Pon Tiki's cabana-boat tours drift along the Loxahatchee River while endowing voyagers with a view of the Jupiter Lighthouse, a grandiose tower of red brick that was built in 1859. Equipped with a custom bar and a wide-reaching sunbrella shade-top, each floating bamboo-cabana provides passengers with tasty drinks and allows river-faring picnickers to bring their own food aboard. From the Pon Tiki boat's own golf driving tee, swing cultivators can fuel their secret passion for water hazards with dead-on accuracy, and the built-in stereo system allows smooth sailors to glide down the river to the soothing sounds of Bill Cosby humming Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.

Heather grew up in the relatively tight confines of New York. She and her family never had any pets, and she has, in some ways, chosen to compensate for that fact by starting her business. She owns and operates Pet-N-Parties, a mobile petting zoo that brings pigs, sheep, rabbits, and ponies to liven up events. She lives on a farm with more than 40 animals, and she says each one has a different personality. One of her favorite parts of her job is overhearing her staff explain the personality of each animal to eager crowds of kids who are looking forward to petting a pig, riding a pony, or discussing the nature of existence with a rabbit.
Heather also invites people over to meet all of the animals at once. She happily hosts events and parties at her five-and-a-half-acre ranch in Jupiter, where entire families can experience feeding, petting, and riding farm animals together.
Snook Action Charters' specialty is simple: boat trips to crystal clear, rarely fished waters that are teeming with snook, snappers, and the occasional shark. The team makes the trips seem simple, at least, but there's hard work behind that simplicity. The company's veteran captain, for instance, knows the area's best fishing spots from years of experience?he first started guiding fishing trips at age 12 with his father. Since then, he's fished in the Florida Keys' famous waters and the flats of Mosquito Lagoon. Similar hard work went into stocking the company's boat, The Jupiter. Customers get to relax and enjoy a leisurely fishing trip, confident that the staff has stocked the vessel with rods, bait, and tackle, complemented by stores of sunscreen and frosty soda.
Mike Johnson knows how to do a lot more than just navigate a boat; with more than a quarter century as a Coast Guard-certified captain and a longtime Palm Beach resident, he has learned where to find the best fishing spots and the most secluded Bahamian islands. In fact, he has taken more than 200 private charters to the Bahamas in the past 25 years, and has a crew that can help clean and bag catches after an offshore or inshore fishing excursion. Clients can also use Mike's charters to host a sunset dinner with friends or to learn how to pilot a trawler themselves.
Kevin Sweeney practically has the Florida backwaters in his blood: he was raised to feel comfortable wandering through the swamps, spying wildlife, and catching fish. Today, he wields both his local expertise and an EMT certification as he leads groups across the wilds on five different excursions with South Florida Outdoors Adventure. These eco tours set out to encounter wildlife, hunt for fish, small game, or alligators, and listen for frogs. Participants can also choose to additionally camp out or take archery lessons, learning the skills that can help them survive during their inevitable lifetime in the wild.
