I have my own kayak, but when friends visit we rent from Kayak Lake Worth and tour the Snooks. Their boats are very stable and comfortable, and they make it very easy to arrange everything . A couple of hours meandering through the Snook Islands gives you a chance to get away from the crowds and see birds that are not so common, like the American Oystercatcher. And to think, much of this rich eco-system is the result of ecological restoration that provides habit, protection, and beauty. Thanks to Kayak Lake Worth I can share this special area with my friends.

What do you do when it feels like you have done it all, why you Kayak Lake Worth. At least that is what four friends decided to do, and we had amazing time. Emily and Bryce were fantastic with keeping us up to date on weather and launch times. They promised a wonderful getaway and that's what we had. Exploring the little islands that dot the shores, home to conch shell residents and graceful birds. Traversing the rocky slopes, knowing that you reached this little island all under your own power. Kayaking on the intercostal was invigorating, feeling the pull of the current, the crashing of the waves. Powering your way through them both, you might notice the workout if you weren't enjoying it so much. We plan on returning again and bringing a little picnic as it was the only thing missing.

My daughter, and I opted for the Snook Island tour one morning during her visit from a cold place. We had perfect sunny, breezy, not too cold, not too hot, weather, so all the makings for a great morning on the water--and that was just what we got. Bryce and Emily do a great job--they were right there to meet us at the Lake Worth Bridge launch site, had kayaks ready to go, quick review of safety and best way to kayak, and we were off. Although both lead the tours, Bryce was our guide that day, and he gave a very interesting history and background on the Lake Worth estuary. There were lots of birds and it was so scenic and serene to be gliding by mangrove islands built and being built and sites on both sides of Lake Worth. After a brief snack stop and chance to stretch our legs, we returned on the inside of the Snook Islands. As Bryce had said in the beginning, information is given on the first half when you're more out in the waterway, and the return is quiet, unless you have questions. It make for a perfect end to the several hours we were out. This is an activity I would highly recommend. A certain level of fitness is probably needed, especially on days with stronger winds and current than we had. But overall, think most anyone could do this--and it's a wonderfully different way to see South Florida. Please note, my daughter is actually in her late 20's but there didn't seem to be a category for that. Great mother-daughter activity.

This was a great 2 hour expedition. Plenty of birds and boats and some interesting shoreline. The route from the Snook Islands' launch takes you alongside a golf course with a wooded boundary towards the water and a number of small mangrove islands. Plenty of nature, but don't expect 'wilderness'. Lots of crabs, a large sunning iguana and assorted sea life along with some majestic ospreys, herons, pelicans and 'tropical' water birds. The owners, Bryce and Emily were super friendly and helpful. Our 10 year old daughter got a very good workout going solo, our almost 8 year old son joined us in a two seater. Great to combine with some time at the beach, just a couple of minutes away.
