Sail, paddle, snorkel, and visit an island on a full-day adventure in Biscayne National Park!

Join us as we explore Biscayne National Park under sail. Full-day trips sail east across the bay for several hours before stopping ashore at Boca Chita or Adams Key. Kayak or paddleboard from the boat dock on the island to swim, explore using paddle craft, or snorkel. We use stand up paddleboards while paddling the island mangroves because their low profile allows you to see more beneath the water surface. Stand up paddle boards are very stable and can be knelt on or sat on like a kayak.

Bring your own lunch to eat at a shady picnic table on the island.

Please note:  On this sailing trip we do not go to the reefs on the Atlantic side for snorkeling, instead we snorkel in the calm waters within the bay and alongside the fringes of the mangroves.

A library of relevant books are on board including fish, birds, and invertebrate identification books. Our boats are rigged with shade, but there are also additional areas where you can relax in the sun. We have drinking water on board along with full marine bathrooms and a freshwater hose.
