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.
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.
