Boating in Everglades National Park
Boating is a big part of the outdoor activities of this park. Florida Bay represents 1/2 million acres of the park's 1.5 million acres! Visitors planning to enjoy watersports such as fishing, kayaking, or canoeing should take time to make appropriate preparations for a boating adventure in the park. Park waters are often shallow and the resources extremely fragile.
