Launch Location: There is a small sandy beach area under the Hillsboro Hwy drawbridge in the Royal Palm area that can be accessed by climbing over a small seawall.
Parking: Parking is free on a dirt parking area. Get there early as there is limited parking.
Description: This paddle was organized by the Gone Kayaking Meetup group. Gone Kayaking will bring a rental kayak if prearranged. On this paddle there are both experienced kayakers and first time kayakers. Kayaking to Deerfield Island Park is a very short paddle so we paddled around the island a few times before paddling over to the docks on the island. The island has nature trails and picnic areas.
Kayak Rentals Availability: Kayak rentals are not available here.
Amenities: There are public rooms in the parking area plus on the island there are public restrooms and a fresh water shower.
