It’s home for us but its a popular coastal destination that we love so we figured we would kick off the Deadrise “Coastal Culture” Series with one of our favorite coastal towns. There’s plenty to do here on the boat so its a it’s a perfect weekend getaway. Hook up the trailer and go. Let us know if you need help finding all the gear needed to make it happen.
Although there’s a lot of other stuff we love to do besides boating, the boat is our tool to freedom on the water and a big part of the coastal culture.
Stuff to do
Offshore fishing - Jupiter Florida is one of the closest coastal destinations to the Gulf Stream. We won’t get into the science of it all but it equates to amazing fishing offshore. Drifting live baits or trolling dead baits both work for sailfish and a bunch of other species out there.
Inshore fishing - The Loxahatchee river dumps out to the Atlantic right here in Jupiter. This offers some of the best inshore fishing that the East coast has to offer. Snook, Tarpon, and the elusive Jack are all on the list for a river slam.
Stop by one of the many friendly local tackle shops like Grand Slam Tackle For info on time of year and how to target the species you’re after.
Sandbars - Check the tide and swing by one of the several sandbars in the area to join the party. Some get a little wilder than others but there’s an option for everyone just cruise around for a while and you’ll get a feel for the vibe out there.
Food & Drink - Not sure of the official stats but I feel pretty sure stating it - Jupiter Florida has more bar and restaurant options on the water than anywhere in the country Considering its such a small town. One of our favorites in Guanabanas. It’s a completely outdoor bar and restaurant as well as a great music venue. Perfect stop at the end of a day on the water. Check the music schedule at on their website.
Other spots in Jupiter
Trapper Nelson’s and the Jupiter Lighthouse - If you want to go back in time or just get off the grid you can head on up the Loxahatchee river while it weaves around twists and turns and gets back into some of the most beautiful scenery Florida has to offer. Or check out the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse museum for some history and an amazing view from the top.
Places to Stay - If you’re wanting the full outdoor experience you can camp out at Jonathan Dickinson State Park just up the road. There’s even a boat ramp in the park that puts you far up into the Loxahatchee river. Otherwise, there are several hotels near the boat ramps.
Just one of the many places we will explore on the coast. Let us know if you need help gearing up or getting your boat ready for a weekend adventure. See you out there...
