“Lovely Key Getaway in Biscayne Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

This key has a lovely cove for snorkeling; a nature trail through a hammock; grassy areas with picnic tables, grills, and palm trees; a non-functional light house that serves as a navigational aid and provides a nice view; and latrines. There is no running water on the key, but if you plan appropriately, it is a lovely place to get away to for a few hours relaxation, a day's picnic, or several days away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Those who simply want to explore the key for a few hours can take the boat tour from the Biscayne National Park Visitor's Center in Homestead for around $35/person for adults.

“Its a short boat trip to a wonderful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

To get to Boca Chita you will need to buy a ticket at the concession stand. Its a 45 minute trip each way which leaves 1.5 hours to explore the island. Well worth if for another vantage point of the park.

“Beautiful trip, amazing views”

We went snorkeling out of Key Biscayne National Park. Great crew and volunteer staff accompanied us. A three hour tour well worth it.

“A very special place for boaters in Miami.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2010

This is one of the hidden gems of South Florida. When we are not fishing or on a fishng charter we love to spend time docked on Boca Chita. We have pictures at http://www.miamifloridafishingcharters.com

We need more places like this.
