Parks in South Florida offer watercraft rentals for folks who adore an excursion on the water.
Watercraft for rent include stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, paddleboats & others.
Prior to venturing out, phone first. Some parks require pre-payment for watercraft rentals, and occasionally rentals are not available for other reasons.
Note — some parks are not open to the public for regular activities when issuing vaccines. Phone first to verify which days park is open, and if watercraft rentals are available.
