If you don't have a boat you can only go over on Saturday or Sunday when there is a free boat that takes passengers. You have to know when it goes. It does not go often and only holds 12-14 people. The island is lovely to walk around. We saw many raccoons wandering around during the day and were told... More

We went with a whole group of family members ranging in age from 4 to 94 and everyone had a great time. The boat dock is a little tricky to find but well worth the effort. It is a short (and free) boat trip and then you can walk and picnic an see all kinds of wildlife, as long as... More

A nice little park for a short trip, a picnic, or just a walk in the park! The ferry dock was closed but they had an alternate site, which actually worked out better, because we got a 20 minute tour of the coastal waterway on the way to the island.It is the only wilderness area in Southern Florida, it is...

Four adults took the free ferry across to the island. Great 20 minute run with views of Boca and Deerfield Beach with two accommodating and cheerful young men operating the boat. We walked around the trails for 1.5 hours and although did not see a lot of wildlife enjoyed the tranquility. A great way to spend a Sunday morning.

We caught the ferry boat at Pioneer park as Sullivan outlet is under repairs. What a lucky break as the the pick up location now takes 20 by boat to get to the island and you get a mini tour of the intercostal homes. The hike itself was very easy for all ages . Lots of shade and we were... More

On weekends the town runs a boat, and unless you have your own boat, there is no other way to visit the island. During the first part of 2016 (and until the fall we are told) the boat departs from Pioneer Park. This is actually a big plus since the two minute ride is now about 20 minutes and passes... More

Hidden in plain view. I finally made it out to "Capone Island". We actually paddled out there and had a nice walk on the nature trail. Lots of native plants to read up on. I believe you can rent space, so a barbecue is definitely in the works. Find the geocaches while you're there!
