    Our group consisted of one young teen, a child, two parents and two grandparents and this trip pleased everyone. Our captain made activity suggestions that were excellent and people paddle-boarded, slid down the slide into the water, fished and hiked on the sandbar/island. There was plenty of shade if you wished or a place to stretch out in the sun. Despite windy conditions, we felt very safe.

    We loved our boat ride so much we went two times!
    Captain Bill and Caroline were so knowledgeable, kind and fun to be with! Walking through the mangroves, watching a dolphin swim right by the boat, seeing manatees, nesting osprey... What's not to love?

    Historic Downtown Stuart is a beautiful place for dining, shopping and sightseeing. There lots of stores from clothing, ice cream, to restaurants. The strip is lined with historic old buildings which kind of bring you back in time. At one end you enjoy and walk along the St. Lucie River. The views are just amazing. Parking can be difficult so be patient.

    Fascinating place, well preserved historical building. In expensive.
    I didn’t know anything about these places, built to rescue seamen after a shipwreck.it’s a delightful place o sit in a rocker and watch the ocean.
    There is a beach, with a carved rocky shore next door.
    A quiet beach.

    Much more than meets the eye, the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center offers an aquarium-like experience along with a natural one, thanks to a mile-long walking trail into the mangroves to the Intercoastal Waterway. Back at the center, one can observe fish, turtles, and other sea life in the Gamefish Lagoon and various touch tanks; meanwhile the Ocean EcoCenter features additional aquariums and beautiful exhibits.

    What a nice surprise this museum was. We were attracted by the King Tut artifacts but fell in love with the selection of antique cars. Nicely laid out with a very helpful staff.

    This beach is the best! It’s perfect for anyone - families, small children, for anyone who likes sun, sand and water! I’ve found some beautiful sea shells there that are worth collecting. It’s got a huge area with shallow water perfect for the little ones. It is a clean beach. Lifeguards are attentive. It’s my favorite beach in Martin County!

    Hikes are amazing. Love it! The nature trails are so pretty. Walk along the river and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Don’t forget to look up and see birds and air plants. Enjoy.

    Fantastic day on the water; this is the private charter you want to book next time you're traveling to the Stuart, Florida area. Convenient location to pick up the boat ajacent to the Marriott on Hutchinson Island, a competent Captain, nice and clean boat, and speakers boasting a fantastic playlist to boot. Captain Trent took us on a great 4 hour charter on a pleasant day. Appreciated that he took the time to run us through a safety check before leaving the dock. We had a great time on the water with Capitan Trent and his bosun Ryan; the team works hard to give guests the experience they're looking for to pull in incredible catches. Alas, the sailfish eluded us that morning, but we did catch two brilliantly colored and great sized mahi mahis.

    I do enjoy this as an area where the kids can go and forget about life. Offers a few nice shade spots. Has one place to eat. You put on a wrist band (which makes it easy to go in and out grab some drinks I left in the truck.

    2 bigger slides which you wait in a line left for one right for the other. If you dont push off hard and fast you go fairly slow. Which I guess help my kids not get to scared.

    Definitely a cheaper way to a water park

    We decided to try something new for Happy Hour and were very impressed. The place has lots of room inside by the bar and a nice outdoor seating area.It was fun to walk around and see the vegetables growing and of course the chickens.We each had a glass of wine and a different pizza. We all agreed the mushroom pizza was the best although they were all good.If I had any complaint it would be that they could have an expanded happy hour menu. Definetly a fun place and something different from the happy hour bar scene.
