Indian River Lagoon - Round Island Park
"Manatee" was the word of the day, as in: "there are three manatee right in front of your kayak - back paddle!" and "OK, there is a manatee underneath my kayak..."

It isn't always the case, but on Friday, April 22 we saw lots of active manatee.

Round Island is a great paddling destination for short paddles or overnighters.

On the 22nd we were on the water for just an hour and a half introducing kayaking to 2 girls age 5 and 7. We paddled, floated and had a great time watching fish leap out of the water, birds perch over head in the mangroves.


public park with good parking and clean restrooms.
Launch off the sandy beach - the boat ramp is very busy and SLICK!




Round Island Park is located on A1A in Vero Beach
From the North take the 17th Street bridge to A1A South; the park is 5 miles south on the right hand side of the road - there is a traffic light at the park.

From the south take the north causeway in Fort Pierce- follow signs for the Navy Seal Museum signs - head north on A1A - Round Island will be on the left - there is a traffic light at the park entrance.
