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

Nice park but with few roads so that a boat becomes necessary. The beach is not great, especially when compared to South Beach.

I like this place because it's quiet...during the week. I take the kids, and I can just relax while they play. The water is shallow, and they close the beach early. We always go during the week because there is less visitors. The restaurant/grille uptop is alright...nothing special...however I think it lacks attention....it's missing something.

The park itself would be rated much higher; however the support staff and amenities were very sub-par. The recent concessionaire issues drastically affected the ability to further explore the park. We walked around the footpath near the visitor center and it was tremendously littered. Bad to see that on our national parks. Staff was less than helpful and had no... More
