This is probably a nice trip for most people. I actually injured my back because the water was so rough and I was told to sit at the front of the boat. I would just caution folks to sit at the back of the boat...More

We took a ferry over from the visitors center. It was raining, but luckily the weather cleared. We enjoyed the beautiful water, the view of Miami in the distance, and climbing to the top of the Boca Chita lighthouse. I only dropped a star because...More

We loved the views from this island. Most of the people there were from big boats. Many camped overnight. $25/nightly. Some left their trash behind. Mosquitoes were a problem near the mangroves. Lighthouse is beautiful. The views in every direction are amazing.

Wonderful trip with well informed tour guides. Our kids who are 2, 4, and 7 had a wonderful time. We did a half day tour. You get two hours on the island which is enough time to swim or hike. The beach is made from...More

As you arrive, the guides let you go up the lighthouse for 20 minutes which is nice. You get a nice view from above. There is not much to see in the island, but I am only giving 4 stars because it could be a...More

The trip lasts a little less than 3 hours. The round trip boat ride trip to the island takes up about half of your time. It”s a fairly dull ride - no wildlife of significance. Once you’re on the island you climb to the top...More
