Blocking Rocks gets its name from powerful waves that crash against the limestone coast during high tide. The collision causes jets of water to spray skyward—at times up to 50 feet. Jupiter Island, centered between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon, protects the sanctuary's wetlands, woodlands, and coast. Warblers, hawks, and falcons migrate to the area in fall, when the Preserve's sea grapes ripen in bright purple clusters.
