“Family friendly with lots to do.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Take the glass bottomed boat tour. Not only a better value than most but the long ride through the mangroves to the viewing location was really an added bonus

“beautiful sight of the upper keys area, good safe kayaking trails n more..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

if you haven't been in a tropical island or key this park is for you. Great educational videos, kayaking trails, hiking trails in a tropical hammock(tamarind trail), small beach area with Spanish Canons underwater to create a free of charge snorkeling area. Also a great store with food, Edy's ice cream :-)) and many things to but. This is a must do!

You can take a snorkeling trip to a coral reef located about 5 miles from the shore. You can see a large of marine life. We saw a shark, an eel, and a ton of fish! The staff are helpful and knowledgable.
