The boat is not operated by the National Park Service but rather a company called Zerve. The boat leaves from the visitor center dock and the captain and his crew were great! They were very informative, funny, and safe. We especially liked Marty, who was our guide once the boat arrived to Boca Chita. He led us around the island and was full of fun facts about the plants, the island, and the area in general. He's a talker - and relates his tour to his own life as someone who grew up and played in the Biscayne area - made the tour that much better! Get out and enjoy your National Parks! And since this park is 95% water - do it on this boat tour! :)
