Kayaking at MacArthur Beach State Park provides visitors with a unique experience.
Paddle around the estuary or travel 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.
You can enjoy the calm kayaking waters of the Park by renting a kayak or in your own canoe/kayak. For year-round free kayaking, consider joining Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park.
Kayak Rental is available at the Beach Outfitters Gift Shop. Kayak rentals may be impacted by weather concerns; Small Craft Caution restricts kayaking to the Estuary, kayaks will not be rented when a Small Craft Advisory is in effect.

Watch Your Tides
Kayaking at MacArthur Beach State Park is best at high tide. Visit www.saltwatertides.com, select Florida Atlantic Coast, North Palm Beach and the date.
At low tide, mud flats begin to appear in parts of the estuary. Although there is not as much deep water at low tide, it is a wonderful time to observe all of the park’s wildlife coming in to feed.
