Riverbend Park: tt's beautiful, non-Disney Florida at it's best. All kinds of wildlife--alligators, turtles, birds--while paddling on a very lovely fresh water river. The forest is astounding. Definitely a must-see to get away from the madding crowds in Orlando!

After researching a new place to go kayaking, Loxahatchee River looked like an interesting place to try. We didn't know what to expect but it turned into an amazing adventure. Free parking and free kayaks/canoe launch is available. I highly recommend water, food, and sunscreen as this is a day adventure. We saw turtles of all sizes, peacocks, water birds, and multiple alligators!! Make sure you know how far you would like to kayak/canoe before starting, because paddling back up river is a bit challenging.

This is a must do trip. Up the river to a a little boys fantasy hide a way. Alligators, birds and turtles guaranteed. This is Florida at its best and most natural. Escape the strip malls and beach for a real well guided memorable adventure. No swimming. Birds, trees and flowers galore. Do it.

This is the Old Florida, we have kayaked from River Bend to Jonathon Dickenson twice and both trips have been different. It is a difficult trip but well worth it. On our first trip we saw a lot of wildlife and alligators the second time we saw only one gator and several manatees.
Make sure that you check the tide chart when you get into Jonathon Dickenson if it is an inoming tide the last 2 hours can be hard as you have to fight against the incoming tide.
We did encounter several downed trees that we had to manage to get over be careful as this is prime alligator habitat.

After paddling downstream on the Loxahatchee River from River Bend Park, you go under the Indiantown Road bridge and enter the Cypress Canopy with lots of wildlife along the way. There is a small damn that you can paddle over or use the ramp to carry your kayak around it. Most people turn around at the second larger damn and paddle back. The river has lots of sharp turns and one needs to be on a constant lookout for submersed logs and other hazards.
