Kayaking and canoeing are great outdoor activities that you and your family can do together. The St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park offers a scenic route for you to paddle down while experiencing interesting plants and wildlife.  It is a scenic kayak trail in St. Lucie County that meanders through mangroves teeming with fish, birds and other wildlife. The kayak trail is on the undeveloped wild northern end of Jupiter Island. From the kayak trail you can find a narrow path to a spectacular beach where you can walk for miles and not see another person.

St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park is located about a half-hour north of Jupiter. It’s the northern tip of a barrier island ending where the St. Lucie River enters the ocean. As one of the few undeveloped barrier islands on Florida’s east coast, it’s a rare and special place. There are no roads on this part of the island and no bridges to reach it. The park adjoins Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge, so it is well-insulated from people and development. Access is only by boat.

On the island, there are restrooms, picnic shelters and a 3,300-foot boardwalk connecting the dock and beach. A free tram whisks visitor from Intracoastal to ocean from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and holidays. The best time to leave is two hours before high tide, because that gives you four hours to paddle and explore.

A sandy beach-like launch site is located directly across the park in a small Martin County park at the end of Cove Road.
