Had a nice Saturday morning walk around the island after riding over to the island via pontoon. Clean paths and pretty flat. An easy walk!

Deerfield beach has a hidden gem! Take a free boat ride on the weekend to this hidden hideaway. You won't be disappointed if you like nature.

Easy to get too! Great staff. Awesome boat ride to the island. You're on your own when u get to the island but it's easy to navigate around. We didn't see too many creatures, only a large iguana but it was still a fun trip.
