded by 6,000 acres of pristine forest, the Lodge at Wakulla Springs is North Florida's castle. Built in 1937 by industrialist Edward Ball, the Lodge is one of the most beautiful buildings of its period and one of the few where you can stay overnight. Located in the middle of Wakulla Springs State Park, the Lodge's 27 rooms overlook one of the country's largest springs. Whether you enjoy fine dining in the Edward Ball Dining Room or want to cool off with an ice cream at the world's longest marble soda fountain, the Lodge's timeless beauty surrounds you. Nature, luxury, history, and comfort—all can be found at the Lodge at Wakulla Springs.

    Electric Charging

    The Tallahassee Supercharger Station is about 20 miles north of the Lodge.

    ________________________________________________________________

    Join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts aboard the beautiful Enchanted Princess Cruise Ship on February 28, 2022, for a 10-Day Southern Caribbean Voyager Departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    We had such a blast cruising the Caribbean that we decided to plan another cruise this time for 10 days aboard the spectacular Enchanted Princess, the newest ship in the Princess fleet.

    Departing:  

    Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) on Monday afternoon, February 28, 2022, at 4:00 pm and returning on Thursday morning, March 10, 2022 at 6:00 am.

    Ports of Call

    Princess Cays, Bahamas; St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; Antigua; St. Lucia; Barbados; St. Kitts.

    Click here for the Ship’s Itinerary

    Reserving a Stateroom

    After you register to attend this event, you will receive an automated message with booking instructions to join our Tesla Group package. Due to COVID cabin fever, there is a high demand for cruising, and staterooms are booking up quickly.  Our Princess agent will be on the lookout for promotions or discounts, and if they materialize, she will apply them to our group package. We recommend that you book early to reserve your stateroom. You will have until November 2021 to cancel and get your deposit returned without penalty.

    COVID-19 Considerations

    We are proceeding with this club event.

    Initially, we scheduled a 7-day Caribbean cruise onboard this ship for February 13, 2021. However, due to COVID-19 considerations, Princess Cruises canceled it.  We now are planning a 10-day Caribbean cruise, more than a year later, on February 28, 2022, to allow ample time for vaccines to mitigate the danger in cruising.

    Here is a Notice to Passengers from Princess dated February 3, 2021, regarding COVID-19 and Cruise Ship Travel.

    Group Events

    Whether we organize group events together will depend on how many sign up for this cruise. We expect that COVID-19 considerations will be mitigated by late February 2021 and cruising will be permitted by the CDC. Nevertheless, depending on the course of the pandemic, there may still be requirements for some level of COVID-19 protocols that could limit our degree of social interaction.

    Each port of call can be experienced individually or through the excursions that Princess offers. 

    Cruise Parking

    Princess ships generally berth at Pier 2/Terminal 2 in Port Everglades. On days when multiple ships are in port, another berth may be assigned. Ship pier/terminal assignments are posted at the entrance of the port and will direct you to the appropriate location. 

    There is a 6-level parking garage adjacent to terminal 2 that costs $15 per day. (Price is subject to change.)

    Nearest Superchargers

    Terminal 2 is about 10 miles east of the Plantation Supercharger Station.  It is about 15 miles north of the Aventura Supercharger Station and about 34 miles south of the Delray Beach Supercharger Station.  If you plan to leave your Tesla parked for the 10 days unplugged, it would be prudent to leave it with an adequate charge because it will lose charge during the cruise.

    Hotels

    For anyone interested in staying at a hotel the night before departure, Hyatt has two nearby hotels with Tesla Destination Chargers.   

    Hyatt House Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port

    Hyatt Place Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port

    Both hotels are about 6 miles from the cruise port. Their locations are programmed into your Tesla's navigation system.

     

    We look forward to seeing many of you on this Cruise!
