South Florida weather is very peculiar! Even when it calls for 100% chance of rain, the squalls often miss Jupiter–especially at our Riverbend location. As long as it’s not lightning, people venture out since it usually never rains for more than a few minutes at a time.
Tides do not affect paddling conditions on the upper Loxahatchee River. Unless you’re paddling past Trapper Nelson’s where the water starts becoming brackish, you won’t need to worry about tides.
If you’re paddling in the Jupiter Lighthouse/Inlet area, you’ll want to plan your trip an hour or two on either side of high tide to experience the bluest, clearest waters. But anytime you can get out for a paddle there is always exciting and beautiful!
