Venture deep in the heart of MacArthur State Park!
Join us on a kayaking adventure into Old Florida as we venture deep in the heart of MacArthur State Park.
The early Seminole Indians called this island “Nuctsachoo” or Pelican Island. It was later named for the flamboyant James Munyon, who built a five-story hotel on the island’s south shore. The hotel Hygeia burned to the ground in 1917 and the island remained mostly uninhabited until a major restoration project was started by Palm Beach County in 1992.
Munyon Island is a “must see” for anyone who wants to enjoy the great weather and ecological wonders of South Florida.
Our tour begins with an introduction to the area. After being issued a jacket and paddle, your guides will conduct “Paddling 101”, a short lesson on ergonomic paddling. You will then be fitted in a kayak (we have both singles and doubles) and hit the water for an enjoyable paddle through the calm shallow waters. We’ll head to the northern tip of the island and take a short swimming break on a white sandy beach, then onward through the winding mangrove trails. When we reach the west side, we’ll stop on the beach and explore the island while your guide shares some of the island’s history, native flora, and fauna. We’ll paddle around small mangrove islands as we continue to make our way back to our launching spot.
Includes park admission, guide & kayak equipment!
