When we were told the same good people behind Guanabanas Restaurant in Jupiter were opening a new waterfront dining destination in Stuart, we had to venture north to check out their newest creation, TideHouse.

Arriving by boat, we were pleased to find quick and easy dockage at Harborage Marina and Yacht Club, with a depth of about 6-8’ throughout the entire marina making it a simple option for a larger boat as well. They offer a single floating dock on the west side of the main marina dock for anyone to use, as well as 3 first-come-first-serve boat slips.

Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world 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 pelagic fish species as close as ¼ mile offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience. The main target species in our area are mahi-mahi, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, sailfish, snook, snapper, grouper, and tripletail. Swordfish charters are also available for a pricier fee since a lot more specialty knowledge and work goes into a successful trip.

 If you have been to the beach lately, you've probably seen the incredible amount of seaweed washed up on our coastline. South Florida is currently experiencing substantial amounts of seaweed beaching up on the coastline. Due to this influx of seaweed, Palm Beach County has taken the initiative to protect turtle season and keep locals happy.

On the north end of the county, researchers at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Juno Beach, are keeping an eye on it, making sure it doesn’t negatively impact nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings. The influx of seaweed is called sargassum and occurs naturally. Blooms that are happening offshore, and getting pushed onto the beaches, it is all based on winds and tides and surf.  When the area experiences storms, it

Enjoy an adult beverage, live music and fresh air at the Sunset Celebration, Sailfish Marina, every Thursday evening.  Thirsty Thursdays are a local’s favorite.  Listen as Jimmy Buffet style music and/or steel drums play on the boardwalk.

Sunset at Sailfish offers a classic South Florida setting of fresh seafood restaurant and yachting marina. Spot lazy pelicans bobbing around in the water hopping to catch a scrap of fish food. The restaurant is on the Intracoastal Waterway, north of the Lake Worth inlet and a bit north of Palm Beach. Come by boat, car and just sit back and watch all the boats cruise by. Choose a formal dining experience or grab a famous “Grouper Dog” or basket of Conch Fritters for a night reminiscent of an evening in Key West.
