Boat Docks


Return to Peanut Island‚Äč

For your convenience, the park offers limited boat docking facilities on both the east and west sides of the island. All Docks are for day use only, except by permit.

Boat operators use park docks at their own risk and must determine the suitability of slips for their boats, their skill level, and environmental factors before using the docks. Palm Beach County is not responsible for theft, fire, or damage.
