For a fun adventure, grab your drift boat, kayak, paddleboard, or canoe, and cruise the Banana River to enjoy a day on Samsons Island. With access only by non-motorized boats and watercrafts, you'll feel like you've been transported to a far-away remote island without all the travel time. Managed by the Satellite Beach Recreation Department and patrolled by the city's police, you can enjoy your time on the island with your mind at ease as you hike the trails, observe native wildlife like great blue herons, egrets, ospreys, and owls, fish to waters of the Banana River, or camp overnight.
For your protection, please abide by the rules so that you and others in the future can enjoy this beautiful island.
