Wish we had more time

We missed the boat trip, but enjoyed the visitor center and walking the shoreline. Not too much else for us to do, but it was very nice.

The perfect escape from the city where you'll find everything you hope to experience in Florida. Beautiful vistas, mangroves to navigate, a beach and access to the reef. Too close and convenient to ignore for sure.

Adjacent to Homestead Bayfront Park this hidden place is wonderful. Lovely shoreline walk with boardwalk to a jetty trail that has some great views. Schools of fish around the dock areas. Looks like you can take boat trips out of here to the real part of the park which is in the Atlantic that includes some off coast keys. Visitor... More

My husband and daughter took a Saturday 10am boat tour to Boca Chita Key, and we had a great time! The visitor center has a lot of exhibits, with a lot of hands on stuff for my 12 daughter to check out. Remember, this park is mostly water, so you need a boat to access most of it. They didn't...

We were not planning on boating or snorkling, so thought this would be a quick stop. We wound up spending half a day! There was a lovely visitors center with a good video and museum display, as well as very friendly staff. A nice boardwalk path, as well as swimming area right off the parking lot.

My husband and I took the boat tour from the visitor center to Boca Chita Key. The park ranger was very friendly and outgoing. He made everyone feel like they were family instead of tourist. The lighthouse at Boca Chita was beautiful and we got to go to the top and could see for miles. This was a very enjoyable... More

Biscayne is a gorgeous NPS unit. It's a must visit. The Rangers were friendly and they answered any question you have. It's a park that I will return to. We just didn't have enough time to do it justice!

We hesitated about visiting, but are glad we did. I think if you are a swimmer, snorkeler or diver that you may enjoy even more. We spent a little time in the visitor center and took the boat tour. It is ~ 3 hours and 2 of it are on the boat. We only got off at Boca Chita, and... More
