Bring a boat.

It's a lovely park, but unless you have a water vessel of some sort, you're out of luck. There is a 1/2 mile trail that is pretty to walk, but that's it. The park store is closed... read more

We saw sea turtles, sting rays, sharks, starfish, jellyfish, and several species of birds and fish! Maria our ranger on board the boat was awesome and... More

National parks never disappoint and Biscayne follows that tradition. The visitors center offers a movie explaining the ecology and origins of the park. They have several exhibits too. Just understand before you arrive that the majority of the parks is water, so to see it you'll need to be in a boat. The national park offers boat tours on Friday,... More

This national park is definitely worth seeing. From first impressions, it seems as if this park is overlooked by tourists. Most of the visitors there seemed to be locals. The area is beautiful! There are places to swim, kayak and scuba dive. There also also boat tours. The only downfall to this park is that there are no kayak rentals... More

To go see nature at its best. The beautiful views of the water, see The background of Miami, see all the fish and sea life is an awesome sight. They have places to have a picnic and bbq. Great to spend the day relaxing and enjoying nature. You can kayak as well.

It's a lovely park, but unless you have a water vessel of some sort, you're out of luck. There is a 1/2 mile trail that is pretty to walk, but that's it. The park store is closed on Mondays.

We went here early morning, free to get in. There is a long wooden walkway to look at the water. You can snorkel off where kayaks take off. It's free just as for a snorkel flag at the visitors center. There are bathrooms to change clothes.

This is an excellent little park. The park is open from 7am - 5:30pm, but we've been out there well past closing time. There are picnic tables, and a very nice pier for fishing or just walking and site seeing. You can rent canoes and kayaks or bring your own. There is a visitor's center that has some interesting displays... More

The Everglades is well-known, but Homestead and Florida City, Florida are gateways to a second National Park as well - Biscayne. Most of the park is within historic Biscayne Bay, but there is a lovely visitors center, a pleasant picnic area and the bird life is usually quite active. There are ranger tours and opportunities to be out on the... More

We took the 3 hour tour and it was super. Our park ranger really knew her stuff and she really enjoyed her job. It was very hot when we went out but the breeze from the boat moving along made it a very enjoyable trip. I would do this one again. It was 27 dollars per adult.
