Quick trip to the park this Sunday and I took a boat tour to Boca Chita Key. Loved the ride, the ranger's presentation and the beauty of this little paradise. Suggest going on a week day rather than a weekend if you aren't up for...More

Beautiful location. Plenty of room to sit & enjoy. There's bathrooms located on the key. Beautiful little beach with shallow water. There is a lighthouse you can visit climb to the top. Camping is also allowed.

We selected the Boca Chita Key boat tour only because it was the most affordable option at Biscayne National Park, but it was an incredibly pleasant surprise. The boat ride itself was fun with beautiful views of the ocean, keys, and Miami. Boca Chita is...More

We took the Boca Chita boat tour with the national park. We learned a lot of history of the area on the trip and enjoyed a half hour walk around the island.

I highly recommend the boat ride from the visitor's center to Boca Chita. The tour guides were great, very informative about the park itself, the history of the Boca Chita Island and the keys in general. The lighthouse was cool to see and the island...More

This is by far a hidden gem in Biscayne National Park. Perfect place for camping, relaxing, enjoy the pristine waters or just going fishing and place the fresh fish on the grill.
