Kayaking and canoeing not available until November. Also mosquitos is something to consider as well. I recommend visiting but only in the winter months. Nice place for the kiddos to experience nature and see some animals in their natural habitat. They say you can swim there but I don't recommend it unless you are an experienced swimmer and accustomed to... More

This national park is one that needs to be seen from the sea and not from the land at the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. Although there are some things to see and a small boardwalk to walk, it appeared to us that under the sea is where you want to be. The VC was closed, although we were there during... More

Great visitor center and Boardwalk hike at the waters edge but they currently don't have a concession contract so no way to get to reef if you don't have your own boat which is a bummer. They did say they are working on it.

Got my stamp and talked to the ranger and learned quite a bit--very nice. We walked around and saw that most is underwater and there is tons for you to do here--fishing to scuba etc. check it out and plan going on top and under the water--very pretty area.

Biscayne National Park is primarily a marine park that requires a private or charter vessel to explore the keys just north of Key Largo and only accessible by water. The mainland portion is great for kayaking, sailing, fishing, picnicing or just relaxing. Park staff and visitors lead a Family Fun Fest and provide kayak lessons and tours during the winter...

Love that these beaches were less populated than other beaches in the Miami area. The downside is that if you need a restroom you're going to walk to find one. You pay to enter the park but once you're in you're free to visit any of the beaches. The water is clear, the sand was clean, we had a great... More

My husband and I visited the Everglades and Biscayne National Parks in May 2015. We originally planning on snorkeling with a company who cancelled on us last minute. So happy they did because we booked a fishing trip (with Miami Inshore Fishing Charters- highly recommended) and we got a full tour of what most people don't get to see! The... More

I'd been traveling between airports and along strip malls in central Florida for two days before arriving at Biscayne National Park. At my first site of blue, blue water I was blown away. Bad weather soon moved in which made the park beautiful in a completely different way. Park staff - both interpretive guides as well as rangers - were... More

We enjoyed this as a stop along the way from Miami to the Keys. It was a great place to walk around (great walk ways along the water) and to learn about the Keys. The placards on the grounds and the museum were very informative. We were there for about an hour as we just wanted to stop in, but... More

We enjoyed the walkway and the visitors center, especially the rocking chairs on the back porch. I got my National Parks Passport stamped and walked clear out to the point. Lots of folks fishing, families having a picnic, lovers walking hand in hand. Really a pleasant day in Biscayne National Park.
