Things To Know Before You Come

Biscayne Bay waters are very shallow in all directions (NPS image by Matt Johnson).

While there is a lot to be said for carefree, unplanned exploration in some national parks, Biscayne National Park is different. The fact that 95% of the park is covered by water means that there are transportation and logistical issues to deal with. Visitors with their own boats can easily get themselves into costly and dangerous situations without adequate planning. Explore this website thoroughly to learn about the best times of year for the activities you are interested in. Doing so will help you avoid potential disappointments. See the park safety, getting around, where to eat, places to go, and current conditions pages, among others, for more information.
