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.

Flamingo Tongue Snail

When exploring Biscayne National Park's coral reefs, don't forget to slow down and take note of some of the small wonders. Turtles, sharks and shipwrecks are great, but don't miss flamingo tongue snails, Christmas tree worms and mermaid's wineglasses.
