Delray Beach Lake Ida – Calm

Delivery Spot

Please note: We do not offer walk-up services. All activities are by appointment only. You can make a reservation request by clicking HERE

Lake Ida is one of the largest and clearest brackish lakes in South Florida.  The water is fairly calm, so it is perfect for first-time paddlers. In recent years this spot has become increasingly popular with the expansion of the park and dog park located at Lake Ida. The Lake is home is various kinds of wildlife including turtles and indigenous birds to Florida.

This paddleboarding tour is pet-friendly and the best part is that there is also a dog park on the West side of Lake Ida, so feel free to bring your pupper to paddle and play in the dog park after the paddle.

Note: there are NO alligators in this area despite the sign. The water is brackish (partly salty) and Gators can’t live in brackish water. Their cousin – the Crocodile can live in Salt Water, but there are none in Florida North of the Keys. There are some turtles to look out for on occasion here though!
