Kayaking at MacArthur Beach State Park provides visitors with a unique experience.
Kayakers can paddle around the estuary, under Burnt Bridge into the Lake Worth Lagoon and visit Munyon Island – an outlying part of the Park with a rich history. Depending on the season, you may see wildlife including manatees, dolphins, mullet, snook, rays, and a variety of birds. Munyon Island is best visited when the tide is high, enabling navigation of the scenic interior waterways.
You can enjoy the calm kayaking waters of the Park in your own canoe/kayak, by joining a Ranger for a two-hour tour, or by renting a kayak and exploring on your own. (For year-round free kayaking, consider joining the Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park.)
Kayak Rental is available at the Beach Outfitters and Gift Shop. Visitors may rent a kayak and explore designated areas of the estuarine habitat on their own.
