Intracoastal Boat Cruise in Stuart, Florida
The Intracoastal Waterway; also known as the ICW, is a 3,000 mile long waterway that snakes inland of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The ICW starts in Boston, MA and continues South to the Southern tip of Florida. From there is continues North following the Gulf Coast of Florida, through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and ending in Brownsville, TX.
The Honu made the trip from Cape May, NJ to WPB in the fall of 2016. The was a fun and challenging experience in an almost 50 year old boat. After years of restoration, the Honu makes the perfect platform to explore the ICW.
Our boat cruises on the Intracoastal are fun and relaxing and can run from the Vero Beach area down to the Palm Beaches.
There are usually plenty of boats to see and people to watch as well as many beautiful homes that line the route.
The most popular cruise option is from Stuart, FL; South to Jupiter. This route could include a stop at Peck Lake to dinghy into the Northernmost part of Jupiter Island where you walk through the mangroves out to Peck Lake beach where you will have the beach to yourself in this undisturbed, lightly used area. It’s truly beautiful.
From there, we would head South past many celebrity homes, including the late Burt Reynolds, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods and Alan Jackson’s old home to name just a few.
The intracoastal charter cruise would then wind by the Jupiter Lighthouse and beyond to Peanut Island in West Palm Beach.
Going North on the ICW, we could make a stop at Boyscout Island; a desserted spoil island with many unique features where we could spend some time swimming, fishing or having a cookout (either on the boat or on the island).
Travelling farther North would find our way to Fort Pierce. This route of travel is in a wide spance of the ICW where laying on the bow and just enjoying the serenity makes for a perfect day.
