Take this from Jonathan Dickinson Park up the river to where the fresh water comes into the Loxahatchee on its way to the Atlantic Ocean... You will see the changes from salt water to fresh water and the changes in vegetation along the way with...More

The Loxahatchee River is a scenic river but in my opinion the further upstream one goes the more beautiful it becomes so probably canoeing it's upper reaches would be a better option for those with more time and energy. That being said taking this boat...More

Wife and I opted to rent a canoe instead of the river cruise that did pass us with a minimal wake! A short paddle downstream to the creek where we saw otters and a couple gators. Less than a two hour trip but just wonderful,...More

Never heard of this park before, have lived most my life in north FL. One of my fellow Trikkers -- 3 wheel human powered cambering vehicle -- suggested I would enjoy doing the trails and the nature there. To my surprise, it has been more...More

Although the scenery and wilderness is stunning you won't get a chance to enjoy it. The captain runs the boat at high speeds over manatees and the wake knocks the turtle off branches and spooks the birds. More embarrassing are the looks on the faces...More

And that about sums up our boat trip! Cost is fair; boat is fairly comfortable. Captain was OK, didn't really have much to say as far as information about our ride, boat, river, or park. He was late to get us started and no reason...More

This was a great trip, very inexpensive, relaxing, and informative. Tides and weather permitting, the boat takes you to Trapper Nelson's where a tour guide provides information on his life and the property. The captain had good information about the flora and fauna along the...More

The boat ride is available on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Trapper Nelson's camp is not available then. The weekend finds the river loaded with canoers and kayakers and you will see no wildlife. Also, call ahead and find out when high tide is available for...More
