Choose Between Two Options

  • $25 for a VIP tour of the Kennedy bunker and a former Coast Guard station for two adults ($50 value)
  • $50 for a VIP tour of the Kennedy bunker and a former Coast Guard station for four adults ($100 value)

A water taxi (not included in this Groupon) ferries tour-takers to Peanut Island, where they can explore the bunker and historical Coast Guard station. The John F. Kennedy Bunker was built secretly before the Cuban Missile Crisis to serve as an emergency command center for the president, who vacationed frequently in Palm Beach. The bunker has been repaired, but is otherwise kept to its original 1960s condition. A historian leads the tour, teaching about the Cold War. Tourists also visit a restored, former Coast Guard station, located about 100 yards from the Kennedy bunker, as well as a gift store where guests may purchase snacks and drinks. The tour lasts approximately two hours. Children ages 4 and under receive free admission.

    “Wear sunscreen, bring your bathing suit and/or snorkeling gear. The ferry coasts $10 a head to get out, so you ,might as well take advantage of it. When you are going across, tell the captain that you are going to the Kennedy Bunker and he will drop you off right there, very nice guy. The tour doesn't last long, but it is a very cool piece of local history.”
