Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world and for good reason. The Gulf Stream, a warm and swift Atlantic Ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, is closest to land near Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet, providing abundant amounts of fish about a ¼ mile to 3 miles offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience.

Charter services and accommodations vary, so hopefully, this guide helps narrow down your choice. Most charter trips include everything you need to fish except for optional live bait, food, drinks, and gratuities. A few charters even include live bait and bottled water!

Be sure to tip your captain and crew if you have a

Here are some fun facts about Palm Beach County that you may not know.

Ocean & Beaches

The county has 47 miles of pristine Atlantic coastline with a close proximity to the Gulf Stream which gives the ocean a nice refreshing temperature year-round. A diver's dream, there are 20 natural reefs to explore near the shoreline plus dozens of artificial reefs and shipwrecks. The Atlantic coast is nicknamed the Gold Coast because of shipwrecks dating back to the 1800s which still lures treasure hunters in search of gold from sunken Spanish galleons. North Palm Beaches are important sea turtle nesting sites with anywhere from 14-17,000 nests counted every season. The four-mile stretch of Singer Island alone accounts for 5 percent of the world's Loggerhead

When we head out to the sandbar I know it’s going to be a long day of fun and relaxation, but the one thing I struggle with is leaving my ever-obedient sweet dog behind. That’s a long time for her to be sitting at home, especially when I’ve been at work all week. I usually try to bring her to a friend or family member’s house that enjoys her company, but it’s nice to know that we live in a place where most sandbars are dog-friendly!

Here are a few dog-friendly sandbars that are a perfect spot at low tide for your furry friend to run and play with other well-behaved dogs:

Near Jupiter Inlet past the restaurants on your left and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse on your right, the Jupiter Sandbar is made up of soft sand and a little

Thanks to the Floridian Aquifer, the state of Florida has literally hundreds of freshwater springs, 33 of which are first-magnitude. First-magnitude means these springs discharge massive amounts of water which, for us, means they're large enough to swim in. These springs are crystal clear with a nice refreshing temperature of 72-74 year-round. 

Most of Florida's larger springs are north of I4 which runs diagonally from Tampa to Daytona Beach. This is because the Floridan Aquifer is closer to the surface in that area, and runs deeper the more south you go. South Florida residents can easily take a day trip to any of the state's best springs, which are most central. 

Here are some of the coolest and closest springs for SoFlo residents:

The iconic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is prepping for new projects on the property. The new projects are aimed to help preserve the land from every changing environment and to help preserve Jupiter’s history.

The Lighthouse is surrounded by more than 120 acres of native habitat and the Lighthouse and Museum is always finding ways to enhance and improve the land and surroundings.

The historic lighthouse was constructed in 1860 and was used to save ships from wrecking in the reefs offshore. The site has been used and eventually included a U.S. Weather Bureau Station, a Navy radio station during WWII, and a U.S. Air Force missile tracking station. The Lighthouse today still operates as a navigation aid for those on the water.

In the 1970’s, the

Whether you’re fishing, diving, or just cruising, if you’re heading offshore there’s a lot involved when prepping for a day on the boat. There’s one crucial part of “equipment” you’re not going to want to forget- subs! Sub sandwiches wrapped in deli paper and sealed in a Ziplock are the easiest lunch to throw in the cooler, not to mention their deliciously fresh hours later when you keep dressing on the side. From the Floridian favorite “Pub Subs” to the best fresh-baked sweet bread, here’s a list of the best delis in North Palm Beach County to grab pre-packed lunch for everyone on the boat!

Publix Deli

Have you ever heard the expression “drinking the kool-aid”? Well, Floridians are that crazy about Pub Subs. Whether it’s because of convenience

The Lake Trail is a 5.5-mile path running north to south along the barrier island of Palm Beach. The scenic town is known for its upscale estates, tall palm trees, blue ocean views and beautiful landscaping- which all make the Lake Trail an excellent route to endeavor. Along the way, bikers will pass 18 eye-catching sites including the West Palm Beach skyline, Society of the Four Arts, The Breakers and historic Kennedy bunker on Peanut Island. 

The towering age-old coconut palms on the island create a nice shady path (particularly in the morning) for riders to get a glimpse of exclusive high-end backyards of impressive estates. Sites like the Estee Lauder Mansion and Flagler Museum are an incredible display of Gilded Age architecture and history in
