“Lovely Key Getaway in Biscayne Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This key has a lovely cove for snorkeling; a nature trail through a hammock; grassy areas with picnic tables, grills, and palm trees; a non-functional light house that serves as a navigational aid and provides a nice view; and latrines. There is no running water on the key, but if you plan appropriately, it is a lovely place to get away to for a few hours relaxation, a day's picnic, or several days away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Those who simply want to explore the key for a few hours can take the boat tour from the Biscayne National Park Visitor's Center in Homestead for around $35/person for adults.

“Its a short boat trip to a wonderful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

To get to Boca Chita you will need to buy a ticket at the concession stand. Its a 45 minute trip each way which leaves 1.5 hours to explore the island. Well worth if for another vantage point of the park.

“Beautiful trip, amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2010

We went snorkeling out of Key Biscayne National Park. Great crew and volunteer staff accompanied us. A three hour tour well worth it.

“A very special place for boaters in Miami.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2010

This is one of the hidden gems of South Florida. When we are not fishing or on a fishng charter we love to spend time docked on Boca Chita. We have pictures at http://www.miamifloridafishingcharters.com

We need more places like this.
