Lake Osborne is an inland lake located at John Prince Park in Lake Worth, Florida. A popular bass fishing spot, this freshwater lake is home to an assortment of birds and wildlife. Quite large, the lake runs north and south and is between Lake Worth Rd and Hypoluxo Rd.
The boat ramps are located at the north end of the park at the Lake Worth Rd. entrance, this is also where we launch kayaks. There is some boat traffic on Lake Osbourne that you have to be aware of, but it can be a beautiful paddle and great for kayak fishing too.
By South Florida standards, it’s been downright cold at night – especially for this time of year. But, most of the daytime temps have been absolutely beautiful with highs in the 70’s and low humidity. This makes for super enjoyable kayaking weather – you don’t even have to break a sweat half the time!
Come on down to Bryant Park this Saturday 11.10.2012 from 9am-1pm for open kayaking with Kayak Lake Worth and see for yourself!
Typically, we require advanced reservations for our rentals and tours, so this is a unique opportunity to just walk right up if the mood strikes and jump on a kayak. Notice I said ON and kayak, not IN a kayak? That is because we use SOT – sit on top kayaks, not the traditional kind where you are inside a cockpit. This makes the sport accessible to a broader group of people because the SOT kayaks do not tip or flip and are much easier to maneuver for beginners. Stand-up paddleboard rentals will also be available.
All rentals are on a first come, first served basis. Availability is not guaranteed. Children under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardian to be present.
1 Hour Single Kayak or SUP Rentals for $20+ tax, Tandem for $35+ tax
2 Hour Single Kayak or SUP Rentals for $35+ tax, Tandem for $50+ tax
4 Hour Single Kayak or SUP Rentals for $40+ tax, Tandem for $55+ tax
8 Hour Single Kayak or SUP Rentals for $60+ tax, Tandem for $70+ tax
We will be in Bryant Park, just south of the boat ramps. All major credit cards are accepted, cash payments are accepted, but we will NOT be able to make change. Call us at 561.225.8250 with any questions.
Hope to see you Saturday!
Kayak Lake Worth offers a number of trips designed to appeal to everyone. From the casual paddler, to more adventurous types, there is a kayak trip for you. We provide all gear and make sure you have the basic skills necessary for maneuvering your kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Please be aware that you and anything you bring along will get wet and the kayaks and sups have a limited storage area. We do provide a small dry box suitable for keys, cell phone, wallet, etc.
Our 2.5 hour rentals are the most popular option. You have the choice of touring either the Snook Islands in Lake Worth or the Bingham Islands which lie just west of the island of Palm Beach. Rental time includes pre-launch procedures such as any necessary instruction and route information. We also make sure to include plenty of time for taking in the sights, bird watching, taking photos or just bobbing along on the currents. Tidal and weather conditions do play a part and may be a factor as to when your chosen area is available to paddle.
For those looking for more time out on the water, we also offer 4 hour rentals. Those renting fishing kayaks most often opt for the 4 hour rental. Kayakers just out for a paddle use the time to venture past the Snook or Bingham Islands out to John’s Island, the Ibis Isle Restoration area and Hunter’s Island. One way trips between the Snook and Binghams are often done during a 4 hour rental. Either you can arrange to be picked up and driven back to your car at the point of origin, or you can have us shuttle you back. The 4 hour kayak rental is also great for exploring Lake Osborne.
Kayak Lake Worth full day rentals are 8 hours. Most of our full day rentals are drop-offs for those living on a local body of water or for those fishing. Others do a roundtrip loop that brings them through the Snook Islands, Bingham Islands, Ibis Isle Restoration area, John’s Island and Hunters Island for an approximately 9.5 mile paddle.
Our kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals and tours are available by reservation only.
