Just an update from the staff and captains at Biscayne National Park Institute after Hurricane Irma. We all weathered the storm safely along with our boats. We are waiting to hear when the park will be open again, we will be up and running as soon as possible. Our hearts go out to all who were affected by this storm and wish all a speedy recovery.
