Members can paddle through the Club’s Certified Audubon Sanctuary
Relax and unwind kayak-style, compliments of the Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club. The private golf community recently opened a kayak launch nestled in the spectacular mangroves on the Indian River Lagoon, the most biodiverse ecosystem in the northern hemisphere. Members can utilize the Club’s kayaks or use their own to paddle the waters and encounter manatees, dolphins, and birds.
As a Certified Audubon Sanctuary by Audubon International with an ocean to river habitat, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is committed to preserving the rich wildlife found in Vero Beach. Kayakers launch amongst the mangrove and can explore the lagoon waters.
Birders will delight in the colorful and unique birds found in and near the waters of Orchid Island, including pelicans, hawks, ovenbirds, black and white warblers, blackpoll and black-throated blue warblers, American redstarts, rose breasted and blue grosbeak, yellow-throated and red-eyed vireo, and many more.
“In addition to golf, racquet sports and fitness, Orchid Island members take advantage of our oceanfront and river front property and the wildlife that is found and protected on our grounds,” said Rob Tench, Orchid Island’s General Manager. “From our biking and walking trails to the kayak launch, we are an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise.”
Orchid Island is located at One Beachside Drive, Vero Beach. For more information, visit OrchidIslandFL.com.
