This section, “On The Water”, is dedicated to those events and activities and to the local area businesses that offer a service or product related to them.

Information:
All of the Treasure and Space Coast are shielded from the Atlantic Ocean by narrow sandbars and barrier islands that protect the shallow lagoons, rivers, and bays. Immediately inland, pine and palmetto flatlands are abundant. Numerous lakes and rivers run through these areas, notably the well known, Indian River, a part of the Indian River Lagoon system.

History:
The Treasure Coast is a region in the U.S. State of Florida. It is located on the state’s Atlantic coast, formed by Indian River, St. Lucie, and Martin, and in some definitions, Palm Beach counties. The name, Treasure Coast, was coined after salvagers began recovering Spanish treasure off the coast in 1961. The discovery of treasure from the 1715 Treasure Fleet, lost in a hurricane near the Sebastian Inlet, was of major local importance and brought international attention to the area.

The Space Coast is a region in the U.S state of Florida and is also located on the state’s Atlantic coast, formed by Brevard county.

Whether for a weekend family getaway, months long wintering or if you live here year around, you can relax on the white sand beaches, enjoy endless water sports, deep-sea fish in the Atlantic, explore cypress forests by airboat and enjoy many more activities here on the Treasure and Space Coast.
