Stay & Play
Skydive Palm Beach is located in Pahokee, the only city with direct marina access to Lake Okeechobee, a 730 square mile lake right in the heart of South Florida. That’s a big deal because Lake Okeechobee is the second largest freshwater lake in the US – there’s a lot to do here! Lake Okeechobee is known by many names, including Florida's Inland Sea, The Big O, and The Muck. Whatever you call it is fine by us, we’re just proud to call it home!
Charter a boat from Pahokee Marina and fish for bass, bluegill, speck or crappie – Lake Okeechobee is known for some of the best freshwater fishing in the country! The fishing is great for families and you’re pretty much guaranteed to come home with an impressive catch. If fishing’s not for you, consider an airboat ride or wildlife tour. The lake is teeming with life!
Take A Hike
The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail – also known as The LOST – is a 109-mile trail that encircles the lake. It’s perfect for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and catching a stunning sunrise or sunset. There are several trailheads and access points along the way, including the Cliff J. Betts, Harney Pond Canal, and the Okee-Tantie recreation areas.
There are numerous parks around Lake Okeechobee, many of which have covered picnic areas with grills, restrooms, and boat ramps. Closest to the dropzone is Paul Rardin Park, which also has a playground and paved access to the dike. Fish from the shore, launch kayaks and canoes, and play along the beach – just be sure to watch out for alligators!
There’s always a party going on around here! The biggest of the year is the Swamp Cabbage Festival that takes place every February about an hour west of the DZ in LaBelle. This family friendly event has something for everyone, including live music, a fishing tournament, 5K, the Cattlemen’s Rodeo, and, of course, a whole lot of food.
