  • Boating accidents injure and claim the lives of many people each year. Reduce your chances of injury or death by keeping a few basic boating rules in mind.
  • The Zika virus is a viral disease transmitted to people by infected mosquitoes (Aedes species). Florida is in a potentially at-risk area for the Zika virus. Park visitors should be aware of the potential risk for Zika and take steps to protect themselves from mosquito bites. Clicking on the link above will help you to learn more about Zika and to protect yourself from it.
  • Become a better boater with free boating classes provided by the park. The classes will help you improve your boating skills, learn about coral reefs and sea grass beds, understand navigation rules and get involved at Biscayne and Everglades National Parks.
