About This Guide

The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, which runs 1095 miles from Norfolk, Virginia, to Miami, Florida, encounters Jupiter Inlet and the Loxahatchee River at about mile mark 1005. This guide is designed to help boaters enjoy and appreciate the natural and cultural resources accessible from recreational vessels in the Jupiter Inlet vicinity. The maps and text display and describe features from the maritime history of the area; resources important to boaters and anglers, including marinas and boat ramps and fish species commonly caught in local waters; the distribution of natural resources, such as sea grass, estuaries, and beaches; and sources of information and assistance.

Do not rely on this guide for navigational purposes. Instead, use the latest charts.

The Jupiter Inlet District provided funding for this guide, which was prepared in collaboration with the Florida Sea Grant College Program.
