This past weekend, a huge truck pulled up to the New Macedonia Baptist Church filled with Easter joy for 500 families waiting for the spring surprise. One by one, volunteers from Waterfront Properties carried five hundred yellow, pink and blue baskets filled with toys and chocolate candies to the children waiting with excited smiles on their faces. Jupiter Realtor Rob Thomson wanted to share one of his fondest childhood memories with families who may be struggling this year, so he collected and donated the 500 Easter gifts.

“Many families are still struggling as we emerge from a dark time,” said Thomson. “I hope these bright cellophane-wrapped baskets bring a little happiness to the boys and girls as they explore the surprises inside and discover that

There’s nothing like a “Sunday Funday” on the water (or Saturday Funday for that matter). When you factor in the warm Florida sunshine, the blue water, and the convenient variety of waterfront restaurants, the intracoastal waterway (ICW) from Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter always provides for the ultimate cruise. We’ve given you a line-up of ten restaurants not only accessible from the water and in order from Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter Sound, but worth adding to your bucket-list!

Stop #1: Sailfish Marina, Singer Island

Voted the “Best Sunday Brunch” on Trip Advisor, it’s only appropriate to kick off your Sunday shenanigans at Sailfish Marina on Singer Island. Overlooking Peanut Island, this well-known resort and fishing destination opens at 7am with a

In the midst of the upscale tropical island setting of Sailfish Marina, you will find the premiere arts and crafts show of the Palm Beaches. On any Thursday evening from 6-9pm, you may find wood sculpture, pottery, watercolors, blown glass, gold and silver jewelry and much, much more from more than 35 different artists.

Musicians play island tunes on guitar and steel drum, and patrons can buy their famous “grouper dogs” (fried grouper in a hotdog bun) or conch fritters right on the dock. If you would prefer something more formal, the Sailfish Marina Restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining with a beautiful view of the sunset over the water.

Valet parking is available at the marina.

Sailfish Marina Resort is located at 98 Lake Drive on Singer Island,

The pristine waterways of Jupiter, Florida, are full of beautiful marinelife such as manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, starfish, conch, sea urchin, sea cucumber, pufferfish, pelicans, and so much more!

Manatees are one of the most sought after gentle giants to see, which frequent our waters year round. They can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh as much as 1200 pounds, as they munch up to 150 pounds of sea grass daily! 

Whether by boat, paddleboard, kayak, or canoo, there is so much to see. One of the most exciting ways to explore natue and soak up the sun is by clear kayak! Get Up and Go Kayaking is a great option for a tour of the intracoastal waterway with an experienced tour guide and no worries in the world.

This past weekend, sportfishing yachts, center consoles, and even superyachts travelled to Old Bahama Bay for what is now the largest fishing tournament ever held at the West End resort, the 2021 OBB Wahoo Charity Cup. Not only did 45 boats register in the tournament, but Old Bahama Bay sold out their rooms for the first time in 10 years!

After adhering to Bahamian customs law in which all travelers had to test negative for Covid-19, participants were greeted with Harry’s famous conch salad, fresh banana bread, goombay smashes, and the hospitable smiles of local residents.

Having been postponed since November of 2020 due to inclement weather, the tournament was a welcome weekend of festivities and fishing in a community missed and loved by so many.

Snook fishing is something South Floridians are known for, and while it's a fun sport, it's tough for a beginner to figure out on their own. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. If you're looking to catch a snook in the Jupiter area but don't know where to start, try one of our local snook charters! They take care of everything, as long as you take care of charter fee and a customary 15-20% tip!
