“Visit to Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014 NEW

Right on the bay, choices are many; families gather to picnic with choice views of water--Miami skyline in the distance. Walkers enjoy the trail along the water. It's Kayakers paradise. Inside the Visitor's Center is an elaborate display of the variety of wildlife and many treasures to see. Artists display their art in the gallery which holds receptions for the public every few months. Other amenities are rocking chairs on the deck overlooking the water, gift shop, glass bottom boat trips, and ranger led tours.

“Boardwalks and Boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2014

We visited Biscayne National Park because we love National Parks and wanted to get a little exercise by walking the extensive boardwalks in this mostly underwater National Park. We were also interested in the glass-bottom boat tours. We got our exercise in and caught a late afternoon glass bottom boat tour. On our way out to the coral reefs we delighted in a small pod of dolphins leaping along the waves. The visitor's center and museum was closed, which was a disappointment. I would highly recommend the glass-bottom boat ranger-guided tour and walking the boardwalks.

“Many things to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2014

This is a nice park. It was even nicer when they had a concession that had snorkeling trips, but unfortunately is not available anymore, I guess they are looking for someone else. It's a very nice place to walk around, along the bay, there are some areas that you can go in with your snorkel and check the coral reef, but you need booties or water shoes, the bottom is very rocky. You can fish there too and also they have canoes and kayak rental. The visitor center is nice and they have really nice staff willing to help you if it's your first time. There are kids activities and some educational rooms to learn more about the ecosystem around you. Picnic tables and bbq grills are available if you want to spend the day. It's very relaxing (unless there is a lot of people). I just hope they bring back the snorkeling trips.

“Crab city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

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 by water so a boat would be nice. There is a boat tour but it's temporarily unavailable. It's still worth a visit just to walk the docks and trail.

“Biscayne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

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 $
