Jupiter Outdoor Center was more than great! My coworkers and I went out for an afternoon paddle boarding session and were able to see a mommy manatee and her baby swimming right next to us! The water is so clear just across the channel by the lighthouse you can see so many fish and there are spots to stop and... More

I work a lot, especially in season, but love being outdoors when I can be. My plus one and I wanted to do something for 4th of July and love kayaking but had no real good options. So we thought. Treasure Coast has water issues and the local Palm Beach park we joined as members do not allow for kayak... More

This outfitter on the Jupiter inlet could not be in a better location. Easy access from US1 and easy to find. Well maintained equipment and very friendly and helpful staff set the stage for a spectacular day. It is best to go on a weekday because the boat traffic on the weekends is very heavy which can be a significant... More

We rent 2 single kayaks and we didn't have some informations about the current or suggestions where we should go. We met a guys with a paddle and he said to us about the current and the danger occur when we approach the sea. This important information shall tell us before.

Absolutely wonderful location for kayaking. With the lighthouse right across the water and various islands, mangroves and cool little stops up and down the general Jupiter inlet area this was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. The rental prices were fair and staff helpful in getting us started.

My wife and I recently took a trip to the Jupiter Outdoor Center for one of their tours. We had an amazing time to say the least. The first thing that stuck out to us was how incredibly blue the water was. We had no idea that we could see such clear blue water without going out of the country.... More

Helpful staff and great tour! I was going to visit right around the time of the July 2016 algae outbreak that was affecting St Lucie to the north and West Palm to the south. When I called the center he explained the ecology of the river basin and that they did not have the algae problem. I also got great... More
