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

I work a lot, especially in season, but love being outdoors when I can be. My plus one and I wanted to do something for 4th of July and love kayaking but had no real good options. So we thought.

Well maintained equipment and very friendly and helpful staff set the stage for a spectacular day. It is best to go on a weekday because the boat traffic on the weekends is very heavy which can be a significant... More

We rent 2 single kayaks and we didn't have some informations about the current or suggestions where we should go. We met a guys with a paddle and he said to us about the current and the danger occur when we approach the sea. This important information shall tell us before.
