Join us for a special limited time 90-minute kayaking and paddleboarding tour of the newest Jupiter paddling hot-spot, Fullerton Island.  This special island was acquired by the town of Jupiter from the Fullerton family, and with the help of the Palm Beach County Department of
Environmental Resource Management, and the fact that Jupiter has become a paddlers andRC Logooutdoor enthusiasts haven, it has been transformed into an island just for that purpose.  Over 6 acres of the island were dredged to now form a lagoon with islands within it along with special initiatives to create a native ecosystem, conducive to sustaining the diverse flora and fauna found here in Jupiter.  This special tour is led by an environmental educator and paddling guide from the Loxahatchee River Center, another partner organization focused on telling the ecological story of our amazing waterways, and will focus on telling you that story while exploring the island and surrounding Sawfish Bay.  All ages and experience levels welcome.
