I am so glad we decided to visit this park. Unfortunately we came in what is essentially "off season", which sounds strange since southern Florida is generally warm in the fall. There were no boats/ferries to visit the islands. We were told that they are currently negotiating a contract for that type of service in the future. The walk along... More

Right on the bay, choices are many; families gather to picnic with choice views of water--Miami skyline in the distance. Walkers enjoy the trail along the water. It's Kayakers paradise. Inside the Visitor's Center is an elaborate display of the variety of wildlife and many treasures to see. Artists display their art in the gallery which holds receptions for the... More

We visited Biscayne National Park because we love National Parks and wanted to get a little exercise by walking the extensive boardwalks in this mostly underwater National Park. We were also interested in the glass-bottom boat tours. We got our exercise in and caught a late afternoon glass bottom boat tour. On our way out to the coral reefs we... More

This is a nice park. It was even nicer when they had a concession that had snorkeling trips, but unfortunately is not available anymore, I guess they are looking for someone else. It's a very nice place to walk around, along the bay, there are some areas that you can go in with your snorkel and check the coral reef,... More

I am becoming a huge fan of the NPS. All the national parks I've visited now have been very well done. Clean facilities, knowledgable staff, and super protected, natural lands. Biscayne is another one. There are Blue Crabs everywhere in the park. I love that all life is protected in our nations parks. 95 percent of the park is covered... More

Beautiful "BISCAYNE", This park has a rocky shoreline, but that doesn't limit access to the park. The coral reefs and the entire park is underwater. You can rent a canoe, scuba, snorkel, or swim. It's a fun morning following the marine life. Cost $

I can imagine this NP is a quick visit for most as it was for us. We basically had our NP book stamped and went on about our day. We walked out the boardwalk onto the small beach and people were fishing there. You would need access to a boat to enjoy this NP. They have a small eco exhibit... More

Wonderful rangers are there for you. They are knowledgable and friendly. The Bay is accessible by canoe, which you can rent. The rocky shore line is difficult to walk on limiting access to the water.

We rented the canoes. The guy from the store kept pushing us into the trees for like 3 times, making the branch poke us before he push us out into the lake. He also made us sit on the edge of the canoe; As you can figure out the canoe tip within 5 minutes and my 3 year old daughter... More

The park is huge, but in order to access the islands you need your own boat. The park has a lighthouse, reefs, and sunken ships, however, this is miles off shore and no ferry provided. The park accessible by car or bike is still worth a trip. The park has a beach, you can fish, have a picnic, check out... More
