PAN AMERICAN • CAPE FLORIDA
SEA PLANE BASE
We continue south and circle many small islands
adjacent to the mainland, passing the Biscayne Yacht
Club and U. S. Coast Guard seaplane base. We approach
the greatest of all international airway systems, the Pan-
American, with airlanes extending thousands of miles
between Central and South America, Europe, Asia, and
many other foreign lands. Miami's proximity to South
America has fostered the growth of a large Latin American colony, and made her an important center for Pan-
American relations. It is a sight worth while to see these
great airliners sailing gracefully through the air and
gliding down to the peaceful waters of Bay Biscayne,
terminating at Miami. This thrilling experience is all
the more striking when seen from the observation deck
of the Yacht "Dixie".
Leaving the mainland and Miami in the background, crossing the bay at its widest point, our cruise
now takes us to Cape Florida—a section rich in romance
and historic atmosphere. A former pirate stronghold,
dating back to the Spanish main. We follow the route
of Ponce de Leon along the inland coast of Biscayne
Bay. You will marvel at the colorful scenery and sparkling beauty of the crystal-clear water, dotted with islands
and keys, enchanting and alluring. Standing like a sentinel and towering majestically before us, at the extreme
southern tip of Biscayne Key we sight the ancient lighthouse of historic fame, the scene of many naval battles
and Indian massacre. At this historic spot many ships
came to grief. This is a sight never to be forgotten, also
a famous landmark that can only be seen by boat. A
good view of the broad Atlantic can be had from this

Leaving Cape Florida, we continue North, following
the inland route adjacent to the Florida Keys, cruising
the opposite shore of Bay Biscayne. We complete our
tour by showing many uninhabited islands, covered with
dense tropical growth and mangrove swamps. As we
wend our way homeward, we view the Matheson Morro-
can Castle and coconut plantation. Here are seen hundreds of coconut palms growing in their natural state.
Virginia Key and Bears Cut are a few of the interesting
sights that are included on the return.
Insist upon the Yacht "Dixie" the boat that has a
character all its own, a unique air of southern hospitality
and an unmistakable feeling of friendly interest in the
enjoyment and comfort of every passenger. A deluxe
cruise that has a distinctive personal touch, plus service
that is courteous and efficient.
