Ready to venture into the ocean? Take your kayak rental to the beach and paddle out to the Boiler Wreck, an 1800s steam/sailing vessel that sank off the coast of Vero Beach in 1894. This spot is popular with snorkelers and scuba divers, but the water is so clear that you can see the remains of the wreck right from your kayak!
