Boating is a major industry in Palm Beach County, and with clear turquoise water combined with public access angles, it’s easy to capture the thrill and excitement of boating. 47 miles of coastline and the intracoastal waterway offer many options for filmmakers.
At DuBois Park, the Jupiter Inlet Jetty offers a solid surface to stand on, making it easy to capture many angles from every direction. The Juno Beach Pier juts out over the ocean to provide a high angle for creative fast moving imagery.
Juno Beach Pier
Phil Foster Park is an island under the Blue Heron Bridge in Riviera Beach with seawall on three sides and a fishing platform. To the south, a sand bar forms on the north side of Peanut Island for filming activities and Palm Beach Shores has a sand dredge that juts out at the inlet where a passing boat can be showcased.
West Palm Beach offers three City Docks to capture boating traffic or dockage shots and the Royal Park Bridge has walkways underneath, close to the water’s edge. Further south, the Lake Worth Pier is great for ocean angles with clear sightlines free of buildings.
West Palm Beach City Docks
Ocean Blvd in Boynton Beach has a walkway along the road that looks over Ocean Inlet for overhead angles, and the intracoastal side has day use dockage available. Mangrove Park’s southern walkway provides direct views of the Ocean Avenue Bridge. Along the seawall in Delray Beach, boat dockage is available at Veterans Park just north of Atlantic Avenue with views of the Atlantic Avenue bridge. Boca Raton offers a boat launch at Silver Palms Park just south of Palmetto Park Road while the jetty at South Inlet Park provides a solid surface to position a camera for wonderful waterway images.
