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.

With 98% of the park under the water you have to get out into the bay to really enjoy it. We took a stroll along the ocean walkway and went into the visitors center and enjoyed the small display. We also did a sailing tour out to Boca Chita that was amazing with a new vendor to the park. This... More

Very reduce schedule during Summer time. Opens ta 7.00 and closes just when BBQ and fishing times becomes better. I suggest to set fish cleaning station with fresh water and waste disposal available.

We just stumbled upon this park when travelling from the Everglades to Miami. It was open late and we absolutely loved the views. After a while, a park ranger asked us if we wanted to participate in a free sunset cruise on the sailboat Adventure, because two people cancelled. Of course we did and it was almost too good to...

We did some research prior to arriving at Biscayne National Park. We had seen the boat tours as part of the park and decided to reserve. Originally, they were only on weekends through May, but they eventually added more tours, Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays at select times in June and July. We ended up taking the afternoon tour (1:30. They... More

Great park, such beautiful grounds, great for an afternoon stroll with family. Learn about the Keys and history of the area and protected Mangroves.
