Local ordinances now prohibit us from launching at the Bingham Islands. They can be accessed by taking a longer trip and paddling a couple miles North of our launch location in the Snook Islands.
The Bingham Islands area lies just south of the Southern Boulevard Intracoastal Bridge and to the west of the barrier island of Palm Beach, Florida. This is a naturalized area that features densely wooded mangrove coves. The Bingham Islands a designated Audubon Bird Sanctuary and home to a host of birds.
This location is best toured at and around high tide, much of the area is impassable during low tide.
Once you launch from the white sandy beach, you head South to skirt the native barrier islands allowing you to observe birds, mangroves and marine life in their natural habitats.
The wooded and dense mangrove characteristics of the Bingham Islands provide favorable conditions for manatees and large schools of fish.
Hidden coves and tidal bays hold a wonderful assortment of native and migratory wildlife. Osprey, herons, egrets and other local birds frequently inhabit this area. Dolphins and manatees also have been seen in the deeper channels around Bingham Islands.
The peacefulness and beauty of this area takes you away to what old Florida would have felt like. Weekday trips are almost completely secluded making this area a trip to remember.
The Bingham Islands off of Palm Beach is an urban oasis for Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard enthusists. In fact, we almost exclusively rent our Paddleboards out of this location. The shallow, calm waters of the north side of Southern make it a great place for beginners and more experienced Stand-Up Paddleboarders.
