My wife and I went the last weekend in January and we stopped in to greet the folks there and were treated to a plethora of knowledge about the local area. We had wanted to see Manatees and they let us know they had a number of different tours that we could go on or (I really liked this) we... More

Huge waste of $85!! We really wanted to like it and we're excited about going. However they canceled one Sunday on us and then we rescheduled two Sundays later just to find out they almost canceled that one too. We then went on the tour for almost two hours and saw absolutely nothing after being told we would and it... More

This is my favorite place to paddle board or kayak in Jupiter! The staff is helpful at pointing out which areas to visit according to the tides/what we want to see. I've seen turtles & manatees multiple times I've gone. A beautiful spot to spend the day and cool Resturant's next door for a relaxing drink after a day on... More

We had so much fun. Max was awesome. We didn't see any manatees at first and she was determined that we would. Plenty of other creatures to see in the meantime - sea turtles and sea cucumbers and a nice day on the water. Towards the end of the tour we found lots of manatees! Despite the time being up,...

We went to the Jupiter Outdoor Centre with the intention to see manatee. Unfortunately this was one of the days where they did not want to come out to play. We had a nice kayak ride around the bay - saw stingrays, different kinds of fish, sea urchins, etc. Max was our guide. She was very knowledgeable and we appreciated... More

Had a beautiful day out on the water. The location is perfectly situated; close to many natural areas. The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Love bringing visitors to this gem. Once you are done, there is Square Grouper right next door!

I originally was out for an adventure for my granddaughter however, it ended up a fun, thrilling day for all. We went kayaking and saw manatees, stingrays, star fish, turtles and loads of fish! Our guide was very nice and attentive, the 1 1/2 hour tour was just perfect! It was nice to get there and our kayaks were ready,... More

Booking online was fast and easy, and when we arrived, they were ready for us. They provided helpful hints in crossing the busy Jupiter inlet channel, the best spots to head to, and what to watch out for with boat traffic. They also will happily hold keys and other essentials you do not want to get wet. We booked the... More
