This spot is beautiful with well kept grounds and friendly people. We walked the boardwalk overlooking the water after going to the visitor center. We bought a few things for our kids at very reasonable prices. We will definitely come back.

This is a forgotten Florida. All of south FLorida is an exposed coral reef with grass and muck on top.. There is an eco disaster looming if someone don't get a taste for Boa Constrictors.

Without a concessioner to rent kayaks or give boat tours there is not much to do at this park. The visitor center is informative and they have a movie that shows some of the park. There is also a short shore line trail. Not much else to do unless you have your own boat. If you can, wait until they... More

We went knowing that we couldn't go snorkeling or out on boat tour (just to say that we went to all the national parks in Florida on our trip). It is sad that things fell through with their tours, it would be such a great park. We asked a worker and he said he thought it'd be a year or... More

During our visit to Biscayne National Park they were temporarily unable to offer rentals, snorkling trips, or glass bottom boat tours. There are some repairs underway due to damage from the last hurricane. The park is 95% under water, so without those concessions being available you can't see much of the park. We were able to visit the visitors center,... More

Since 95% of this park is underwater, the part that we could see was at the visitor's center. There's a small exhibit area with real and simulated displays of the plants and wild life that reside in the different portions of the park, both on shore and under water. I took my time and read everything there was with the... More

Unfortunately there currently is not a concessionaire and the park is entirely water and the only way to see it is by canoe, kayak and or boat which are not available. Once a new concessionaire is in place i would love to return.

We visited knowing that we would be unable to do any of the underwater activities. Hopefully they will get a new concession company soon so boats will be able to take people to the reefs. We enjoyed walking through the mangroves and watching the movies. I hope to return and do some snorkeling when it reopens.

Even though we could not see the underwater portion of the park (which is where the majority of it is), it was a very nice visit. The rangers were very friendly and the little walk was pretty. We enjoyed seeing lots of birds.
