A rapidly growing nonprofit organization, founder Richard Brochu based the Florida Fishing Academy's curriculum on a love of the outdoors, bolstering group powerboat and kayak tours with snorkeling and educational activities. Both kayak and powerboat programs are designed to enlighten youths and their families, championing the majesty of nature along the Riviera Beach area waters. Knowledgeable and safety conscious tour guides lead excursions to Peanut Island so participants can snap underwater pictures while snorkeling and engage with wildlife while pondering nature’s refusal to install air conditioning units. Kayak tours are comprised of no more than 16 people and take place on Saturdays beginning at 9 a.m. and Sundays beginning at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Ten-person powerboat tours are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 12. p.m., and every other Sunday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Mos'Art Theatre, strives to fortify Palm Beach's cultural scene with "film, art, music, and hope," bolstering a sense of community and inspiring creative expression. Before even entering the theater, audiences pass paintings from local artists and the Art Bar, where they can sip a preshow beer or wine. In the intimate, 150-seat auditorium, the silver screen lights up with indie and foreign films, dazzling eyes and ears with stories that spotlight the human condition and let patrons cry in public without fear of banishment. The management duo, J.R. and Erin Coley, rounds out the commitment to elevating artistic discourse with live children's theater, creative classes, and an ongoing series tracking opera and ballet in the movies.
The knowledgeable guides of Paddleboard Excursions are known to treat participants like family as they pilot groups of all ages and experience levels across the scenic waterways of Palm Beach County. Each tour or lesson kindles camaraderie as guides and instructors cater to every participant's comfort level and exploration goal. During lessons, teachers patiently work with their pupils to instill confidence and ensure that everyone can competently glide over the aquatic ripples and laugh at fish's inability to walk while standing upon professional paddleboards. Tours splash against the shores of Peanut, Munyon, and Jupiter Islands, and guides are quick to point out passing wildlife, such as manatees.
Sailors navigate the glittering waters of Palm Beach in one of The Boat Fleet's many vessels, which include center consoles, walkarounds, deck boats, cabin cruisers, and bowriders.

The 21- to 33-foot boats include rigs equipped for fishing trips—including stainless-steel rod holders, game-spotting GPS, and lures that look like Bugs Bunny in a wig—and all ships stow Coast Guard safety gear and lifeboats aboard.
