Hutchinson Island is one of the most pristine and accessible coastal locations in Florida, and it is mostly known to locals. This is where the first U.S. Navy underwater demolition teams trained before World War II; these were precursors to the Navy Seals. A pristine beach on the north side of the Fort Pierce Inlet is barely affected by currents and does not get too much surf; the abundance of tropical fish makes it a great spot for snorkeling in Florida, and the clarity of the water is reminiscent of the Caribbean.

The inlet side of the park is still called Dynamite Point, as it was named by the Navy UDTs who exploded ammunition there.

Scuba diving is available; we have a reef about 100 yards from the beach. This is where you can explore our Atlantic ’underwater paradise.’ A ’Diver-Down’ flag must be displayed.

$6.00 per vehicle. Limit 2-8 people per vehicle.

$4.00 Single-occupant vehicle or motorcycle.
