1st time visit and loved it. From jet skis to snorkeling to mansions to boats playing music to being able to get pizza delivered to your boat to the beautiful sunsets to being able to just lay on the beach and relax to seeing JFKs secret bunker. What a great place to visit!

An amazing place to spend the whole day snorkeling or just relaxing on the beach. I've seen a variety of gorgeous fish in the lagoon. Amazing scenery and very quiet!

Kayak across the channel to snorkel. The water was clear and the fish beautiful. We were surprised to learn that the Gulf Stream hits the continent right at that spot. It was interesting to notice the increase in water temperature as we snorkeled around.

The water taxi wasn't running during the week so we rented a kayak from a place located just over the bridge in Rivera Beach. We picked up the kayak just under the bridge and kayaked over to the...

We have been looking for the best place to snorkel from shore--this is it! After a quick boat ride and a short walk, you will find the most tranquil spot to snorkel, picnic and lay in the sun. Make sure you bring your own food and drinks. Also, you can rent snorkeling equipment from the boat taxi.

Then, at the island, there were paved walkways all over the island. There were multiple beaches, many of which had nice snorkeling spots. There were places to... More

This was the highlight of our family FL trip. We traveled with my 2 year old toddler, my parents and my teen age brother. The day spent on peanut island is everyone's favorite. Snorkeling was absolutely gorgeous. One tip is to make sure that you bring your water shoes, the bottom is rocky, which is to be expected when snorkeling.... More
