Paddleboarding John Pennekamp Park

Drive 65 miles south of Miami and you’ll find yourself in a little place called Key Largo.

That’s right…queue the Beach Boys, Kokomo song.

“Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take you to Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama. Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go. Ohhhh I want to take you down to a little place called…”

John Pennekamp Park 

On this fabulous Largo Key, there is a magical place called the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.

Although it is known for being the first undersea park in the US with over 70 nautical square miles for people to explore, it is the canoeing, kayaking and, my pawsonal fave , paddleboarding, that makes Pennekamp such a great spot to spend the day.

Get the wet suits & life jackets ready, my peeps, it’s time to go on an adventure!

Not a fan of a little Paddleboarding? Don’t worry! Pennekamp has canoe and kayak rentals. Check ’em out behind me.




John Pennekamp has over 50 miles of mangrove wilderness trails for those looking to easy themselves and enjoy the beauty of nature while getting in a pawsome arm (and core) workout.

Of course, my humans did all the paddling. I just sat back and took it all in, as a true water king should!

Humans, put a little more arm power into the thing. We need to catch up to those people over there!

Caught On Camera!

Check out the footage that my puparazzi humans captured during out visit. It does a pretty darn good job of capturing just how much fun we had.

Pets are welcomed at the park, but must be kept on a six-foot leash and in designated areas. They are not allowed on the beaches or on the tour/rental boats. Of course, they must be well behaved and true ladies & gentledogs, just like me 🙂
