Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a half-day paddleboard or kayak rental for two (up to a $80 value) at Jupiter Outdoor Center, located next to Guanabanas Restaurant.
Jupiter Outdoor Center floats landlubbers of all ages and skill levels across tranquil, scenic waterways with a bevy of knowledge and equipment. Open every day, year-round, the outfitter satisfies river rats who hope to spend up to four hours perched atop a paddleboard or a giant aqua-kazoo, exercising their arms and cores with low-impact motions. Friendly and experienced staff members point out optimal trip plans for traversing the Loxahatchee and Indian rivers or exploring the biodiversity of the Jupiter Inlet Aquatic Preserve estuary, which is home to manatees, sea turtles, and spotted eagle rays. The sit-on-top kayaks are available in single or tandem, the latter being optimal for nostalgic ex-Venetian gondoliers.
Jupiter Outdoor Center has been featured in Palm 2 Jupiter magazine, spotlighted on the Palm Beach Post health blog Step by Step, and mentioned in the Sun Sentinel. More than 1,010 Facebookers like Jupiter Outdoor Center.
