Living at Palazzo on the St. Johns is a paddler’s dream! Whether you favor canoes, kayaks or paddleboards, you’re in a great location to launch your paddling adventure right from our own private marina.

You’ll enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding marshlands and preserve of Goodby’s Creek. One small channel leads along the creek toward the Baymeadows Road bridge and beyond. You’ll find less boat traffic as you proceed and a setting populated by turtles, owls, ducks, and other water fowl. It’s a peaceful, easy paddle as you pass under the second bridge where the creek narrows and the tree canopy thickens.

As an alternative, it’s only a short distance to the mighty St. Johns River where more adventures await. Along the east bank of the St. Johns, you’ll encounter Walter Jones Historical Park with its boat ramp, walking trails, picnic areas, restrooms and the Mandarin Museum and Historical Society.

If you’re ambitious, you can turn northward on the St. Johns and head toward downtown Jacksonville, or stop at any of the park-side ramps along the river toward town. St. Johns Marina is a good stopping place in the shadow of the city’s business district; it’s near restaurants, the Museum of Science and History, and the Southbank Riverwalk.

Whatever your paddling skill level, you’ll find our Goodby’s Creek setting a safe and quiet starting point for your paddling journeys. Enjoy your trip secure in the knowledge that when you return to your Palazzo on the St. Johns condominium home, you’ll have all the conveniences you need to freshen up, sit down and relax, whether on your patio or indoors. Or take a dip in our resort-style saline swimming pool and cook up a tasty meal in our summer kitchen.
