The best way to see and experience Biscayne National Park is to get out on, or better yet, in the water. Currently, the park does not have a concessioner, so there are few boat tours to the park's islands or reefs, and no on-demand canoe or kayak rentals. The park is working on rectifying the situation as soon as possible, and details will be announced here once finalized.

Guided Canoe and Kayak Trips are available from January through April.

For other ranger programs, please check our Schedule of Events.

For a list of those authorized to operate tours or taxis inside the park, please see the following list of commercial use authorizations.

If you added up all the different kinds of vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) in Grand Canyon, Yellowstone or Yosemite, you still wouldn't have the number of fish found in Biscayne National Park. You'll have to look closely to see many of them, including this grass porgy.
