Lighthouses have guided mariners along Florida’s coast for centuries. Many do not know that Florida is home to 30 historic lighthouses, many of them are nearly a century old themselves with the oldest dating back to 1838. There were several others but over the years have fallen victim to erosion, fires, storms, and demolition.

The lighthouses range in height from 28 feet high to 175 feet high, almost half of the remaining historic lighthouses in Florida are over 100 feet tall. The Lighthouses are now operated by the Coast Guard but that wasn’t always the case. The federal Lighthouse Service and the Coast Guard merged in 1939 and today many of the Lighthouses have been preserved and are open to the public to tour and visit.

Jupiter has gorgeous spring weather and it’s a great reason to get outside.  Try kayak fishing in the Atlantic Ocean or Intracoastal waterway.  Kayak fishing is much different than fishing from a motor boat, canoe or the shore.  This time of year, you can stay very close to the beach and catch a variety of fish.

Contact a local kayak renter or dealer, like Jupiter Outdoor Center at the Jupiter Inlet, to see if they offer any fishing instruction or lessons.  The kayak community is very welcoming. The Jupiter community is based on our relationship with our amazing waterways. There is no better way to enjoy what Jupiter has to offer than to rent a kayak or stand up paddleboard and undertake your own adventure on the waterways.
