The tour starts from the Dante Fascell Visitors Center and heads across the Biscayne Bay over to Elliot Key. It was interesting to see that... More

We took the boat ride to Boca Chita key. It was a fun, low stress way to get a good feel for the National Park. Then we had lunch at the restaurant by the beach. A great day.

The lighthouse, located inside the National Park, has easy access and a wonderful view from the top. A highly recommended stop if you are in the Miami area.

Biscayne is our closest national park, (we have two, with Everglades) and we visit ofter. As noted with most of the park being water, your visit if you wish to walk is somewhat limited. There are canoes and kayaks to rent, and IK think are your best bet to see the place. Most of the water is very shallow, in... More

This is mainly a WATER park so best to reserve a boat tour in advance, as they do not run every day. There is a beautiful trail along the water to hike as well. Loved it.

The park office had several educational displays and a short video for the kids to look at and learn about. Lots of hands on items that we all enjoyed touching and the rangers we very knowledgeable and friendly. We took the three hour tour over to one of the islands in March so it was pretty chilly. Bring lots of... More

The guided boat tour from Biscayne National Park to Boca Chita key was well worth the $35. The volunteer park ranger (John) was well informed and interesting. I love the Everglades and National Parks and was so happy to find another wonderful place of beauty. This is the only one that is protected water in Biscayne Bay. The boat tour... More

I did the boat tour out to Boca Chita Key. It was a nice day, with a knowledgable tour guide and some interesting history. The bird watching was pretty decent too.

It's a nice location. Close to the house. Too many boats passing by to fish. But love the place. Great restaurant. Bathrooms are great. Family friendly. Great for grilling because they have grills. Just remember no glass when you visit.
