DuBois Park in Jupiter is the best place to float in South Florida.

 

A friend of mine convinced me to take a ride up to Jupiter to DuBois Park to have a float in the inlet.  It is located at 19075 DuBois Road, Jupiter, Dubois Park in JupiterFlorida 33477.  It is an area surrounded by mangroves off the inlet so there are very little waves and it’s generally pretty shallow.The day I went the tide was unusually high and the deepest place was up to my chest.  I am only 5’2″ so that’s  not too deep.  My friend who has been going here for years said she had never seen it so deep. You can wade from one shore to the other easily and down the inlet about 1/4 of a mile.  There is also a little “island” in the middle where the kids can catch hermit crabs and snails.  We had such a great day there, we intend to go back very soon.So get your floats and hang out in the water, cause you won’t find a better place to swim with the family in this Life Guarded little cove.  DuBois Park has a playground, picnic tables and bathrooms.  There is also an historic house on the property, but I couldn’t get my kid out the water long enough to investigate it!Oh, and the park has free entry and free parking. 

FYI – Check on the Dubois Website before you go as they do sometimes close without much warning http://www.pbcgov.com/parks/locations/dubois.htm#.VuqZh9DKuVQ
