Offering the Best in Eco-Education Adventures

The true beauty of Biscayne National Park is that it offers a different experience for each visitor and we can help you gain a deeper connection with the park, its history and habitats, or whatever interests you. Programs range from a few hours to a day in length, and highlight the park’s amazing wildlife, rich history, and awe-inspiring marine ecosystems. Join us for guided and exciting educational eco experiences that can include sailing, snorkeling, paddling, wildlife watching, and exploring the islands.

Located just 20 miles south of Miami, Biscayne National Park protects the northernmost group of living coral reefs in the United States and its ecosystem. Over 95% of the park is “underwater” and is accessible only by boat. It consists of a rare combination of aquamarine waters home to vibrant fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and manatees, beautiful islands with mangrove trees, and unique coral reefs. It also has over 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents.

Explore the mangrove estuaries or the shipwrecks in the bay and ocean or go under the waves to see the colorful coral reefs. Visit the uninhabited Florida Keys and walk the natural beaches and trails. There are also picnic areas and restrooms. Discover this Florida gem with the Biscayne National Park Institute, a non-profit where your purchase directly benefits the park!

Rated "Excellent"

Half Day Snorkel Experience

"Absolutely LOVED this experience! The half-day snorkel experience was fantastic, the crew were friendly and knowledgeable, the reef was spectacular, and it was all organized really well. Great thing to do in south Florida with friends or family."


"If you are looking for a snorkel trip to good reef without the crowds, you’ve found it! Bryce, Danny, and Castle were all very knowledgeable and really love and appreciate their Park. This is a wonderful, hidden gem... a break to the sleepy, natural S. Florida, not far from busy Miami. Enjoy!"

Breathtaking experience!

"My family and I snorkeled one morning a shipwreck with Danny and Captain Michelle. The snorkeling was amazing, the guide and captain were amazing, but most importantly the park was beautiful. I am so thankful I found this opportunity to spend time at the park. Thank you!"

Biscayne NP

"My wife and I went through the exhibits in the visitor's center and then decided to rent a canoe. The staff was helpful and accommodating in answering our questions. We were able to take a leisurely tour around the shoreline by the visitor's center, out to the islands, and up a deadend inlet. Nice and relaxing even though it had been a while since we had paddled a canoe."

Professional & Fun

"These folks know where to go and share interesting information. The visitor center is interesting, but the best way to see more of the park is to go out on a boat. I really enjoyed going to Anniversary Reef for the snorkel tour."
