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

I had my first experience of paddle boarding with two friends at the Jupiter Outdoor Centre. We took a lesson with Max and then did the Mangrove and Manatee Mystery Tour. It was awesome. Max was great - very patient and knowledgeable. Absolutely going back.

I went to the JOC with a group of 14 and we went on a little kayak trip. The staff from JOC was nice and friendly. The current was pretty strong but despite that we had a great day.

Jupiter Outdoor Center was more than great! My coworkers and I went out for an afternoon paddle boarding session and were able to see a mommy manatee and her baby swimming right next to us! The water is so clear just across the channel by the lighthouse you can see so many fish and there are spots to stop and... More
