Have a Great Day on the Water

We've all been there... a much anticipated day on the water takes an unexpected turn. But being prepared can make all the difference in the outcome. Here are a number of resources to help you "Have a great day on the water!"

The marine waters of the park are well known for boating, fishing, paddling, and birding. Each area has its own unique features and challenges. Narrow channels cut through long banks of mud and seagrass, separating the basins of the shallow coastal waters in Florida Bay. Other areas, such as the Ten Thousand Islands, have sandbars and sharp oyster reefs.
