Summer Weather Is Here, What A Great Time To Take A Dip In Biscayne Bay!

New this summer, join our Boca Chita Heritage tour from Coconut Grove in Miami and take a dip to cool off in the calm, clear water of Biscayne National Park. You will still get to visit ashore at the island and do a drive-by of Stiltsville, where you will hear some of the fascinating stories of the park  We have added an hour to the trip (at no extra charge) so you and your family can enjoy floating in the bay.

Have you ever wanted to try snorkeling? Is this your child’s first time snorkeling? Even if you are an experienced snorkeler, this is a great way to beat the Florida heat with a relaxing float in the Bay.

Our Naturalist will get in the water with you so even if you are not a practiced swimmer, there is a comforting voice and presence. Life vests and flotation are provided at no charge.

Snorkeling locations will be in calm clear areas of Biscayne Bay with little current. However, this is not a swimming pool, to better replicate a typical snorkeling experience, you will be in open water usually 5-8 feet deep, and you will most likely not be able to touch the bottom.

You will be snorkeling over seagrass or sand and will not likely see much in the way of wildlife. Book one of our other snorkel trips if you are looking for a more advanced snorkel at the reef or mangroves.

Still not excited about getting in the water? You are welcome to hang out on the boat, in the shade, and enjoy the breeze!
