KAYAK – to kayak or canoe is very popular on local waterways. Jupiter and Tequesta are located on the Loxahatchee River by Jupiter Inlet. The Loxahatchee River is one of only two nationally recognized Wild and Scenic Rivers in Florida. The second one is Wekiva River in Central Florida – north of Orlando.

There are both public and private places to launch kayaks along the Loxahatchee River. Waterfront communities like Tequesta Country Club have neighborhood launch locations for kayaking. Kayakers also enjoy the turquoise waters of the Intracoastal and Atlantic Ocean. The average water temperature is around 85° F (26° C).

Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Tequesta/Hobe Sound– Located on the north end of the Loxahatchee River and accessible from the water or by car from US1 in Tequesta. Follow the mangrove up the river to see wildlife such as alligators, deer, bobcat, coyotes, wild boar, manatees, turtles, tortoises, herons, egrets, ospreys, bald eagles and fish. Trapper Nelson’s cabin is along this fork of the river with picnic tables and restrooms.
