Crystal blue oceans, sunshine-filled days, and glittering reefs are just the beginning of what Biscayne National Park has to offer. Encompassing over 172,000 acres of southeastern Florida’s pristine lands and waters, the park offers a unique opportunity to explore an untouched tropical landscape just minutes outside the busy metropolis of Miami.

Many of its best-loved features are accessible only by boat, and its southern seagrass ecosystem means visitors can glance at a wide range of unique wildlife, from scuttling crustaceans to leaping bottlenose dolphins. It’s no surprise the park is one of the premier snorkeling and SCUBA diving destinations in the country.

Florida’s known for its dreamy days of sunshine, but it’s important to remember that tropical thunderstorms can make frequent (and sudden) appearances, especially during the high summer months. Always check park conditions before you venture out onto the water. Furthermore, southeastern Florida’s extreme humidity can be quite stifling during the summertime -- but you may not mind, since you’ll likely spend at least some of your time at Biscayne National Park getting wet.

Biscayne National Park draws thousands of visitors each year, eager to partake of its world-class fishing, boating, and underwater adventures. Divers will be especially excited to explore the multitude of nearby shallow-water shipwrecks. The park is also home to a highly-regarded contemporary art gallery, and many different kinds of guided tours of the park are available -- both on and in the water.
