Launch Location: Lake Worth Lagoon. On Southern Blvd. there is a small parking area right after the drawbridge when you are heading east with a small sandy beach to launch from.
Personal Notes: This was our second time kayaking here. This time we explored some of the islands more and paddled further south than before.
In addition to exploring a few of the islands we paddled along the East side of the lake to get a better view of the beautiful mansions owned by people that have way too much wealth.
At one of the islands we helped push a motor boat off of a sand bar that had become stuck on when the tide went out. We would have loved to have paddled for a few more hours but the weather started getting rough so we headed in.
Fees: None, parking is free. I’ve been told that signs that say two hour limit are just there in case there are any problems or complaints. We parked our car with its kayak trailer for five hours without getting a ticket.
Description:I’m told that this area has been used for years by fishermen and kayakers. It is an urban area with a lagoon and small islands of mangroves with kayak trails going through them. Large beautiful mansions line the east side of the lagoon. Once in the mangroves there are kayak trails with an abundance of wildlife.
Kayak Rentals Availability: No
Amenities: There are no facilities, just free parking and a small sandy beach to launch from. There is an LA Fitness about 15 minutes away on the corner of Okeechobee Blvd. and Military Trail. We took advantage of being members and used the gym’s showers to get cleaned up.
