LOVE STREET OUTDOOR CENTER guides will take you on an hourlong boat ride from Jupiter Inlet waterways on the pristine Intracoastal Waterway to the Preserve on the northern tip of Jupiter Island, where the St. Lucie River enters the Atlantic Ocean.
Make your kayaking in Jupiter reservation here.
After docking at the Preserve, you’ll walk a tree-lined, shady boardwalk through lush mangrove forests and hammocks of live oaks, cabbage palms, paradise trees and wild limes to a neatly preserved Atlantic Ocean beach, a first stop on your kayaking in Jupiter excursion.
Along the 3/4-mile boardwalk, you’ll likely see lots of wildlife. There’s long-legged ibises, colorful butterflies, spindly spiders, wide-winged ospreys hunting for fish and raccoons roustabouting through thick mangroves.
