The Peanut Island Shuttle Boat located at the Riviera Beach Marina (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. Please allow about two hours for the whole experience. Children ages 4 and under receive free admission.

Palm Beach Maritime Museum

The range of interactive displays, artifacts, and historical recreations at the Palm Beach Maritime Museum ensure that Florida's nautical history isn't stuck in the past. The nonprofit organization manages two waterfront properties tied directly to local maritime technology and the environment. At the Lake Worth Lagoon Education Center in Currie Park, guides give tours of ferry-boat docks and a gallery of indoor and in-water exhibits. Meanwhile, on 5 acres on Peanut Island, an historical former Coast Guard station and its ready-boat give a peek into the past of the famed institution. It's also here that guides lead visitors through the concrete halls of President John F. Kennedy's bomb shelter, a relic of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The museum was very interesting with a lot of things to read but the tour did not give you enough time to enjoy the experience for the money you paid.
