Lake Boca in Boca Raton is one of the more peaceful and calm paddle boarding  locations since it is in the Intracoastal. It is perfect for first-time paddleboarders and private lessons since the seawalls on either side of the Intracoastal break up most of the waves caused by the wind.

You will find that the inside of the Intracoastal is rather calm and there is not much boat traffic in this location. Sometimes the water in this area is also crystal clear and you are able to see all the way to the bottom of the sea floor!

Look out for stingray, sea turtles, manatees, and fish on this gorgeous waterway, right off the Boca Raton Resort and Club where this training will take place. 

Lake Boca is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a narrow strip of land, dotted with homes and condos.  Part of the Intracoastal Waterway winds through the saltwater Lake, which is a destination for those looking for a place to anchor and play. 

The area is the scene of huge gatherings of boats, and a largely popular spot every spring during a flotilla called “Boca Bash.” Boca Bash is a huge floating party where music and festive boaters congregate to enjoy the shallow water at low tide.

The sand bar is knee deep at low tide, but many boaters choose to anchor a bit farther off shore and swim in to avoid getting blocked in by the growing crowd of boats.

Lake Boca is an ideal place to hone your Instructor skills.
